2Golden Delicious applescored and sliced (see note 1)
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place an oven-safe wire rack on top of the parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. Toss the apples in the cinnamon sugar and let sit for 10 minutes.
Put a spring roll wrapper on a flat surface and place 5-6 pieces of apples near the bottom.
Fold the bottom corner once.
Fold it again.
Take one side and fold it into the middle of your turon. Make sure to wrap the apples snuggly.
Take the other side and fold.
Fold the turon upwards again and dab some cornstarch water on the remaining wrapper on top. This helps seal the turon.
Fold one last time.
Place the turon on your prepared baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
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.
You want to slice the apples the same size as much as possible. Think: thick french fries.
You can find spring roll wrappers in the frozen section of your supermarket. Thaw according to package instructions prior to using.
