Ube Halaya and Cheese Spring Rolls

Recipe by Connie Veneracion
For best results, chill the ube halaya well before use. Cut the cheese into strips, arrange on a tray, cover with cling film and freeze until rock hard. That way, the cold ube halaya will just warm a bit during frying and not soften to a thin paste. And the cheese will soften without melting totally so it does not seep out of the wrapper.
