Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

by Tammy Taylor~

Although almost most of our meals are cooked from scratch.  Sometimes off-the-homestead commitments results in me being unprepared for supper. But in all honesty since I use the cook-once, eat-twice method of cooking, I almost always have a main dish in the freezer for such occasions.

So I served thick charcoal-grilled ham slices, steamed carrots with butter & fresh rosemary and a serving of coleslaw.  The grilled ham slices were simply pulled from the freezer & the steamed carrots were remaining from yesterday’s meal and the coleslaw was in the fridge. So a delicious homemade supper was on the table in a flash. But when I take so many shortcuts for one meal I typically try to make a dessert for that handsome man of mine to make up for the meager offerings. It doesn’t help to make a quick supper if dessert takes lots of time.   I still needed a quick dessert option.  Hey, I know, I’ll use some homemade apple pie filling & a few tortillas to make baked apple pie tortilla rolls!

Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls – No Recipe Needed!

Here’s the most beautiful part – there’s really no recipe to follow!  The short version: roll apple pie filling into flour tortillas, drizzle melted butter, sprinkle cinnamon & sugar & bake for about 15-20 minutes.  Yep, it’s really that easy.

 

But here are more specifics. First preheated the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.   I pulled out a jar of my homemade apple pie filling & lightly heated a few tortillas to make them smoother to roll. Then I spooned apple pie filling onto the edge of the tortillas & rolled them up.  They were laid in a small baking pan seam-side down and sprinkled with cinnamon/sugar. Then I poured melted butter all over them and baked them uncovered for 15 minutes. (well, best I could – my oven is glitchy & keeps turning itself off & on…)You can cover them to keep them soft, but I wanted a little texture to the tortillas.  So I left mine uncovered.

They were really good though. A good, quick, delicious spur-of-the-moment dessert with no recipe needed.  I think they would be even more delicious and certainly company-worth with an added dollop of cool whip or Homemade Whipped Cream.

      Me too Cynthia. It works best with the smaller-sized flour tortillas, and I preferred to cut the apple slices in half to make it easier to eat when they were cooked. But this has become RancherMan’s favorite dessert because I can whip it up sans any recipe and it can bake while we’re enjoying supper! ~TMH~

    I wonder if you could use canned cherry pie filling? I have that on my pantry shelf. If I try it, I’ll let you know. You do have great ideas. I still like the idea of being your neighbor for sampling your leftover goodies. Oh no I forgot you live in Texas. I tried that once!!!

      I’d think you could absolutely do this with cherry pie filling Sondra. Not sure what you’d sprinkle on top – maybe just omit the cinnamon? I plan to give cherry pie filling and also maybe blueberry pie filling a try soon, I’ll be sure to share how we liked it! ~TMH~

      I like to bake ’em uncovered for a little crisp texture on the edges Ken, but you can cover them for a softer version too. BTW – only got to 35 degrees here this morning, but the uncovered garden plants didn’t fare well… (shoulda / coulda / woulda) 🙁 ~TMH~
