Fried Cinnamon Apple Turnovers Recipe:


2 Granny Smith apples, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1½ tablespoons cinnamon
1 pack of 5 large cinnamon rolls
1 egg Vegetable oil
Cinnamon sugar for coating

Directions: Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in a pot to 350˚F/120˚C. Pat chopped Granny Smith apples dry with paper towel. Mix in brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tbsp. of flour. Open your cinnamon rolls and reserve icing. Cut the cinnamon rolls in half and roll out each half into a 2 in x 2 in square. Place a dollop of icing and apple mixture onto the square.

Beat egg in a bowl and brush the sides of the square. Fold the square into a turnover shape and seal closed with your finger, making sure to get the air out from inside. Primp the edges with a fork. Place turnovers into oil and fry for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Toss in cinnamon sugar. Serve and enjoy!
