Pocket sized apple pies! This is a twist of the classic Filipino snack and street food Turon na saging (banana turon). Cooking bananas with brown sugar are wrapped in spring roll pastry and fried. Slivers of jack fruit are sometimes added for a special touch. Instead of bananas, the filling I used is apple and pecans flavoured with cinnamon. Somewhat something that would come from beneath the golden arch, but, trust me, this is way nicer. This recipe makes 10 apple pies.
4 golden delicious apples, cored and shredded
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3/4 c. light brown sugar
3 tbsps. butter
2 tbsps. all purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. pecans
spring roll wrappers
cooking oil for frying
Put all the ingredients, except for the pecans and the spring roll wrappers, in a pan. Stir over low heat until the apples are cooked and the mixture is thick. Set aside and leave to cool.
Wrap spoonfuls in the spring roll wrapper. Fry until crisp.
Serve with cream or ice cream.
