Apple Pie Egg Rolls
- 2 cups diced apples (peeled and cored)
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 10 egg roll wrappers
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (for sealing)
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
- Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)
- In a bowl, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Toss until the apples are evenly coated in the mixture.
- Lay an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface, with one corner pointing towards you.
- Place approximately 2 tablespoons of the apple filling diagonally on the lower half of the wrapper.
- Fold the bottom corner over the filling, then fold the left and right corners towards the center. Roll the wrapper tightly towards the top corner, sealing the edge with a small amount of all-purpose flour and water mixture.
- Repeat the process with the remaining egg roll wrappers and apple filling.
- Heat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or a deep fryer to approximately 350°F (175°C).
- Carefully add the egg rolls to the hot oil, frying them until they are golden brown and crispy, turning them occasionally for even cooking.
- Once cooked, remove the egg rolls from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
- Sprinkle powdered sugar over the egg rolls, if desired, for an added touch of sweetness.
- Serve the apple pie egg rolls warm as a delicious dessert. Pair them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgence.
