Baked Apple Pie Egg Roll recipe. Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls with a Sweetened Cardamom Whipped Cream recipe. Individual apple pie recipe. Baked mini apple pie recipe. Hi All! So juice cleanse is finally over and today is the first day I can introduce real protein, like fish, back into me diet. Today is a happy day, yay! Okay, so while on the juice cleanse weird things started happening and I’m not sure if this is normal or not:

1) I started getting cold ALL the time. I’m usually the opposite and always feel a little warm, but for some reason I was freezing 24/7.
2) I started having weird food dreams….not like awesome food dreams where I’m stuffing my face with short ribs and charcuterie and cheese, but  strange ones where I was making jars upon jars of homemade mayo. (I know, creepy)
3) I felt abnormally exhausted…constantly.
4) My sense of smell was either heightened or altered.

Did any of this happen to anyone?! #4 on the list specifically happened while shooting this recipe. While it was baking it smelled exactly like McDonald’s apple pies! You know the smell; a mix of fried sweet pies, salty french fries and fryer oil all rolled into one. (I’ve made this in the past, but can’t remember if it smelled like this to me before) Teri agreed, totally McDonald’s apple pies..but then again, she was also on the “juice” at the time so we could’ve both been going insane, who knows.

Anyway, once I’m done with this post-cleanse nonsense I’m going to make a big batch of these, along with this cardamom whipped cream (so good!) and eat it all. I probably won’t feel bad about it either , oh well. :) It’s a really simple recipe that’s great to make for a get together…maybe even as dessert for Easter brunch or dinner, just a though :) Enjoy!

Baked Apple Pie Egg Rolls
Makes 16

apple pie filling:
2 green apples (abut 2 heaping cups), peeled and diced
1 lemon, juiced
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons instant tapioca pearls
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground all-spice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
16 egg roll wrappers
sweetened cardamom whipped cream:
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup superfine sugar (granulated is fine)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cardamom

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Place filling ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together until well combined. Allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes.
3. Lay 1 egg roll wrapper onto a clean surface and brush edge with a 1 inch perimeter of egg wash.
4. Spread 3 tablespoons of the filling across one side of the prepared egg roll wrapper.
5. Fold the sides over and brush with egg wash. Carefully roll filling tightly in the wrapper and press gently to seal.
6. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and coat with a thin layer of cooking spray. Repeat until all the filling and wrappers have been used.
7. Bake egg rolls for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Serve immediately with sweet cardamom whipped cream (recipe follows).
8. sweet cardamom whipped cream: Place cream in a mixing bowl and whip with a hand mixer, on medium-high speed. As the mixture thickens, slowly add sugar until fully incorporated. Add vanilla and cardamom and continue to whip until medium to stiff peaks form. Serve with baked apple pie egg rolls.

*Tip: Don’t overstuff these things and make sure the filling is covered by two layers of wrapper. This will help keep the egg rolls from bursting and sticking.

    I’m in love. Pie in the shape of egg rolls? Genius! Totally the best way to eat a pie!!! Congrats on finishing your juice cleanse… I’ve been wanting to try one. But maybe I’ll just make these instead :)

  2. Nicole {Sweet Peony} Not Specified Not Specified

    Oooh forgot to ask… what is the purpose of the tapioca pearls? And what do they taste like? Thaaanks! :)

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Nicole! You’ll notice that this recipe doesn’t have any flour or cornstarch in it…that’s where the tapioca pearls come in…they just act as a thickener for the filling…really no added taste to them or anything! They “dissolve” so to speak as they’re baked!

  3. Averie @ Averie Cooks Not Specified Not Specified

    These look like the perfect thing to reward yourself with after the cleanse. And cardamom whipped I’ll take some of that!

  4. Megan Not Specified Not Specified

    Yes! These look like the best ever! So what if I used to get McDonald’s apple pies 2 for a dollar… That memory makes me want to make these extra bad. ha

  5. RJ (Kids and Cast Iron) Not Specified Not Specified

    I did this a couple weeks ago, but fried, and my husband said the same thing. McD’s apple pie. I have never had one so I wouldn’t know but nine tasted great.

  6. The Culinary Chase Not Specified Not Specified

    Wow! These look so scrumptious and easy to make! Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

  7. Heather (Heather's Dish) Not Specified Not Specified

    you’re basically a genius…now i’m craving these!

  8. Kelly Not Specified Not Specified

    I did the master cleanse and all of those same things you mentioned happened to me too…in particular being cold all the time. I’m normally cold, but I froze my butt off while on the cleanse. The tiredness went away on day 4 for me and then I had boundless energy for a few days after that (mine first cleanse lasted 11 days!).

    These look scrumptious by the way!

  9. heather Not Specified Not Specified

    This is so smart! I love.

