For The Blueberry Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 7 tablespoons water, divided
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

For The Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Additional Ingredients:

  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Preparing the Blueberry Filling:
    • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the fresh blueberries, sugar, 3 tablespoons of water, and lemon juice.
    • Allow the mixture to cook until the blueberries burst, which should take around 3-4 minutes.
    • In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining water with cornstarch until smooth. Then, add this mixture to the blueberry mixture and stir until thickened.
    • Once thickened, remove the blueberry filling from the heat and set it aside to cool.
  2. Creating the Cream Cheese Filling:
    • In a medium-sized bowl, beat the room temperature cream cheese with an electric mixer until it becomes fluffy, which typically takes around 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, and continue to beat for an additional 2 minutes until everything is well combined.
  3. Assembling the Egg Rolls:
    • Take one egg roll wrapper and place a couple of tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture in the center of it.
    • Top the cream cheese mixture with a spoonful of the prepared blueberry filling.
    • Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water, then fold in the sides and roll tightly to seal the egg roll.
  4. Frying the Egg Rolls:
    • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or frying pan until it reaches 375°F (190°C).
    • Carefully add the assembled egg rolls, a few at a time, into the hot oil.
    • Fry the egg rolls for a few minutes per side until they turn golden brown and crispy.
    • Once cooked, transfer the egg rolls to a paper towel-lined plate to allow any excess oil to drain.
  5. Serving:
    • Just before serving, dust the freshly fried egg rolls with powdered sugar for an added touch of sweetness.

Serving and Storage Tips:

  1. Serving:
    • Serve these Blueberry Cream Cheese Egg Rolls warm for the best experience. The contrast between the crispy exterior and the creamy, fruity interior is truly delightful.
    • For an extra indulgent touch, consider serving these egg rolls with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
    • Garnish with fresh blueberries or a sprig of mint for a beautiful presentation.
  2. Storage:
    • These egg rolls are best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
    • To reheat, place the egg rolls on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through and crispy.
    • Avoid storing the egg rolls at room temperature for an extended period, as they may become soggy.
    • While these egg rolls can be frozen, it’s best to freeze them before frying. Place assembled but uncooked egg rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until firm. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container and store for up to 1 month. To cook from frozen, fry as directed, adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time until they are golden brown and heated through.


  1. Fruit Variations:
    • Experiment with different fruits for the filling, such as strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. You can use fresh or frozen fruits depending on availability.
    • Try mixing different fruits together to create unique flavor combinations. For example, a mix of strawberries and kiwi or raspberries and peaches could be delicious.
  2. Savory Variations:
    • Instead of a sweet filling, try a savory twist by filling the egg rolls with ingredients like cooked chicken or shrimp, shredded cheese, and vegetables like spinach or mushrooms.
    • Add herbs and spices like basil, cilantro, or garlic powder to enhance the savory flavors.
  3. Nutty Variations:
    • Incorporate nuts into the filling for added crunch and flavor. Chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans pair well with the creamy cheese and sweet fruit filling.
    • Consider adding a drizzle of honey or maple syrup over the egg rolls after frying for an extra touch of sweetness.
  4. Chocolate Variations:
    • For chocolate lovers, add chocolate chips or chunks to the cream cheese filling for a decadent treat.
    • Serve the chocolate-filled egg rolls with a side of chocolate sauce or whipped cream for dipping.
  5. Citrus Variations:
    • Infuse the cream cheese filling with citrus zest, such as lemon or orange, for a refreshing twist.
    • Serve the egg rolls with a citrus glaze made from powdered sugar and lemon or orange juice for a tangy finish.


  1. Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones?
    • Yes, you can use frozen blueberries for the filling. Simply thaw them before using and adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  2. Can I make the egg rolls ahead of time and fry them later?
    • Yes, you can assemble the egg rolls ahead of time and fry them later. Just be sure to store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to fry, and allow them to come to room temperature before frying.
  3. Can I bake these egg rolls instead of frying them?

  4. Can I substitute the egg roll wrappers with something else?
    • If you can’t find egg roll wrappers, you can try using phyllo dough or even puff pastry, though the texture may be slightly different.
  5. How do I prevent the egg rolls from becoming soggy?
    • Make sure to drain the cooked egg rolls on paper towels to remove excess oil, and serve them immediately for the crispiest texture.
