If you are looking for all the great flavors of a caramel apple mixed with a cheesecake but don’t want to stress over perfecting a cheesecake and worry about it cracking. Try these egg rolls instead!

I have included 3 cooking methods in the recipe below, air frieddeep fried stove top and oven baked. My personal favorite way to cook egg rolls is air fried. Not only is it a healthier option with less oil used but it is also much quicker as you don’t need to hover over the oven frying egg rolls in batches. Instead just pop them in the air fryer, set it and come back to perfectly cooked egg rolls.

What is in Caramel Apple Cheesecake Egg Rolls?

ingredients to make Caramel Apple Cheesecake Egg Rolls Recipe
  • Apples – you can use your favorite variety of apples for this recipe, red or green. My favorite is green apples, they are a little tart with a hint of sweetness when baked. You don’t want to use an apple that is too sweet as we will be adding sugar and caramel sauce in the filling so don’t worry about the apples being a little tart! I recommend peeling the apples for the best texture of the filling but if you are in a rush or like the peels you can keep them on.

  • Cream Cheese – a thin slice of cream cheese is added to the center of the egg roll wrapper. The cream cheese does not fully melt while cooking. It creates the perfect creamy texture replicating cheesecake in the interior of the egg roll.

  • Caramel Sauce – store bought or homemade caramel sauce, or Dulce de Leche, can be used for this recipe. I love using store bought to cut down on prep time.

  • Cinnamon and Brown Sugar – to season the apple filling the diced apple are tossed in cinnamon and brown sugar. Once cooked the egg rolls get a beautiful and sweet cinnamon sugar coating as well!

  • Egg Roll Wrappers – egg roll wrappers are found in the refrigerator section of grocery stores (beside the chilled salad dressings and tofu).
    • For a gluten free option use rice paper rolls instead.