  10. Maggie Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m dying! I’m laying in a hotel room starving. We are on our way up to SF Wine Country and I *almost* want head back to San Diego and bake these – like right now! Supposedly it is “National Baking Wee” by the way. I will report back with my results, though I’ve got 100% on ALL your recipes I’ve tried so far :)

    *ps- and yes, the Old School McDonald’s Apple pies are stuff (non-cleanse) dreams are made of!

  11. Amy Not Specified Not Specified

    I love the idea of cardamom with the dipping sauce. This looks decadent!

  12. Mary @ Bake Break Not Specified Not Specified

    Those look FANTASTIC. Awesome.

  13. Ashley Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi! These look great and I would love to make for my girls but I have no tapioca pearls…can corn starch or flour be used instead– if so how much? Thanks!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Ashley! Yep, you can sub out the tapioca pearls for about 1 tablespoon flour + 1 teaspoon cornstarch. I would also recommend adding an extra 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon if you use the flour/cornstarch mixture. Good luck!

      • Ashley Not Specified Not Specified

        thanks so much! cant wait to make tonight!

      • Corrie Not Specified Not Specified

        I just searched all over town and called a few places and no one carries the tapioca pearls. Thanks for posting the alternative. Cant wait to make them tonight!

        • Cindy Not Specified Not Specified

          You can buy Tapioca in and grocery store. Its a box about the size of a Rice-a-roni box, in the baking section and its called Tapioca. The “pearls” are actually granuals. You don’t want the BIG pearls. :D

          These loook wonderful. Going to make them right now!!Yum!! Thanks.

        • Heather Not Specified Not Specified

          Kraft makes them. They are in the baking aisle usually, but the pudding.

      • jessica Not Specified Not Specified

        or you can be lazy like me and just use store bought apple pie filling lol

  14. Emily (New York, NY) Not Specified Not Specified

  19. Mariah Not Specified Not Specified

    There’s so many great things you can put in an eggroll wrapper! Going to have to try these! thanks for the recipe!

  20. Mariana Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi Jenny!
    I love your blog and follow it on a daily basis!
    I really loved your idea and want to try it out!
    However, i live in brazil and it is difficult to find some Ingredients here (in this case, the egg roll wrappers).
    Would you have/suugest a recipe for these wrappers?
    Many Thanks!

  21. shelly (cookies and cups) Not Specified Not Specified

    A juice cleanse? That’s hard core!

    These are the perfect post-cleanse treat :)

  22. Colette Not Specified Not Specified

    Im not sure what tapioca pearls are but are the close to tapioca starch? I have that on hand so what is your recommendation for the starch as a substitute. Thanks!

  23. kale @ tastes good to me! Not Specified Not Specified

    What a beautiful idea!

  24. jeni Not Specified Not Specified

    you ladies take asian-american to a whole new level. LOVE THIS.

  25. Kimberly Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi there,
    I saw this posted on Pintrest and due to your blog name, my mind seemed to think these said “Bacon Apple Pie Egg Rolls.” I might have to try it. Thanks for the recipe. BTW, cleanses tend to make you cold because energetically, raw food is “cold.”

    • Ulla Not Specified Not Specified

      Cleanses make you feel cold, tired and preoccupied with food because you are running on so few calories that you are starving, literally. Those are all symptoms of starvation/anorexia.

  26. mameelynn Not Specified Not Specified

    These look so yummy! Do you know if they would freeze well? I love being able to have individual portions of things frozen to pull out as many as needed and these look like they would work great! Thanks!

  27. Connie Horn Not Specified Not Specified

    could you do this with peaches?????? canned or fresh……or either…..

  28. Jennifer Not Specified Not Specified

    On the tapioca pearls is it something i can buy at walmart? not sure what they are.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Not sure about Walmart, but you can find these at any regular grocery store..around either the baking aisle or the pudding mixes!

    • Jenna Not Specified Not Specified

      You can get tapioca in the baking section at Walmart, and it’s about a buck cheaper than any grocery store in my town :)

  29. Samantha Not Specified Not Specified

    Can I find tapioca pearls in my local grocery stores?

  30. Sara {Home is Where the Cookies Are} Not Specified Not Specified

    Um, wow! Yum! Love the way you turn so many classic things into fun finger foods!!

  31. Laura Not Specified Not Specified

    I was also wondering if anyone has tried to freeze these. If so what your strategy. Freeze before or after baking?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Laura! These guys freeze great! I’ve only tried freezing them pre-bake, so I’m not sure about freezing them post-bake. Good luck!

      • Cori Not Specified Not Specified

        After you freeze them (pre-baked), do you let them completely thaw before baking or have you tried baking them frozen? Great recipe, BTW! I made these last night for the first time, but it wasn’t crispy – it was sorta chewy. Some parts of the wrapper were still pale/white, and texture was chewy. I might try baking at 400 and egg washing/oiling all the sides of the roll to get it to brown and crisp up more.

  32. katie Not Specified Not Specified

    My mouth is salivating just looking at the photos and thinking about how amazing this must be. Must make asap!

  33. PolaM Not Specified Not Specified

    Must be delicious! Can I have some?

