      Caramel Apple Roll-ups
      Drizzled with a homemade glaze, these delicious, seasonally inspired treats include tart apples, cream cheese and cinnamon.

      Serves: 9
      Prep time: 30 minutes
      Cook time: 5 minutes

      Caramel Apple Roll-ups
      1/3 cup white sugar
      1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      2 apples – peeled, cored and diced (try Red Delicious for a sweet flavor or Granny Smith for extra tartness)
      1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
      2 tablespoons caramel topping
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      9 (7”) square egg roll wrappers
      1 tablespoon cornstarch
      1 tablespoon water
      Refined canola oil, for frying (or any oil with a high smoking point*)

      Simple Glaze
      3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 tablespoon milk


      Heat oil in a deep fryer or skillet to 375°F.
      In a medium-sized bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and cream cheese until smooth. Mix in the vanilla and caramel topping, and then fold in apples.
      Lay out egg roll wrappers on a clean surface with the corners facing you. Spoon 2 tablespoons of apple filling onto the center of each wrapper.

      Mix together the cornstarch and water and brush the edges of the egg roll wrappers. Roll up wrappers by folding the corner closest to you over the apple mixture and roll the wrapper over the mixture 1-1/2 times. Fold in the two opposite corners and continue rolling the wrapper so it covers these corners, tucking them in.

      Brush edges with more cornstarch and water mixture if needed, and press to seal.
      Fry the rolls in hot oil until golden brown, approximately 4 to 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on a paper towel-lined plate.
      To make the Simple Glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and milk in a small bowl. Stir well and add more milk if necessary to achieve drizzling consistency.

      Drizzle each roll with glaze, serve warm and enjoy.
      *A smoking point is the temperature at which the oil begins to give off smoke, resulting in poor flavor and burning. Refined oils are extracted using heat so they are more able to withstand high temperatures.

      Tip: Try altering ingredients or rolling up entirely different dessert roll combinations. Raisins, walnuts, honey and sour cream are just a few ingredient examples.
