Apple and Maple Rice Wrapper Turnovers

March 15, 2022 - By Anick Vézina

Temps de lecture 2 minutes

Sugaring-off season is underway, so here’s a sweet treat featuring the quintessential Canadian ingredient: maple syrup! These 20-minute turnovers are wrapped in a thin rice paper sheet. They contain a decadent homemade maple cream with chunks of apples for a fresh twist!

A perfect creative option for a snack or dessert that celebrates the Maple Tree and its sweet syrup!

Soaking time: 2 to 8 hours

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Quantity: 12 small turnovers (1 portion = 2 turnovers)


  • 1 cup cashews
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and cut into 12 equal pieces
  • 12 small rice paper wrappers (6 inches/15 cm in diameter)
  • Coconut oil (optional) for cooking the turnovers


Soak cashews in 1/2 cup of room temperature water for 4 to 8 hours.

Preparation of the maple butter:

  • In a blender (or food processor), grind the soaked cashews with the water for at least 45-60 seconds on high. The resulting mixture should be thick, creamy, and smooth.
  • Add the maple syrup and blend for a few seconds until well incorporated into the mixture.

Assembling the turnovers:

  • In a dish of warm water, soak the rice paper wrappers for 30 seconds until soft and pliable. Carefully place flat on a clean work surface.
  • Place about 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of maple cream in the center of the rice wrapper, then add a thin slice of apple on top. Bring the 4 extremities of the wrapper up over the filling to seal the turnover.
  • Repeat for all 12 rice wrappers.

Cooking the turnovers:

  • Heat a thin stream of oil in a non-stick skillet over low-medium heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, toast each side of the turnovers for about 2-3 minutes (until golden brown on each side). Make sure the rolls don’t touch each other while cooking, as the rice wrapper are naturally very sticky.
  • Enjoy your apple turnovers with a drizzle of maple syrup alongside yogurt or applesauce.

FYI: Cashew cream can also be used as a spread with fresh fruit slices as a snack.
