Ingredients You Need

You will need fresh apples, egg rolls and a few additional baking ingredients.


For the Egg Rolls:

  • Apples: Use granny smith apples for the best flavor. You can substitute with another type of tart apple like Pink Lady or Honey Crisp.
  • Egg Roll Wrappers: You can find egg roll wrappers in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store.
  • Lemon Juice: Adds flavor to the apple pie filling.
  • Sugar: Use granulated sugar for the apple filling. You can use a mixture of granulated and brown sugar for a richer flavor.
  • Spices: This recipe uses a combination of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
  • Cornstarch: This helps to thicken the filling. You can substitute with arrowroot powder, if desired.
  • Vanilla: Adds flavor to the filling. Don’t skip!
  • Butter: Salted or unsalted butter works fine. Adds flavor to the baked egg rolls and helps them get that golden brown color.

For the Whipped Cream:

  • Heavy Cream: You will need this to make the homemade whipped cream for serving. You can substitute with store bought whipped cream, if desired.
  • Powdered Sugar: Used to sweeten the homemade whipped cream.
  • Cinnamon: Adds a touch of fall flavor to the whipped cream. You can omit, if desired.
  • Vanilla: For a light sweet flavor.

Steps to Make Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls

This tasty apple dessert comes together relatively easily with two basic steps – prepare the filling and roll into egg rolls for baking!

  1. Prepare the pie filling. Cook the peeled and diced Granny Smith apples, water, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cornstarch over medium-high heat until thickened and the apples are soft. Stir in the vanilla.
  1. Layer filling into egg rolls. Spoon some of the apple mixture into an egg roll wrapper. Fold up the sides of the wrapper and roll tightly. Repeat with the remaining egg rolls.
  1. Bake the egg rolls. Place the egg rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, seam side down. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes and then brush each egg roll with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake for an additional 5 minutes. They should be slightly golden brown after baking.
  2. Cool the egg rolls for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Be very careful because the filling is hot!

To make these in the AIR FRYER, spray the rolls with cooking spray instead of brushing with butter. Air fry for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, flipping once while cooking.


Cinnamon Whipped Cream Topping

To make cinnamon whipped cream, whisk whipping cream on high speed until soft peaks form. Add cinnamon, vanilla and powdered sugar. Continue whisking until stiff peaks form.

Serve the whipped cream with the easy apple pie egg rolls for the the ultimate dessert.


Expert Tips

  • Substitute the filling with canned apple pie filling. While the homemade apple pie filling comes together quickly and easily, if you’re in a hurry, you can use canned apple pie filling.
  • Do not overfill the egg rolls. You should have enough filling for 8 egg rolls. Do not overfill or the rolls may break.
  • The filling may leak out of the rolls. Some of the juices from the apple pie filling may leak out of the rolls. This is okay.
  • Serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Drizzle with homemade caramel sauce. For even more fall flavors, drizzle these egg rolls with caramel sauce.
