For the Apple Filling:

  • 4 medium apples (Granny Smith or Honeycrisp are great choices), peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water

For the Egg Rolls:

  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Oil for frying (vegetable or canola oil work well)
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)


Prepare the Apple Filling:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
  2. Cook the apple mixture for about 5-7 minutes, or until the apples begin to soften and release their juices.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with water to create a slurry. Add this to the apple mixture and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and the apples are tender (about 2-3 more minutes).
  4. Remove the skillet from heat and let the apple filling cool to room temperature.

Assemble the Egg Rolls:

  1. Lay out an egg roll wrapper on a clean, flat surface, with one of the corners pointing towards you (it should look like a diamond shape).
  2. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the apple filling onto the center of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the bottom corner up over the filling, then fold in the left and right corners towards the center.
  4. Roll the wrapper up towards the top corner, brushing the edges with the beaten egg to seal.
  5. Repeat this process with the remaining egg roll wrappers and apple filling.

Fry the Egg Rolls:

  1. In a large, deep skillet or a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350°F (175°C). Make sure the oil is hot enough to fry the egg rolls evenly and make them crispy.
  2. Carefully place a few egg rolls into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry them for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg rolls from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Serve the Egg Rolls:

  1. Once all the egg rolls are fried and drained, dust them with powdered sugar for a sweet finishing touch.
  2. Serve the Apple Pie Egg Rolls warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Tips and Variations:

  • Apple Variety: Experiment with different types of apples to find your preferred flavor and texture. A mix of sweet and tart apples can create a well-balanced filling.
  • Spices: Adjust the amount of cinnamon and nutmeg to suit your taste. You can also add a pinch of ground cloves or allspice for a more complex flavor.
  • Baking Option: If you prefer a healthier alternative, you can bake the egg rolls instead of frying them. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C), place the assembled egg rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and brush them with a little melted butter or oil. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  • Dipping Sauce: Serve the egg rolls with a side of caramel sauce or whipped cream for dipping.
