Guest Post #2: Apple Pie Egg Rolls

Bonjour mes cheris, get excited for me! After I finish these exams I am wading through right now, half of year 12 will be forever finished and over with! YAY!

Mais non, focus, FOCUS! It certainly is not over yet no matter how much I dream about year 12 formal. Ah, c’est la vie!

Anyhow, while I am not here to give you recipes, tips, tricks and well, my blog, I have some pretty fan-friggin-tastic fabulous chefs lined up to do so instead! A whole range of dishes for you to enjoy while I am on this undesired break ;) – You won’t even notice my absence I promise!

See you soon for the April holidays and wishing you all a marvelous Easter break! Promise me you will chow down on what that Easter Bunny brings you/your chocolate loot stashed in the bottom of your drawer – Yes, I am on to you all :D

Cheers

Hi all you CCU fans out there!  My name is Ramona from Curry and Comfort and I am here today to help Urvashi (aka: Chip Uru) out while she off acing her exams.  I have been a fan of Chip Uru for a while now.  She never fails to amaze me with her sweet treats and fun writing.  I wish I was as clever and accomplished when I was a teenager (and that was a very, very long time ago).  After reading one of Urvashi’s posts and drooling over her confections, I always think that if my own daughter turned out to be such a well-rounded and mature young lady then I did something right raising her.  I am sure Urvashi’s parents are very happy with their little baking maven. :)

Now I’m not as accomplished with the sweet treats as my dear friend Chip Uru because my blog tends to focus on savory food… especially spicy curries.   But I had to come today with a sweet offering for you. So, I came up with these fun Apple Pie Egg Rolls.  They are so easy to make and if you eat them hot with some caramel sauce and powdered sugar… it could be life changing.  Well… maybe that was just me :) So here’s my humble sweet recipe… hope you CCU fans out there enjoy it. :)

  4. Have all egg rolls done before frying.  Do not lay on top of each other so they don’t stick together.100_2731
  5. Fry each egg roll until golden brown. You want your oil at 350 degrees (180 degrees C). Drain on paper towels.

Oh these would be life changing all right, I would bet my money on it! The crackly spring roll wrappers giving way to a piping hot apple pie filling mixing with caramel sauce – Ramona, you are killing me (and I don’t think me alone!) :P

Thank you for sharing this sweet and addictive recipe my friend! I know, she says she focuses on savoury and then suddenly releases her dessert powers :D

    Has anyone tried to pre make these in bulk and freeze to fry at a later date? and can you fry them frozen? for how long?

  2. Apple pie egg rolls! What a treat! I look forward to trying them–anything sweet and tasty in an egg roll wrapper has to be tried. :-) And I love curry, so I will make my way over to Curry and Comfort, too! Keep your focus, CCU! You’re almost there! Hooray!

    Wonderful guest post Uru, thanks to you and thank you Ramona, those apple pie rolls seem awesome. Made my mouth water. Pardon me while I go clean and possibly leave to buy some eggroll wrappers :))

  4. Eva Taylor says:

    Nice to meet you Ramona. While I usually shy away from deep fried recipes, this one might just be the one I splurge for. It’s does look lovely and inviting and crispy.

  5. Cher says:

    Those dessert egg rolls look a-maz-ing. Great guest post.

    Best wishes on your second half of the year! Stay focused, my friend. (May daughter has three months – 95 days – left of her 12th grade and she can hardly contain herself…)

  6. petit4chocolatier says:

    What a wonderful guest post. These look absolutely delicious. Love the idea of apple pie egg rolls. Very creative and outstanding :)

    I agree with what you said about Urvashi being a talented teenager, I was so surprised when I found out that she is still in high school! Urvashi – all the best with your exams.
    Ramona – clever trick to use egg roll wrappers as the pastry, saves having to make it from scratch and you can have these apple pie egg rolls ready in a pinch which is the way to go!

    Ramona, if you were a teenager many, many years ago, it surely doesn’t show. You look as vibrant as Uru! Thanks for your egg roll wrapping tips and a delicious dessert recipe, too.

    Uru, go get ‘em! (Your studies, not the apple pie egg rolls… although if you were to choose the latter, I’d completely understand.) ;)

  9. Love this post! I agree, Ramona. Uru is like 16 or 17 going on 40 years old. She is so mature and incredibly gifted for someone so very young. Amazing to me. Go for it, Uru! The world is your oyster as they say!

  10. Ramona, what lovely comments about Uru! She is a sweet and fabulous gal, smart, witty and uber talented. Don’t knock your baking skills – these pies look ah-may-zing! I LOVE deep fried apple pie so needless to say, I’m drooling over my keyboard right now.

  11. Deanna says:

    Wow! These look delicious! And I just happen to have some lovely local apples right here…hmmmm… Congrats on finishing your exams–glad you are posting again!!

  12. Romona these apple pie egg rolls have the ponytails names all over them. They definitely fall into the category of fun desserts! I also agree with you that CCU’s parents must be very proud of their baking maven. As a mom I have thought the same as you — I’d be delighted if one of my girls had a sparkling personality and the initiative to bake and share in such a clever way as CCU does. Nice to meet you Ramona — I will pop by your blog soon!

  13. Acacia says:

    Wow these look amazing! If it weren’t 35 degrees+ I would be whipping out my deep fryer and giving these a shot.

    On a side note, Good luck on your exams CCU! (I hope that you will post a photo of you formal dress for us all to Oooo-and-Ahhhh over!)
