Thanksgiving Pecan Pie Egg Rolls (no corn syrup!)

Per the many requests I’ve received, I wanted to share with everyone my Pecan Pie Egg Roll recipe, made this past Thanksgiving. I know, I know, it’s neither Romanian nor a holiday celebrated in Romania, but it is delicious, and will definitely inspire some Romanian-themed egg roll recipes in the future. Plus, even though this is a Romanian Food & Folklore™ blog, it’s still a food blog, and this is a recipe I workshopped myself, so I think it still counts 😉

Before I jump into the recipe, I wanted to share a few things I’m thankful (Romanian: recunoscător) for, given the holiday this recipe was inspired by:

  • The warmth of a big hug from family and friends.
  • The wet kisses from my crazy pups + the blink kisses from the kit cat.
  • A home I’m able to open up to guests, nurture the mind, body, and spirit, and create memories I’ll always cherish.
  • The constant support, endless love, and ability to spend more time than ever with my husband.
  • And, a Heavenly Father who has allowed these blessings to be part of my life, and the even bigger blessing of his plan.

I’m also thankful for you, my readers and friends, for joining me on this journey, and sticking through the occasional lulls (okay, they might be more frequent than the actual posts…)

Look—! It’s-a me, a-Mario!

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°.
  2. Heat maple syrup until bubbling (approx. 225°).
  3. While heating the maple syrup, add cane sugar and ghee to a bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the two eggs, separating out about ½ an egg, to be used as the egg wash for baking. With the remaining 1 ½ egg, add vanilla and sea salt, and combine.
  4. Pour maple syrup over the sugar and ghee. Let sit for approx. one minute (ghee should be melted).
  5. Add whisked egg mixture and stir to combine.
  6. Mix in pecans, stiring to combine.

    Note: Mixture may be grainy and loose, which is okay.
  7. Pour mixture into a pie pan and cook at 400° for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° after 20 minutes, and continue to cook for another 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  9. Follow the instructions on your egg roll wrappers for filling and rolling. Mine said to place the wrapper with a corner facing you, wet the edges of the wrapper by dipping your fingers in water and running it across, add filling (approx. 2 tbsp), fold corner closest to you over the filling, then the corners to the left and right, and then rolling over the top.

    Note: PLEASE make sure with each fold you seal the wrapper as much as possible. This will help keep the filling IN your egg roll.
  10. Using the ½ a whisked egg you set aside, wash the top and sides of the egg roll.
  11. Cook at 375°, checking at 15 minutes. If egg rolls are nice and browned, flip them over, repeat egg wash, and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
  12. Serve dusted with powdered sugar and/or drizzled with vanilla maple syrup (whisk: ½ c. maple syrup + ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon + 2 tsp. vanilla extract). The egg rolls are best served immediately or within an hour of baking.
