What are egg roll wrappers made of?

Flour, water, egg and salt is what is in the cooked version and rather simple to make. You can also find these ready made in the refrigerator section of most grocery stores.

What can I use instead of egg roll wrappers?

If you absolutely cannot find any, or make them yourself you could use phyllo dough. This is usually bought frozen and once defrosted has layers of thin sheets of paper thin edible sheets.

I have used this to make our air fryer baked brie.

Let’s hear it for Taco rolls from Num’s the Word! You can make cherry cheesecake egg rolls for dinner too.

Yes desserts are oh so good too and a cheap treat your kids can help make too. You can do the frying but rolling up the Peach Cobbler Egg Rolls is easy enough and they will love being involved.
