Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls

On the eve of my recent egg roll extravaganza, my Mom and I had leftover wrappers so we hopped on google and tried to find out what we could do with them. The number one hit for desert egg rolls were apple filled treats. We decided to make our own adaptation of the various recipes we read. Here is what we came up with:


  • 1 package of egg roll wrappers (usually yield 16-18) 
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 1 splash of tap water
  • 2 tablespoons butter (margarine)
  • 2 large apples (I used one granny smith and one gala) 
  • 1/3 cup of white granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons white flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh is better!)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon apple-pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 
    Peel, core and finely chop both of the apples and place in a medium sized mixing bowl.  
  2. Combine all dry ingredients over top of chopped up apples. Add lemon juice to mixture and stir well. 
  3. Leave the apple filling to sit for at least 15 minutes at room temperature. The salt will draw out the water from the apples during this process making your rolls much crispier. 

  4. Once you have let your mixture sit for 15 minutes, its time to wrap your rolls. Take your egg and crack it into a small bowl; add just a splash of water. Place one roll in front of you and add about 2 heaping tablespoons of filling to the center of wrapper.
  6. Fold the bottom corner diagonally toward the top and then fold in each side, being sure to tuck in the corners to prevent spillage of your filling.  
  7. Dip your finger in water and trace the top edge of the wrapper; just as if you were sealing an envelope. Slowly roll toward the top seal and place egg roll seal side down.
  8. Place your apple pie rolls, seal side down on a greased baking sheet. Brush with remaining egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake rolls for 25 minutes, turning at least once until they develop a nice golden brown color. 
  9. Enjoy!
