I love these guys!  They were simple to make and super yummy!

I may be aging myself here but… do you remember being a kid.. the OLD Apple Pies from McDonalds before they were baked?  When they were crispy deep fried instead of flaky?  I loved those… and I miss those!  THESE taste like those!  :)

I don’t deep fry very often so to fry these I put about 3/4″ of vegatable oil in a frying pan and just cooked them a couple of minutes on each side until they were browned.

I used apples fresh off of our apple tree and they were quite soft.  A softer variety of apple is preferred for this recipe as they don’t take very long to cook!  Be sure to cut your apples small.  If you use a harder variety of apple (such as granny smith) they may still be crisp when you cooke the egg rolls.  Although I did not precook my filling, it can be put in the microwave for a minute or so and cooled before filling to slightly soften the apples if preferred.

Or even better…  Make your own Homemade Apple Pie Filling and use it to fill these!!  Delish and easy!

Ingredients

    Filling
  • 3 cups apples, peeled and diced (approx. 3 apples)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Other
  • 12 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • Oil for Frying

Instructions

  1. Combine all filling ingredients and mix well.
  2. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of filling in the center of each wrapper. Fold in the sides and roll the wrapper tightly. Use a dab of water to secure the tip of the wrapper.
  3. Note: It is important to make sure the sides of the wrapper are tucked in holding the ingredients in. If they leak, it can cause splattering.
  4. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Fry each egg roll for about 4-5 minutes or until browned and crispy.
  5. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.

    OH, those McD apple pies, they were good….
    can’t wait to try my hand at these….
    (and in a pinch, you should try the KFC apple pies… very reminiscent)

    • Kim Jensen says

      Yes KFC are just about the exact as MC Donalds pies from the past but a little less sweet. Can’t wait to try this not going to bother folding into eggroll shape just going to Fold the egg roll dough in half and pinch sides like the old pies seems easier.

    • Nicole says

      Hate to burst all your bubbles in regards to Mcdonald’s hot apple pies…………… But they use potato and flavor them to taste like apples (potato is much cheaper then apples) My son’s girlfriend use to work there, this is how I know

    • Renee says

      Same as a fried burrito, moisten the edges of the final fold with some water, press down fairly tightly and chill them to firm them up before frying

  3. Clair says

    Was it just me, or did anyone else find that the apples and filling weren’t cooked? Was I supposed to cook the filling first?

    • says

      I didn’t cook the apples first and mine cooked through. I did dice them quite small and the variety I used was quite soft. (It was fresh off of an apple tree so I can’t say for sure what type it was).

      • Monica says

        I would think it depends largely on the type of apple you use. I would try Boscop or Topaz . Will also try with flaky pastry in oven (less calories).

  4. says

    What a great idea. I just bought some egg roll wrappers today for a different recipe. I think I will try this,too, but might spritz with oil and bake. I don’t really fry much, either. Stopping by from All Things With Purpose blog party.

  5. Luanne Zeller says

    these look great and I plan to make them this weekend. My apples are soft so I cant wait…yummy, thanks for posting!

  6. says

    What a fabulous treat, I will just love these little Apple Pie Egg Rolls. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great weekend!
    Come Back Soon,

    Do you think these could be baked in place of fry? If so, at what temp. and how long? I am not a big oil frying person but these look to delicious to pass up.

  8. Lara says

    I have made these with a healthier twist. You can BAKE these instead of fry them. Preheat your oven to 425. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (I used butter flavor.). Place the rolls seam-side down and lightly mist with more cooking spray. After 10 minutes, flip them and cook additional 10 minutes (total of 20). Apples soften up nicely and no deep-frying mess.

    I mixed some brown sugar and butter in with my apple mixture. SO good!!!

    hi i cant find egg roll wrappers…i got fillo dough sheets but they r thin..not sure how many to use ….where did u guys purchase ur egg roll wrappers?

    • Carolyn Ford says

      you can find them right where the fresh vegetables are, and if you can’t find them there ask anyone that works there or in that area!

  10. Anthony Ball says

    The Arby’s apple turnovers aren’t quite like the old McDonald’s ones, but I think they are even better… sooo good.

    • says

      When I warmed them, I did it in a frying pan. The microwave is not a great option as they don’t stay crispy. You could pop them into a 400 degree oven for about 10-12 minute as well.

  11. Christian Cunard says

    These would be wonder with other fillings too. Even make them for thanksgiving as pumpkin pie egg rolls. I will have to experiment with various filings. I homeschool and this would be a great family project for the kids to see science and wrt all in one.

    • Martha in KS says

      No, filo is paper thin. Egg roll wrappers are thicker – like tortillas. You could use several layers of filo which would basically be apple strudel.

  12. Karen says

    I made these last night and they are so good I thought I might have 1 left for breakfast but they finished them up!!

  13. Jennifer says

    Made these this evening – oh my gosh – they are WONDERFUL!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, they are really, really good and I have now been inspired to make other dishes using the egg roll wrappers, which I’d never used before, thank you!! Great recipe!

  14. Deebi27 says

    OH MY GOSH…these are going to our Christmas get together!!!!! I think I will use a cinnamon/sugar topping for the egg rolls…yumminess!! Thank you!

  15. Gloria says

    Im 45 and part Asian, when little my mother and I used to make these all the time when we ran out of the meat for the egg rolls, and had wrappers left over….we also did peaches and apples blended with a sweeten cream cheese…

  16. Derek says

    Hey Holly, just wanted to say how much I loved this recipe! I used Braeburn apples and served with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream!
    I am spreading the word about your blog and great recipes

  17. Nicole says

    These were delicious!! Even my picky husband loved them!! My first time using egg roll wrappers…what a learning experience!

  18. gk says

    I wonder if they can be frozen and put into fryer frozen? Prob would need inside to have been cooked before wrapping or use canned Pie Filling. Gonna have to try it both ways…fresh and frozen :)
