Baked Egg Rolls

Adapted from a recipe found at canadianliving.com - using fresh egg roll wrappers from the supermarket, these homemade baked egg rolls will disappear as soon as they're out of the oven. From the Canadian Living Test Kitchen, so it's tested until perfect. Serve with plum sauce or sweet chili sauce.Baking instead of frying gives these egg rolls a different texture some will like and others may not. Missing is the bubbly surface and crisp lightness; in exchange you get even, crunchy texture that's a little chewy inside. The big upside is that there is none of the out-of-control oiliness that we often got making egg rolls at home when the shells leaked. Flavor is terrific and there are some great subtle textures in the filling. Took some time and would go better with practice, but no part of the process was difficult and everything worked. We dipped them in a tangy, gingery plum sauce and loved them.
