I love this time of year for so many reason I can hardly keep track of them all. However, one of my favorite reasons is apples and ESPECIALLY baking with apples! Don’t get me wrong I love pumpkin everything and let’s not forget about the sweet juicy pears either, but for me, nothing beats a warm delicious cinnamon spiced apple dessert. Everything about apple desserts from the way they smell when they bake, to that first sweet bite, to the comforting warm hug of apple goodness that fills you to the brim with food happiness. I think you get my point, I {heart} apples!

Hands down apple pie is the ultimate all American dessert and while I love it with all my heart, sometimes I don’t have time to fool around with a crust and wait for it to bake. Not to mention having an entire pie in my house is bad news for a girl that lacks pie self control. So to remedy this dilemma I came up with a fun and easy alternative, Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls.

These little rolls of apple deliciousness are a perfect substitute for the almighty pie, not to mention they come wrapped up in a nice little package. The filling is your basic apple pie filling with all those glorious flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The “crust”, is these more figure friendly egg roll wrappers (and when I say figure friendly what I’m really saying is we can eat more of them). Finally, the finishing touches of a dusting of cinnamon sugar and a dollop of cinnamon whipped cream complete these portable little rolled up packages of baked dessert egg roll goodness.

Take caution and don’t be like me and try to eat one right when it comes out of the oven, the filling is like molten lava and you will lose several hundred tastebuds if you aren’t patient. Once my mouth recovered I wised up and dunked the egg roll into the cinnamon whipped cream to cool it off. Ahh yes, so this is what heavenly food tastes like! Seriously you guys, they are so so good, you will fall in love! If you are in a time crunch this holiday season and need an easy apple dessert that comes together in a pinch and has all the wonderful flavors of apple pie, then try making these perfect little Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls!

Ingredients

    For the Apple Filling
  • 2 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teapoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the Egg Rolls
  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • 1/2 tablespoon of butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the Cinnamon Whipped Cream
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream, cold
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Instructions

    To Make the Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium sized saucepan over medium high heat add all of the apple filling ingredients except the vanilla and stir together.
  3. Cook the apples for about 3-4 minutes or until the mixture has thickened.
  4. Once the apple filling has thickened turn the heat down to medium low, cover with a lid, and cook for another 6-8 minutes or until the apples have softened slightly.
  5. Remove the filling from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Take one egg roll wrapper, lay it out on a clean, dry cutting board and brush water around each edge. Spoon about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of the apple filling into the upper half of the wrapper, leaving a border.
  7. Fold in the sides and roll up the egg roll tightly.
  8. Place the egg rolls on the prepared baking sheet, seam side down and repeat until all the filling is gone.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes then brush each egg roll with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 5 more minutes then remove from the oven.
  10. Cool for 5-10 minutes before serving with the Cinnamon Whipped Cream.
  11. To Make the Cinnamon Whipped Cream
  12. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whisk the 1/2 cup of whipping cream on high until soft peaks form.
  13. Turn the mixer off and add in the cinnamon, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
  14. Continue to whisk the whipped cream on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Notes

*When assembling the egg rolls be sure to keep the wrappers covered with a damp paper towel as they dry out quickly. **Don't overfill the egg rolls or they will split in the oven.
