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.
