Not So American Apple Pie

Hey Hey and Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was full of Christmas shopping, dates with the Hubby, awesome happy ending Hallmark Channel movies and lots of holiday baking. Hope everyone has a great week planned! I know mine will be full of present wrapping and sweet treat making. I've decided this week will be full of different holiday treats anyone can make. Come back soon to see what I've dug my hands into!

Since I've gotten over my fear of frying foods, I decided to try this recipe out...Deep Fried Apple Pie!

It's got apples, sugar, butter & a new ingredient I can put under my apron belt...spring roll wrappers!!
To be honest, I had never seen them before they were fried up. Who knew they looked like that? Oh, everyone but me?'s what else you'll need:
 I borrowed my sister's apple-peeler-corer-slicer for this project and it saved me a ton of time!
How fun right?! This thing makes snacking on apples not so boring! BTW...This is on my Christmas list for any family member out there who reads my blog ;) Once you have the apples cut up, mix them with the melted butter, sugar, juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. When they're nice and soft, let them cool then add to the spring roll wrap. Roll it up, fry it up and!
They're so good, even my snowman wanted in on the action :)
They're so crunchy on the outside and so sweet and chewy on the inside. A perfect combination! The caramel sauce took them to another level! Milk was very necessary :)

 Oh and just when I thought these couldn't get any better, I added ice cream! Bam! Dessert done!
3 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced up
1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 package spring roll wrappers
Vegetable oil, enough to fry with
Caramel sauce
Powdered sugar for garnishing

Start off by peeling and slicing and coring the apples. Set aside. In a medium sauce pan melt the sugar, butter and lemon juice over medium heat. Once fully melted, add in the nutmeg, cinnamon and apples. Stir until the apples have softened, about 10 minutes. Let sit until cooled.

For the spring roll wrappers I had to run mine under water for just a second to get the paper more pliable. I'm not sure if mine were old or what, but they were not easy to roll up until I did this. Put about 2 tablespoons worth of apple filling on your wrap and roll it up. You can try to roll them without wetting them if they seem flexible enough. Either way, on your final fold wet your fingers and the edges to seal the wrapper together. Heat your oil over medium high heat to 375 degrees. Gently place your apple-filled wraps in the oil and let 'em fry until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. Remove and let them drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with caramel sauce and powdered sugar. Enjoy!!
