Apple Egg Rolls

Tired of the same old apple pie? Or the same old egg rolls? Try these instead:

Apple Egg Rolls


1/3-3/4 cups water
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

Beat the egg, mix with water. Combine flour and salt and slowly add 1/3 c of the water and egg mixture. If its too dry, add the water a little at a time until a pliable dough has formed. Knead dough until elastic. Divide into two balls and let rest under damp towel or in a sealed plastic container at least 10 minutes. Divide again into four and roll as flat as you can (or, if you have a noodle maker, use the flat rollers in progressively thinner settings). Cut into squares, fill with apple filling, roll, seal by applying a thin layer of water.

Apple filling:

Several apples, I prefer fujis, galas, or granny smith. Peel and slice.
White Sugar
Brown sugar
2-3 tbsp Flour
Raisins, chopped dates

Mix apples and desired amount of sugar, spices, and flour. Sorry I can't be more specific but it depends a lot on how many apples you used and its hard to measure that kind of thing. The secret ingredient here is experience. This would be the same filling you would use for an apple pie.

Fry rolls in oil until golden brown. Sprinkle immediately with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. If you have leftover egg roll wrappers, cut them into triangles, fry and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or honey. They are like mini elephant ears.
