If you like the OLD McDonald’s fried apple pies, (used to serve back in the days) you will LOVE these!
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 everything about apple desserts from the way they smell when they bake, to that first sweet bite of a warm delicious cinnamon spiced apple dessert.
I think you get my point.
I LOVE apples…
I LOVE apple pie…
from old fashion Apple Pie to Cinnamon roll Apple Pie ! But, sometimes I don’t have time to fool around with a crust and wait for it to bake. So, I came up with a fun and easy alternative, Apple Pie Egg Rolls.
These little rolls filled with your favorite homemade apple filling are a perfect substitute for the almighty pie, not to mention they come wrapped up in a nice egg roll little package, dusted with powdered sugar and served with a caramel dipping sauce.
If you’re in a hurry, you can use canned apple pie filling.
I prefer to fry them, but use your own preference.
