Apple Pie Egg Rolls

As soon as apples hit the market in the autumn, our minds turn to apple pie and turnovers, preferably accompanied by large spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream. However, if you’re running short on time, or are inexplicably freaked out by pie dough (like me), you may be tempted to whip up a dessert that incorporates all of the flavors of apple pie, without the fuss.

That’s where this ingenious recipe from Tasty Kitchen member Alaska from Scratch comes in. Instead of rolling out pie dough, just cut open a package of egg roll wrappers, which can be found in most supermarkets. The apple pie filling is classic and simple: apples, sugar, lemon and spices. Bundle up the filling in the egg roll wrappers and bake. Half an hour later, you’ll be digging into these crispy treats.

Now, let’s get cooking.

Here’s what you’ll need for the Apple Pie Egg Rolls: a couple of apples, a lemon, sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, salt, egg roll wrappers, an egg and a little sugar and cinnamon.

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray the parchment with non-stick spray.

Mix it all up and try not to sneak a few pieces. I’ll bet you can’t resist. I know I couldn’t.

Beat the egg in a small bowl.

Lay one egg roll wrapper on a cutting board, and brush the egg wash around each edge.

Scoop about 2 tablespoons of apple filling towards one edge of the wrapper, leaving a border. Fold in the sides and roll up the egg roll tightly.

Place it on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and apple mixture.

Bake until parts of the wrappers are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush each egg roll with melted butter, then sprinkle each with cinnamon sugar. Return to the oven for 5 more minutes.

These are just amazing. Thanks for the warm delicious love. My pregnant wife love these.

I just made these tonight for a group of 12. They definitely needed a tad more sugar and I’m really not even into sweet things. I thought they were a tad dry and a bit bland although the dryness could have been the particular brand of egg roll wrapper I used. I really wanted to like these since they were so easy to make. They did look cool though.:)

Ohh! I love this recipe! Can’t wait to try them out. Years ago we loved to order “Apple Flautas” from our neighborhood Schwan’s food delivery. This will be a great replacement because I’m always up for homemade vs store bought!!

I wonder if these would freeze well?

Kristen Levitt on 12.5.2012

Have you ever tried making these and freezing them? Was thinking about assembling them and the freezing them unbaked. This could be a helpful make ahead entertaining dessert. Thoughts?

@Mary O ~ I was wondering the same thing!
