Apple Pie Egg Rolls


Apple Pie Egg Rolls

Enjoy the bounty of fall apples with these fun and delicious Apple Pie Egg Rolls! 
Apples are all abound at the grocery store... and I love it.  I think you can really get into "an apple a day" with these egg rolls.  
Don't bother with rolling out a pie crust... just buy some egg roll wrappers and make some crispy and delicious egg rolls for dessert tonight!

1 package egg roll wrappers (about 20)
powdered sugar
Store bought caramel sauce *** if you decide not to make the homemade version below**

Apple filling:
4-5 medium granny smith apples (peeled, cored and finely diced)
1Tbs of fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1-2 Tbs of butter
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
small pinch of salt

Caramel Sauce: (from the Pioneer Woman)
1 packed cup brown sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
4 tablespoons butter
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Apple Filling:
Peel the apples and diced small.  In a pan add apples, butter, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then add  brown sugar and cook on medium low for 4-5 minutes until the apples are tender, but not mushy.  Cool apple mixture before proceeding.

Caramel Sauce:
Mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook while whisking gently for 5 to 7 minutes, until it gets thicker. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Turn off the heat, cool slightly and pour the sauce into a jar. Refrigerate until cold.

Egg Rolls:

Add about 2 Tbs of filling in the center of egg roll.   Fold  bottom corner over and sides in.

Roll tightly and seal the edge with water. Have all egg rolls done before frying.  Do not lay on top of each other so they don't stick together.

Fry each egg roll until golden brown. You want your oil at 350 degrees. Drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with caramel sauce for dipping.  Enjoy.
