Pineapple Ginger Cigarillos

October 26, 2019



    I haven't spent anytime on sweets lately so I thought I would create a fruity, crispy treat with a tropical twist. Pineapple and ginger compliment each other,  The ginger gives a little bite to the pineapple and the pineapple sweetens and mellows the ginger. 

    These cigarillos are great for dessert, but I really enjoy mine with a cup of strong coffee as a nice breakfast or an addition to brunch. 



2 cups of fresh pineapple

2 teaspoons of pureed ginger

3 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 tablespoon of butter

1/4 teaspoon of salt

12 egg roll wrappers

1 egg white

1/3 cup of coconut oil (canola or vegetable oil also works)



Dice the pineapple into small pieces (1/4 inch or smaller).  Melt the butter in over medium heat in a skillet.  Stir in the brown sugar.  Add the pineapple, pureed ginger and salt.  Soften the pineapple mixture over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes.


Set aside the mixture and allow it to cool.


Place 2 tablespoon of the pineapple mixture in each egg roll wrapper. Fold the sides, roll and seal the edge by brushing with egg whites.  Heat the oil to 350 degrees in a deep skillet or chicken fryer. Fry the stuffed cigarrillos for 1 minute or until golden.
