Apple Pie Egg Rolls!! Warm crispy egg roll wrappers filled with a delicious and simple apple pie filling.
If you like the OLD McDonald’s apple pies (the fried ones!) you will LOVE these!
We love to dust these with powdered sugar or drizzle them with homemade caramel sauce!
I have a thing for anything apple pie from Apple Pie Bread to Upside Down Cheesecake Apple Pie! Apple pie just tastes like homemade comfort.
These apple pie egg rolls have been a top dessert on the blog for years and we’ve made them countless time. I may be aging myself but I remember back to the OLD Apple Pies from McDonalds (before they were baked)? When they were crispy deep fried instead of flaky… I loved those and THESE taste exactly like the original apple pies!
These yummy little bundles are filled with a simple homemade cinnamon apple filling kissed with cinnamon. When choosing apples for this recipe, you’ll want to make sure you use a softer variety of apple (and cut them small) as they cook very quickly!
If you use a harder variety of apple (such as granny smith) they may still be crisp when you cook 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.
If you’re in a hurry, you can use canned apple pie filling. Chop the filling into small pieces (and I usually add an extra dash of cinnamon).
Roll the rolls tight and ensure the filling is well sealed because if it leaks, it will cause the oil to splatter. If you don’t use a deep fryer, you can fry these in 3/4″ of vegetable oil in a frying pan for a couple of minutes on each side until brown and crispy. Drain well on paper towels and serve warm.

What cooking oil due you use to cook the Apple Pie Egg Rolls?
Hi Charles, we often use vegetable oil for this recipe.
Can these be made ahead of time and fried later?
Hi Linda, we haven’t tried prepping this ahead of time but I would love to hear how they turn out for you! My main concern would be that the apple pie filling would cause the wrapper to get too soggy if made ahead too far. But I think they should work though, if stored in the fridge I would bring them out to sit at room temperature while you are heating up the oil.
Could you use the air fryer
Hi Sue, we have not tried this recipe in the air fryer but other readers have had great success! Good luck!
Looks like a good source for a change up in cooking.
I’m wondering if this idea might work for other pies.
Very good! I sautéed the mixture (using agave nectar in place of sugar) for a few minutes prior to filling with great results. I also wrapped half small bananas sprinkled with apple pie spice and sugar. Delicious dipped in caramel sauce
Have you ever made with fruit other than apples? I have baked and tried air fryer and they are both delicious
Hi Allison, we haven’t tried making these with other fruit but I think it would taste great! Just adjust cook times accordingly if you’re using a softer fruit than apples, they will be done sooner!
What a disaster. I rolled with 2 heaping tablespoons of filling. I only got 8. I made sure the oil was 350. The egg rolls were done in less than 2 minutes. The filling was raw, apples were not cooked. I always make new recipes, as stated. This was a disaster. I now have them in the oven at 250, wrapped in aluminum foil. What a waste of time.
I’m sorry these didn’t work out for you, how disappointing, most readers have had great results. The apples definitely would not be cooked in 2 minutes. If your egg rolls were done in less than 2 minutes I wonder if the oil temperature was too hot.
Your picture says this is Air Fryer then your recipe says to use oil and deep fry. What’s up with this? Dissatisfied and disappointed. Zero stars for the recipe.
There is no mention of air fryer at all in this recipe.
I think what Rhonda is referring to is on Pinterest the pin shows up as “best air fryer recipes”. I think someone must have pinned the recipe as an air fryer recipe. I love the idea and will try your recipe in my air fryer as an experiment.
