Introduction: Apple Pie Rolls
Step 1: What'chu Need
3 cups of apples (peeled, cored, and chopped)
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Egg roll wraps
1 egg (you can substitute water, if you want.)
Alternatively you can substitute almost all of the ingredients with a can of pie filling. This would speed up the whole process, but for the sake of an instructable I'm going with the complicated route.
*If you choose to use canned pie filling you can skip straight to step 6.
Step 2: Prepare the Apples
Peel and core your apples. This step seems easy huh, not with that peeler.
Step 3: Get ANGRY!!!
In this step you realize that something terrible has happened to your favorite piece of cutlery.
*This step isn't necessary, but it happened.
Step 4: Back to Work
Find a replacement knife and get to choppin'. You could probably get away with using only three apples, as I had quite a bit of left over apples.
Step 5: Cook the Apples
In a medium sized pan, melt your butter, add the chopped apples then add the brown sugar and cinnamon.If you put the brown sugar and cinnamon in first it will burn, and make everything smell like smokey cinnamon. Cook over medium-high heat, and stir often until the apples are brown and tender.
After you're done place them in the fridge to cool down, (approx 30 min) Go watch an episode of Fraggle Rock or something.
Step 6: Rollin
Lay out one wrap and brush over with the egg white (or water.) Place approximately two tablespoons of apples onto the wrap, and roll it up, remembering to tuck in the ends.
Step 7: Boil'em
Set your fryer to 350 degrees, and cook, two at a time, until they begin to turn golden brown. They tend to get kind of chewy if you cook them to long, so feel free to experiment with it. When removing the wraps remember to allow the oil to drain out, unless you want a mouth full of boiling, oily, mess. Remove your wraps to a paper towel, and sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and sugar, and you're done.
Step 8: Enjoy
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. You will only want to actually cook as many as you plan to eat, as they get soggy and don't reheat well.
