Consider this a tasty experiment in mutant cooking: an apple-pie like filling inside and Asian dumpling skin. Deep-fried and served warm with a bit of powdered sugar, it's a head turner. I was inspired by a number of things, one of which was a fried fruit pie at a McDonald's in Beijing. Seriously. You can read more about this concoction and get the recipe on Vietworldkitchen.com.
Note that the pineapple filling in Asian Dumplings (page 195) can also be used to create a deep-fried pineapple spring roll. I was also thinking that instead of the spring roll recipe, you could use the simple flaky pastry (page 113, like what you'd use for samosa). One of the gluten-free dumpling doughs would work too.
