  • Then carefully turn each turon over, brush with more butter and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes until nice and golden. You can serve the turon immediately. Optionally, you can drizzle them with salted caramel sauce and sprinkle with chopped almonds before serving.


  1. You want to slice the apples the same size as much as possible. Think: thick french fries.
  2. You can find spring roll wrappers in the frozen section of your supermarket. Thaw according to package instructions prior to using.
