apple pecan cigar rolls

“Surely the apple is the noblest of fruits.” — Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples

The best apples for baking always has that tart and sweet taste and they do not break down as they cook. Macintosh being one of my favorite, other variety like gala apples are also good but Macintosh get cooked very easily.

As I was planning to have some quick snacks which can be prepared in a jiffy, and should taste good, I thought of wrapping the apples in wonton wrappers. Wonton wrappers are good for making spring rolls and thought of stuffing minced apples along with dried cranberries, which suddenly assumes my favorite fall food status and with some chopped walnut or pecan to go with drenched in some fruit juice bursting with flavors of autumn.

This post is part of Day 1 of the 10th edition of blogging marathon under the theme  “Guilt Free Snacks

apple pecan rolls

Ingredients:

Apple minced : 1/2 cup
Pecan or walnut chopped : 1/4 cup
Cranberry dried : 1/2 cup
Juice of cranberry or cider or any other fruit juice you wish : 1 cup
Cinnamon powder : 1/2 tsp
Wonton wrappers : 4
Butter or olive oil: 1/2 tbsp

Method:

Prepare the filling :

Heat the butter in a pan and add the minced apples and saute for few minutes till the apples become tender. Next add the dried cranberries along with the fruit juice and let it simmer on low heat for couple of minutes till the cranberries soften little. Add the chopped pecans or walnuts and mix well. Sprinkle cinnamon powder over it and let the mixture cools for few more minutes.

Spoon the apple pecan mixture on the wonton wrappers and roll them tightly to make cigar shaped rolls.

Bake in a preheated oven at 325 F for 15-20 minutes till the wonton wrappers turn lightly brown in color.

Serve immediately these crispy apple pecan cigar rolls with a cup of tea or espresso coffee.
