Sauteed apples packaged inside of crispy wonton wrappers and served with a scoop of ice cream makes for a delicious dessert.
Ingredients
  • 2 sweet-tart apples (such as Gala or Granny Smith), peeled and cored*
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 large egg roll wrappers
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup powdered sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream
Instructions
  1. Slice prepared apples into rings. In a large frying pan, melt butter and sauté apples over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Transfer apples to a plate. Rinse frying pan and wipe clean.
  2. Pour vegetable oil into the frying pan about 1⁄4 inch deep. Heat oil over medium heat until it begins to bubble around the edge, about 325 degrees.
  3. Prepare the apple pockets by laying 4 egg roll wrappers on a flat surface. Wet the outside edges by running a paper towel dipped in water around the rims. Arrange 2–3 apple rings overlapping in the center of each wrapper (cut rings in half if they don’t fit). Mix together the cinnamon and sugar then sprinkle apples with the mixture. Top each wrapper with a second wrapper, and press edges together to create a seal. If your apple rings are small or thin, you can use only 1 egg roll wrapper and fold it like an envelope around the apple slices, as shown in the photos.
  4. Using tongs, gently transfer 1 apple pocket into the oil, and let cook for about 30 seconds, until wrapper is blistered and golden. Turn pocket over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the other 3 apple pockets.
  5. Lightly sprinkle pockets with powdered sugar and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
  6. *An apple corer or melon baller can be used to remove the core without cutting the apple in half. If this seems inconvenient, halve the apples and slice half-rings.
