Apple Pie Egg Rolls

by Milisa on January 4, 2011

Apple Pie Egg Rolls

I saw one of the Food Network stars making apple chimichangas and thought I had to have some for myself.  I bought flour tortillas and apples, and then I used the flour tortillas for tacos.  Still wanting some kind of fried apple pie dessert I used the egg roll wrappers I had in place of the flour tortillas.  I know, I know frying dessert just makes it more sinful, but these are totally delicious. Maybe they would be good baked, but not as good as fried.  I was sad the day McDonald’s stopped frying their apple pies, but I recently discovered KFC still fries theirs!  I served these up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce, and it was heaven!

UPDATE: I did an interview with the Casper Star-Tribune newspaper and they made a video of me making these Apple Pie Egg Rolls!  Watch it!

Apple Pie Egg Rolls


1 tablespoon butter

3 cups apples, peeled, cored, and diced

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

5 egg roll wrappers

vegetable oil for frying

for garnish:
1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Cooking Directions:

In a medium size pan, melt butter, add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often until apples are tender.  Pour into a bowl and place in the refrigerator to cool, about 3o minutes.

Place about 2 tablespoons of apple filling into each egg roll wrapper, wet edges of wrapper with water, roll up sealing edges.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Heat oil to about 350 degrees, add egg rolls two at a time, turning to cook all sides, remove to paper lined plate and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Repeat with remaining egg rolls.

Serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, it’s good!

My mouth is simply watering! I love this idea – it’s so adorable and sounds so delicious! Anything fried is sure to be, isn’t it?

This is awesome! One of the more unique apple pie themed recipes that I’ve seen in a while. I’ll give it a try this week. Thanks for posting it.

Like mcdonalds APPLE pies are made from potatoe!!


Meg January 14, 2011 at 6:34 am

I have been making a version of these for over ten years now. They are also incredibly delicious with cinnamon ice cream and a caramel sauce. Or, a vanilla ice cream, as posted above, with a cinnamon caramel sauce.

Amazing Fruit Pie Wontons

These individual size pies are a perfect dessert. A lot more nutritious and vegan than many other pies you could make or buy. These goodies are crispy, sweet, gooey, and make the most of seasonal fruit. Print the recipe and bake some up tonight!

Isnt this the same thing as apple strudel?


Tracey Knaus March 11, 2011 at 6:16 am

These look amazing! A restaraunt here makes these, but with a Banana/cream cheese filling….it’s called a Banana Xanga……sooooo amazing!


Peg March 24, 2011 at 5:16 am

Where can I find the egg roll wrappers?


Milisa April 14, 2011 at 2:46 am

They are usually in the produce section of most grocery stores.


Cabubsmom May 19, 2011 at 12:43 am

I wish I had the guts to make these AND fry them, but my whole life is diet controlled maddness and fat worry, but I am sure they will be good baked :) Thanks for the recipe :)


Tina July 14, 2011 at 1:27 am

Now that is a recipe I can relate to.. gonna try it with cherry and peach filling.. Love hostess cherry pies but they don’t come with as much filling for the 400 calorie amount on the package so if I can make my own then i won’t ever have to buy them again. Thanks for sharing


Joyce Tong July 14, 2011 at 1:28 am

Couldn’t you use puff pastry? That would eliminate the frying. I’m going to try it. Just not sure if I should roll them or fold them. Decisions..decisions!!


fajas colombianas July 14, 2011 at 10:57 pm

I will be doing this on the weekends but we dont have egg roll wrapers localy available in the market. Is there any other substitute for this? like the wrappers for shanghai rolls.?


Lindsey @ Why Just Eat July 15, 2011 at 8:29 am

What a fun idea!! These look absolutely yummy and fun. Thanks for the great idea!!!


jasmin August 10, 2011 at 8:04 am

this is mouth watering, I love your recipe, will definitely cook this one. thanks for sharing.


DJ August 17, 2011 at 11:52 pm

You are absolutely brilliant! When it comes to sinful desserts, if you’re going to go there, might as well go there in style. know what i mean?


Deb September 4, 2011 at 11:30 pm

These apple empanadas can be found at Taco Time any day of the week and we have been making them for decades at our house . Nothing new I’m afraid.


Eleanor September 9, 2011 at 8:08 am

Thank you thank you thank you for the idea. These were delicious!!!! I blogged about it and linked your site. My husband loved these as well. Great hit.



Krista {Budget Gourmet Mom} September 16, 2011 at 1:49 am

Oh goodness, just Stumbled these, Miss. I must make these! They look SO good!


Christy September 19, 2011 at 8:04 pm

I just taught a painting class this weekend where one of the gals brought these with her (she found the recipe on Pinterest)- WOW they were amazing! She served them with a Cinnamon Vanilla Sauce that was the perfect compliment to “travel” with.


Michele September 22, 2011 at 2:52 am

First saw these on pinterest. They look so good! Also wrote about them on my blog, I hope that’s ok. I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Kimberly Temple November 8, 2011 at 4:25 am

Hmmmmm, sounds delicious! I know my mum would love these. I’m not too big of an apple pie person, I wonder if these would work with pumpkin? I know pumpkin’s a bit….liquidy. Eh, I should make these anyway! :D


Lily November 9, 2011 at 6:18 am

What a great idea! I have a few packages of egg roll wrappers laying around and now I have an idea of what to do with some of them. Thanks!


Brandon @ The Yummy Bits November 14, 2011 at 2:14 am

Are you kidding me? This looks amazing! I will have to try this sometime…


Heather December 3, 2011 at 3:43 am

This is AMAZING and easy!! I used coconut oil and it turned out great! Don’t forget the ice cream!


Janiece Wade January 16, 2012 at 12:40 am

wonderful recipes


jean February 5, 2012 at 4:05 am

Can I bake these in the oven instead of frying? No fryer and also a healthier alt… What temp and for how long do you think?


Gordon April 10, 2012 at 1:37 am

For you health nuts out there cook with coconut oil on the pan instead of vegetable oil. Cooking with vegetable oils is not good for you.


Terry November 26, 2012 at 9:28 am

I made these tonight and added some Philadelphia Cheese Cake filling you get in the tub in the dairy section as an added twist. It was spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Laurel Hamilton October 15, 2013 at 7:40 pm

We’re having a “fry party” at work. I’d like to bring these as my contribution. I could make these ahead of time, refrigerate them, and then we could fry them at lunch, couldn’t we? Would we let them get to room temperature first? I’m a fry novice.