  34. Amber Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi, I was wondering if you have ever used Quinoa instead of the tapioca pearls? Maybe add a little health and fiber to this yummy treat.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      I don’t think this will work. Using Tapioca pearls for “tapioca pudding” is different from using it as solely a thickener for apple pie filling….

  35. Naomi A. Not Specified Not Specified

    Stop it. Or give me some. Now.

  36. ginny Not Specified Not Specified

    I am going to make some of these (the cardamom thing intrigues me), but I am also reeeeeally interested in learning about your juice cleanse.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Ginny,

      We did the cleanse through this company called pressed juicery. It was a local place that delivered juices to us every morning. In my opinion, a pre packaged deal is the way to go because if I had to juice my own stuff for every meal, I would probably just end up snacking out of laziness. :)

    These are adorable. Ah, apple pie. It’s not just for Thanksgiving anymore:)
    Incidentally, your symptoms are the exact reason I’m pretty against the majority of cleanses: they put the body in starvation mode. You were experiencing a lot of the side effects of having an eating disorder. I speak from experience.

  39. Tonya Briggs Not Specified Not Specified

    I thought about doing this for Easter dinner tomorrow. But it says to serve right away. But since we won’t be eating them first, Can i reheat them or are they good to just serve as is??

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Tanya!

      You can make these ahead of time and freeze them. Then stick them in the oven right before dessert…I would up the bake time by about 5-7 minutes. Good luck!

  40. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    Yikes, do NOT try this with spring roll wrappers…I ended up with a gooey mess. Will be re making with egg roll wrappers tomorrow!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Oh no! Yes, spring roll wrappers should only be dipped in warm water to make pliable, but never cooked in any way. Hope you have better luck tomorrow!

  42. Erica Not Specified Not Specified

    I can’t wait to make these! Can I roll them up about 8 hours in advance and them bake off? Will they get mushy in the fridge? Thanks!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      If you make them ahead of time like that they should be fine. You might want to throw them in the freezer and just up the bake time by about 5 minutes or so. Good luck!

  44. Martha Not Specified Not Specified

    Where do you find the sweetened cardamom whipped cream?

  45. Kelli Not Specified Not Specified

    I am making these tonight, but I dont have cardamon…. plain whipped cream will have to do!

  46. Debi Not Specified Not Specified

    I don’t have any egg roll wrappers right now. Has anyone used pie crust for the covering??

  47. Karen Not Specified Not Specified

    I made these today and really am not impressed with the apple ones. The wrappers are very, very bland. Finally poured some caramel ice cream topping over them and that made them a little more edible. They were just so tough to bite and chew. Also made some filled with cherry pie filling. I brushed the egg liquid over them before baking. This seemed to be a little better. Thinking I will put some vanilla icing on them when served.
    All in all…….a bit disappointing.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Huge bummer you feel that way. It’s one of my favorites! You say hard to bite into and chew? That’s strange…should be light and crisp.

      Also, wonton wrappers aren’t supposed to have a lot of flavor, at all. You can try egg washing them and sprinkling them with cinnamon-sugar, which should help. Did you make the cardamom whipped cream? That should help too!

      • maryanne Not Specified Not Specified

        I have had similar experience with baking wrappers(tough)…..could it be because they are not fresh?

  54. Nicole Not Specified Not Specified

    I made these this morning, and I was so excited to try them because they sound delicious. For me, the tapioca pearls did not dissolve when baked. When I bit into the roll the pearls were still hard and crunchy making it very unpleasant to eat. I think if I try this again I will use a little bit of flour instead to thicken the filling. Huge bummer!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Did you allow the filling to sit after it was all mixed up? It’s really important to do so (maybe even 20 minutes) as this allies the pearls to soften and “activate”.

  55. Robbie Not Specified Not Specified

    Can you make ahead and freeze? I would love to do these for my son’s grad party. And if so, I would assume you bake AFTER they come out of the freezer…?

  56. Liz Not Specified Not Specified

    Are they just as good if not served immediately as I wanted to make them and take them to a friend who likes fried apple pies . I thought it would be a good substitute for the fried stuff.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Liz! These are best served straight from the oven, but depending on how far your commute is, it should be fine (within 30 minutes to an hour). You could also always “refresh” them in an oven for a few minutes before serving, if they lose their crispness. Good luck!

  64. Nikki Not Specified Not Specified

    I was just wondering if they would work if you made the roll ahead of time and cooked them a couple hours later. Would it affect the egg roll skin or anything?

  65. Zubin Not Specified Not Specified

    So I made these, and the flavors were spot on. Only two issues. The filling blew out of all my wrappers, and I just saw the tip on the two layers of wrapper. Ooops. So do you mean just to use two wrappers when wrapping? Do you egg wash both?

    Also the wrappers were kind of a weird crunchy chewey…I think I’ll fry next time. I like the texture of a fried roll better, I think.

    The cardamom whip cream? Ridiculous.
