Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

Oil for deep frying
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 stick real butter
3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts)
1 egg yolk
Egg roll wrappers
Granulated sugar
Bananas or other various fruits (optional)

Instructions

Preheat deep fryer to 350 degrees. Combine corn syrup and butter in a small saucepan. Cook on low heat 10-15 minutes. Add coarsely chopped nuts, until consistency is thick. Beat egg yolk to make an egg wash. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with one of the points facing you so it looks like a diamond shape. Place 1/4 cup of the filling in the center of the wrapper, do not overfill. Put egg wash on the sides of wrapper. Pull in the two sides of the egg roll wrapper and then take the point and roll. Deep fry for three minutes being very careful. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel. Roll in granulated sugar and serve hot with ice cream. You may also use bananas or other fresh fruits or pie fillings in this recipe.
