Ingredients

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peel, core and chop into small chunks (about 4 cups)
  • cups water
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

For The Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

For The Apple Cinnamon Filling

  1. In a medium saucepan, over low heat, bring water, cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice to a boil, stirring constantly.

  2. Continue stirring for 3-4 minutes until sauce thickens up.

  3. Once sauce has thickened, add chopped apples, stir and let simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

For The Cream Cheese Filling

  1. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.

  2. Add sugar, vanilla and lemon juice. Beat for an additional 2 minutes.

Assembling The Egg Rolls

  1. Add 1-2 heaping tablespoon of cream cheese filling in the center of the egg roll wrapper followed by a heaping 1-2 heaping tablespoons of apple cinnamon mixture.

  2. Using your fingers, dip into water and rub water along the edges of the wrapper. This will help seal the egg rolls.

  3. Fold outside edges inward over the filling and then roll the front edge up over the filling and towards the back.

  4. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet or frying pan to 375°.

  5. Place a few egg rolls at a time in pan and fry until golden brown on both sides.
