Fried Chocolate Truffle Apple Pies

Filling:

  • 3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored and finely diced
  • 2 tsp lemon juice (~ juice from 1 lemon)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Apple Pie Spice (see Apple Pie Granita recipe in sidebar for spice mix)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

1 Package Egg Roll Wrappers, Chocolate truffles of choice (I use Godiva), Oil for frying, Ice cream and confectioner’s sugar for topping

As you chop apples, add to the bowl with lemon juice. Mix apples and juice. Add all the other ingredients to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Continue for another 1-2 minutes and the mixture will start to thicken. Add the apples and simmer for about 6-10 minutes until the apples are soft. Remove from heat and cool.

Place the egg roll wrapper in front of you as a diamond shape. Place the  filling in the  middle, slightly towards you leaving room to the right and left. Slice the truffle in half (I like Godiva chocolate mango truffles) and place on top. Fold the bottom diamond over the  filling. Fold the left and right corners into the middle. Fold the top over the middle. Make sure you seal all ends (with water or egg wash/whites). Heat the oil to 375 degrees F. Place the pies in the oil and cook until golden brown, between 1-2 minutes. Upon removal dust with sugar and serve on top of a scoop of your favorite ice cream. For the ice cream, I make a homemade frozen creme anglaise but you can use any good brand-a vanilla works well. Keep this recipe handy to make a quick easy treat (the filling keeps in the refrigerator) while you’re busy with holiday menus.
