Egg Roll Crisps with Apple Cider Syrup
Egg Roll Crisps with Apple Cider Syrup is the first of five recipes that I have entered in the Twin Dragon Asian Wrapper Blogger Recipe Challenge! JSL Foods sent Egg Roll Wrappers, Won Ton Wrappers, and Gyoza Wrappers (Potstickers) to inspire me and 75 other food bloggers to create Asian or Asian fusion influenced wrapper recipes. Twin Dragon Asian Wrappers are a blank canvas waiting for my innovation and cravable creations!
Fall Inspire Creations
Two of the five recipes that I will be entering in the contest are inspire by the flavors of Autumn. Apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, and sweet potatoes are just a few of the ingredients I used to create easy and delicious recipes. This will be a week long celebration of recipes, dedicated to Twin Dragon Asian Wrappers. The first recipe we will be sharing is a dessert recipe, based on recipes that can be found in many ethnic cultures.
Cinnamon Sugar Crisps
You will find some form or another of this recipe in almost all ethnic cultures. In Norway they have Fried Norwegian Cookies or Fattigmandbakkeles, in Poland they have Polish Fried Cookies or Chrusciki, and in Spain it’s Churros. I’m positive that this list goes on and on, after all anything fried in hot oil and dusted with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar is going to taste good! Am I right or Am I wrong…as my grandma would have said.

Stack em’ Up
For each serving stack em’ up! For each serving place one egg roll crisp on a plate, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture, then drizzle with apple cider syrup. Place another egg roll crisp on top, sprinkle with additional cinnamon sugar and drizzle with some more apple cider syrup. To finish place another egg roll crisp on top, drizzle with more syrup, a shake of powdered sugar and your good to go or in this case, your good to serve and enjoy.
