Ingredients

3 Tbsp
crystal decorating sugar or regular sugar
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
8
canned, lychees, drained and quartered lengthwise
8 large
ripe strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 Tbsp
ground cinnamon
12
6-inch square spring roll wrappers
4 Tbsp
unsalted butter, melted
ice cream, your favorite flavor, for serving

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
Toss 1 tablespoon of the sugar and the cornstarch with the lychees and strawberries in a large bowl until combined.
3
Mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl.
4
Lay a spring roll wrapper on a work surface with a corner pointing toward you and brush the surface lightly with melted butter.
5
Put 1 heaping tablespoon of the lychee mixture into the center of the wrapper.
6
Bring the two side corners together so they meet over the filling.
7
Bring the bottom corner up over the filling and roll the wrapper tightly around the fruit.
8
Set the spring roll on the baking sheet with the exposed corner down; continue rolling with the remaining fruit and wrappers.
9
Brush butter all over the surface of the rolls and sprinkle each with a little of the cinnamon sugar.
10
Bake until light golden brown and crisp, about 10 minutes.
11
Do not overbake - the fruit will begin to break down as it cooks and can ooze out of the wrappers.
12
Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving with a scoop of ice cream alongside.
