Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Welcome to Inspiration Cafe!  It's Mary, from Sweet Little Bluebird!  I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!  Today I'm sharing a fall favorite...Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls!!!  


This fall treat is so simple to make and a favorite go-to dessert.   You can use apple pie filling from scratch or canned and enjoy them hot or cold.  They are wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream or cold, wrapped in wax paper in your hand....so so good.


Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Ingredients 

  • 8 Flour Tortillas (I use Large Size Tortillas
  • 6 Medium Size Tart Apples, Peeled and Sliced/Diced (I use Granny Smith)
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 
  • Dash of Nutmeg (about 1/8 teaspoon - optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • *1 1/2 Tablespoons Melted Butter (to brush on top of tortillas)
*Cinnamon Sugar Recipe to sprinkle on top of tortillas
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Stir sugar and cinnamon together until well blended.
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.  Butter (grease) a 9X13 baking dish.  Next, combined all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Toss the sliced/diced apples in the lemon juice, then pour the dry mixture over apples.  Stir the apples making sure they are coated well. Place a 1/2 cup of the apple mixture and spread in the center of a tortilla.  Roll the tortilla and place in pan, seam down.  Repeat 7 more times.  Note, You may only be able to fit 7 rolls in your pan.  Once rolls are in pan, lightly brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, making sure to sprinkle in between each roll on their sides. Cover with foil and bake on middle rack of oven for 40-50 minutes. Bake until apples reach desired texture.  Remove, enjoy hot or cold.  Great served warm with vanilla ice cream!  I love them cold, wrapped in wax paper in my hand- so good! 

Baking Tips

  • For crispier tortillas, remove foil with 10 minutes left for baking. 
  • For a QUICK version, you can use canned apple pie filling {I use Duncan Hines®}.  Brush the tortillas with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
Cheers!

Mary,
Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe on my Blog Hop! I never would have thought of using tortillas instead of pie crust. I am so intrigued! :) I'm going apple picking this month and will definitely make these!

Mary ~ said...

Thanks for visiting, Jane! They were a major hit in my home with family and friends. I've made 3 batches in 5 days. Everyone loves the texture of the tortillas. They are really good cold too! For a quick batch, canned pie filling works great, I just sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on the pie filling. Hope you like them as much as we do! Thanks again for the visit!

Mary these look so good and I think they're perfect for fall! I'll be drizzling a little caramel sauce across mine! Yummm!

These look so good! I love apple pie and think these would be a great way to make a similar dessert quickly. I'm stopping by from Mop It Up Mondays. I'm also a new follower! I look forward to more great recipes! I also love your blog design.

Mary ~ said...

Thank you, Emily! Thanks so much for visiting Sweet Little Bluebird!

Good call on the caramel sauce, Danni! I just added to the grocery list!

Mary ~ said...

Hi Winnie, Thank you & you're so welcome! I can't wait to make these when it's cooler outside! They will be one of my easy go-to desserts for now on! Hope you're having a great Labor Day! Thanks for stopping by!

Mary ~ said...

Thank you for the sweet words. You'll have to let me know what you think, if you make them. My girls (ages 9 & 15) LOVE them, so do their friends. For now on, I'm keeping a can of apple pie filling in the house for a fast, yummy dessert. I've used canned apple pie filling before ~ even though it's not as good as fresh apples - they were really yummy and so fast to whip up! Thanks for visiting and for the follow! Hope you're having a great Labor Day.

I couldn't tell if the tortillas turned out soft or not but either way it looks delicious. Thanks
Mari

Mary ~ said...

Hi Mari ~ Thanks for the visit! You can make them soft or crispy. Simply remove foil 10 minutes early while baking! If you do the short-cut version with canned apple pie filling, just bake without the foil for a crispier tortillas. Hope you are having a great Lador Day!

Mary ~ said...

Hi Debi~ I would love to join the party on Wednesday, I'll be there! Thanks so much for the invite and thanks for visiting and leaving a sweet comment. Hope you're having a great Labor Day weekend! See you on Wednesday!

Leslie said...

Thanks for pinning my dish! I saw this recipe on another link party and meant to comment. We make these every Fall. Almost the exact same recipe! When I first saw yours, I was like NO WAY!!! Too funny! (And yummy) Makes me want to go make some right now! :)

xo, Leslie

The Better Baker said...

Congrats on being featured at Melt in your mouth Monday! These look great. Wonderful tutorial too!!

Cherry said...

Visiting from Melt in Your Mouth Monday - what a fun idea! I will have to try this ...

Kimberly Flack said...

These look super yummy! Can't wait to try them myself! Do you think frozen apples would work with this recipe as well? I have some apples in my freezer that I'd like to use for this recipe! Please let me know what you think! Thanks so much!:-)

Mary ~ said...

Hi Kimberly,

I think they should work fine. Just be sure to let them defrost first, and get them close to room temperature. If they are already baked/cooked apples, reduce your baking time to 15-20 minutes...you don't want apple sauce rolls! :O) If they are uncooked apples, because the apples have been frozen, I would check them a little bit earlier so they don't over bake.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Let me know if you make them, what you think!

Have a great night!

Mary ~ said...

That is too funny! We love them too - I can't seem to make enough for family and friends that were in and out the last 2 weeks.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day/night!

Jen said...

I tried this recipe tonight and it was great. I added walnuts and a little bit of caramel dip to the apple mixture just because I love those with apples. I was amazed at how simple this was and it makes such a beautiful dessert. Thanks for sharing. I am definately going to try the pumpkin rolls as well.

Dena Martin said...

I run a B&B and think this would be great with crepes as a breakfast entree! I will definitely be giving this a try. Might cook the apples a little and add some raisins so I don't have to bake for so long. Crepes can be finicky. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sandra Perri said...

Is it possible to substitute the butter for something else! I am recently a Vegan and have to rethink all the recipes!

DianeG said...

Does your family prefer these soft or crispy? Warm or cold? Just curious what the favorite way has been in your house, since you've made so many batches!

If you want to be really lazy - core your apple stand in centre of wrap fill with alternate layers of raisons,dark brown sugar and butter with butter as top layer. form wrap around apple and turn upside down into baking dish,pour simple syrup of brown sugar, knob of butter and boiling water over top. Cover with foil and cook for 40mins at 180c. serve with double cream or custard.
POW!
