Make the best of everything!: Egg roll wrapper Pumpkin Pies

Egg roll wrapper Pumpkin Pies


I have been in a pumpkin kind of mood so far this fall.  When I was up in Chicago visiting family over labor day, I was able to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, which was a pleasant surprise. 

I grew up in Chicago land.  I now live in Southeast Iowa.  The closest Starbucks is about 90 minutes away.  I have learned to make do.  A local coffee house here in Ottumwa, called the Lucky Rooster makes a " Falling Leaves" Latte which has pumpkin and gingerbread! ( Amazing!)

Well anyway, I decided to make these mini egg roll wrapper pumpkin pies to get my pumpkin fix in. 

I am so happy I have discovered the Egg roll wrapper.  1 egg roll wrapper is only 80 calories, which is so much better for you then pie crust!!  I used only 1/2 an egg roll wrapper to make each mini pie!!


I decided to make each mini pie pumpkin shaped.  Just because its fun!

How to make Egg Roll Wrapper Pumpkin Pies! 
Makes 6 mini pies. 

Ingredients 
1/4 can of canned pumpkin
1 egg white
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 pinch of nutmeg.
3 egg roll wrappers
1 tablespoon olive oil.  ( or other oil. I used olive oil and was extremely happy with the flavor)

1) With a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter, cut out 4 pumpkins on each egg roll wrapper.  You will need two pumpkins for each pie. 

2) In a bowl mix the rest of the ingredients.


3) drop about a  teaspoon of the pumpkin mixture on a egg roll wrapper pumpkin. 

4) Cover it up with a second pumpkin and seal it shut with a fork.


5) Brush each pie with some olive oil. 

6) Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Or until brown to satisfaction. 


7) Let cool for about 5 minutes before eating. 

Oh my goodness. these were Delicious!  I did not think that they would be this good!  I think that using olive oil instead of canola oil made a big difference in the flavor! 

Egg roll wrappers are a great alternative to pie crust.  Wonderfully fattening pie crust should be a special treat at Thanksgiving and Christmas and maybe once or twice during the summer.  The rest of the time you can use egg roll wrappers and a healthier alternative!

This summer,  I also used egg roll wrappers for my Egg Roll Wrapper Calzones.  Check them out!

These are perfect... I think I will give them a try and as Hubby doesn't like pumpkin pie, I would only have a few to eat :). Have you tried freezing them? Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and remember to come back and vote on Sunday. Newest follower.

Adorable and brilliant. I did some pocket pies with plain ol' pie crust, fun to use something else. Thanks so much for sharing.

Fabulous idea! No egg roll wrappers around here, but actually we do have the dough used to make Moroccan Cigars, and I'm thinking that it's very similar, since those cigars are also filled and fried......just more cigar shape! Thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday!
