Soul Food Saturday #28

Welcome to the last weekend in October! Halloween is knocking on the door, and before we meet again it will be November! Today Bekki is here with a fun dessert perfect for this time of year. Serve it at your next bonfire party, save it for the upcoming holiday parties, either way, I think you're going to love this one!

Lately I have been thinking a lot about desserts. Maybe it’s the idea of the Holiday season just around the corner. I have pumpkin, apple, and every other kind of pie dancing through my mind. I saw this recipe on Facebook and it looked so delicious, I couldn't pass up the chance to give them a try. With a little tweak here and there voila I was off and running. The ingredients are easily swapped to recreate your favorite pie. Bring the kids in to help you with this one, they may just surprise you by creating a new favorite for the whole family to enjoy.

Apple Pie Egg Rolls Adapted from Spending with Pennies
3 c. apples, peeled and diced (approx. 3 apples)
4 tbs. honey
3/4 tsp. Apple Pie Spice
12 Egg Roll Wrappers
Oil for Frying

Combine all filling ingredients and mix well. First, place 2 full tablespoons of filling in the center of each wrapper. Moisten around entire edge with water to seal, with either your finger, or a brush. Start fold by folding corners over the filling. Then pull bottom corner over and keep rolling until it’s tightly wrapped. Repeat with the rest of wrappers. **Note: Be sure that the edges are sealed well, so the filling does not ooze out and cause the oil to splatter** In a skillet, heat oil to 350 degrees F. Fry a few at a time, for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Top with powdered sugar, or eat plain with a tall glass of milk. Either way you choose, they are sure to fill that sweet tooth quick. Enjoy!
