Pumpkin Cheesecake Egg Rolls

These Pumpkin Cheesecake Egg Rolls are the perfect combination between pumpkin pie and cheesecake, all wrapped up and fried until golden brown. It’s basically State Fair food all jacked up on pumpkin-pie-spice-crack.

You’re welcome.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Before we talk about how awesome these egg rolls are, can we discuss my husband’s thought process when it comes to doing projects around the house?

You see, my husband works for 5 weeks and then gets 1 week off. Usually when he gets that week off we have a trip planned or tons of little day trips that we take, but this week… we have nothing planned. So he’s here, in my work bubble.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Egg Rolls

Yesterday he decided that he was going to vacuum the living room, which was awesome, until I realized it was my husband who wanted to vacuum. This is how it went down…

11am: He pulls out the vacuum and plugs it in. Something beeps on his iPad and he sits down on the couch to address the beep, and then gets distracted reading the news, watching youtube, etc.

12:30pm: After some gentle nudging from me, he claims that vacuuming the living room rug is virtually pointless and it needs to be shaken out outside. Then he requires my assistance to do this task.

1:30pm: My 3 year old daughter decides to climb the vacuum that is still sitting out. It falls over on her. She cries, and I rush to her aid. I proceed to tell my husband this wouldn’t have happened if he would have just put the vacuum away…

3:00pm: The older kids get home from school. The vacuum is still out and the rest of the living room has still not been vacuumed yet. He tells the kids to pick up all the toys and stuff off the carpet.

5:00pm: He decides to invite one of his work buddies over for dinner. He quickly finishes vacuuming the living room, then asks my son to wind up the cord. The vacuum is left in the middle of the kitchen.

5:30pm: Fed up, I finally put the vacuum back in the closet.

I’m wondering what task he’ll choose today… send help.

Also, send me some more of these Pumpkin Cheesecake Egg Rolls! My son actually came up with the brilliant idea of putting cheesecake in egg rolls, although he wanted to use cherry pie filling instead of the pumpkin pie filling. I figured since it’s Fall and all I better try using pumpkin… yes!

I found this great recipe for a Cherry Cheesecake Egg Roll from Spend with Pennies that I used as inspiration for this recipe. I whipped up a quick pumpkin pie filling, but if you have any leftover pumpkin pie lying around I would use that instead!

My daughter recommends rolling these guys around in cinnamon and sugar like I did for these Birthday Cake Egg Rolls. I highly recommend serving with some whipped cream on top too!

Ingredients

  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 oz. Challenge Dairy Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon sugar, optional
  • whip cream, optional (but highly recommended)

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy bottomed pot or deep fryer to 375 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile whisk together the pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl until smooth. Transfer mixture to a zip close bag and set aside.
  3. In another small bowl whisk together cream cheese, lemon zest, juice and 3 tbsp sugar until smooth. Transfer mixture to a zip close bag.
  4. Snip the corner off of the bag with the cheesecake mixture and squeeze a strip of the cheesecake in the center of an egg roll wrapper. Snip a corner off of the bag with the pumpkin mixture and squeeze a strip next to the cheesecake strip. Brush all the edges of the egg roll wrapper with water and fold up the egg roll, sealing it, to prevent any mixture from coming out in the fryer. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.
  5. Fry the egg rolls for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil and roll around in the cinnamon sugar if desired. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before topping with whip cream (if desired) and enjoying!

Notes

If you have any leftover pumpkin pie, you can use 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture in place of the pumpkin mixture used in this recipe.

  1. I am sorry to say that I am just dying of laughter over here, as I would assume that would go the same way in my house. But on another note, these cheesecake egg rolls looks insane!! I have been wanting to do a deep fried pumpkin pie for awhile but I haven't been home for weekends on end to do it. I will certainly be trying this once I break out the deep fryer!

    This sounds an awful lot like blintzes. Could they taste like them, you think?? Can't wait to try them.. Also would like the answer to baking them. Thanks.
    1. A blintz is quite a bit different, but I suppose it's similar in the fact that it's filled with a sweet cheese. Blintzes are filled with a ricotta cheese, so this is going to be a lot smoother in texture than a blintz. As for baking, I would try spraying them with cooking spray and then baking for 10 to 15 minutes at 425 degrees F. Hope that helps! :)

    At least your husband knows what closet the vacuum is kept in....mine wouldn't even be able to find it. Can't wait to try this recipe, love making goodies with Won Ton Skins and Egg Roll Wrappers...yummy!
    1. Hey Eleanor, I would think they would turn out baked as well. I'm thinking if you spray them with cooking spray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 425 degrees they should turn out. Let me know how it works!
  4. State fair food on crack it is! You have put two of my favorite things together, egg rolls and pumpkin pie! However, I would have never thought to have combined the two to create this awesomeness. I will give these a whirl as soon as I get another can of pumpkin!
