There are just some ingredients that don’t lend themselves to small batch cooking. They don’t come in small packages or they don’t freeze well so you can’t really plan to use them later or, if you are like me, you know if you toss the remainder in the freezer you will forget about them and end up throwing them out in 6 months anyway.
Egg roll wrappers are one of those ingredients. I used 8 of them in the air fryer traditional egg roll post so I had 6 or 7 wrappers left. What the heck I am I going to do those leftover wrappers?
I am currently in deep, mad, love with Pizza Hut’s apple pie dessert. Don’t ask me why. I just am. So I wondered if I could make something similar using my air fryer, egg roll wrappers and a homemade apple pie filling. The good news is I totally can so now I stop ordering pizza just so I can get apple pie for dessert. Lol.
The best thing about these pies is you don’t have to cook the filling first.
Inspired by Dessert For Two
1 medium Honey Crisp apple, peeled and chopped
1/8 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS sugar
5-6 egg roll wrappers
In a small bowl, combine the apple, allspice, cinnamon and sugar. Mix until the apples are well coated. Add 3 tablespoons of the apple mixture to the middle third of the egg roll wrapper. Fold each side of the wrapper toward the middle of the filling.Bring the bottom third of the egg roll wrapper over the top of the filling and roll up.Use a bit of water applied to the wrapper with your finger to seal the egg roll. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees for 2-3 minutes while you finish filling the egg rolls. Once all the egg rolls are rolled, lightly spray them with oil or cooking spray and place in the air fryer basket. Bake for 10 minutes flipping half way through the cooking time.
