Recipes Faux Fried Apple Pies (Vegetarian, Holidays, Dessert)

Number of Servings

    2 tablespoons butter

    5 cups diced peeled apples (about 4 medium)

    4 tablespoons sugar, divided (can use Stevia in the Raw)

    1¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

    Pinch of ground nutmeg

    Pinch of salt

    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

    2 teaspoons lemon juice

    8 egg roll wrappers

    4 teaspoons oil


Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat until just starting to brown. Add apples, 3 tablespoons sugar (or Stevia), 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface with one corner facing you. Lightly brush the edges with water. Place about 1/3 cup of the apple filling in the center. Fold both sides of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the bottom corner and roll up as tightly as possible. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Heat oil in the pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the rolls and cook, turning frequently, until golden brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes total. Dredge the hot rolls in the cinnamon-sugar.
