  • 1 package Gefen Egg Roll Wraps, defrosted

  • oil for frying (I prefer avocado oil for its high smoke point)

Optional Dessert Board Add-Ons

  • fresh cut fruits

  • vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt

  • cherry or berry cream (equal parts pie filling, such as Gefen + whipped cream, blended)

  • whipped cream

  • melted chocolate (place small pieces of chocolate in a small ziptop bag, then put the bag in a cup of boiling water)

  • any store-bought cream (nougat, custard, halva, Rosemarie, etc.)


Prepare the Fritlach


Prepare a frying pan with oil alongside a cookie sheet lined with paper towels.


Slice the wrappers in half lengthwise. You can work with two sheets of egg roll wrappers at a time using a pizza slicer (it’s easier than knife).


Make a two-inch slit in the center of each slice. Be careful not to cut them all the way down. Holding one end, pull the other end through the slit, until its fully twisted.


Fry them in oil until light brown. When removing fritlach from pan, place them on the edge of the cookie sheet on an angle so the excess oil can drip down and they won’t become soggy.


Sprinkle with powdered sugar once they are cooled off, preferably right before serving.


If creating the dessert board, feel free to use your own combination of fruits and toppings.
