Lunchable Apple Pies

Secretly...I just wanted something sweet, fast, and not too terribly complicated. I'm not much for chocolate (I know, it's weird), nor am I a huge fan of all those really gooey looking desserts you see floating around the webisphere. You know the ones I'm talking about. They have caramel, oreo's, cheesecake, and other goopy-gooey sweetness all in one fat package. I just can't do it. It's just too much sweet for me. I like a little hint of something sweet, and I'm good.

Enter fruit. I love fruit. I love pie. I love fruit in pie. 
If you are feeling entirely too lazy to make pie crust, but still want a little sweet pie lovin...this is for you!

They are super simple, and only use a few ingredients. So here we go! 

Collect together your ingredients. 

Lay your wrap out so that is looks like a diamond and set your apples in the bottom corner.  I put about two apple slices in each wrap, a sprinkling of cinnamon & sugar.

 I wet each corner with a little bit of water so that they would stick together when it was all folded together. Make sure to press gently to seal it closed.

 For one large apple, I was able to get 8 rolls.

 Pardon the next few pictures, they are terrible. 
You are going to heat a pan of oil, (about an inch deep), to about 350. I didn't use a thermometer, instead I waited until some bubbles formed on the bottom of the pan. 
The oil should bubble like crazy when you slide your rolls in. 
Be careful! (And wear an apron so you don't ruin your favorite shirt.)
 Cook them until the wraps are bubbly and golden brown. Drain off the excess oil on some paper towels.
 When they were slightly cooled, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar.

Here is the Vanilla Sauce recipe. 

1 cup of Powdered Sugar
1 tsp water
A few drops of Vanilla

Stir the ingredients together. Add more sugar or water if it's too thick or too thin. I like mine to be about the consistency of a really thick soup, so it coats the back of a spoon. 

Serve them up on a platter with a dipping bowl of the dipping sauce. These were gone almost as fast as I made them.

The apples still have a nice crunch to them, and the vanilla sauce adds a nice sweetness to them. And they're perfect for little hands! (And big ones too, but watch yourself....You might eat them all!)

I'm betting these would also be awesome with caramel sauce. Now I have to make them again just to see!
