When you need a quick dessert, these baked apple pie tortilla rolls are fast and absolutely delicious.
And here’s the kicker – there’s no recipe needed. Yep, they’re really that easy to make! Check it out.
A Simple Meal Deserves Dessert!
Almost all of our meals are cooked from scratch. But sometimes off-the-homestead commitments result in me being unprepared for supper.
However 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. That way a delicious homemade supper can be on the table fast.
And really, isn’t that always the goal??
So on this day 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 already 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 simple offerings.
But ya know, it doesn’t help to make a quick supper if dessert takes lots of time. I still needed a quick dessert option, y’all.
Hey, I know, I’ll use some homemade apple pie filling & a few tortillas to make baked apple pie tortilla rolls!
Y’all are not gonna believe how simple this is, yet it’s delicious.
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
- Sprinkle cinnamon & sugar
- Drizzle with melted butter
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes
Yep, it’s really that easy!
But here are more specifics. First I preheated the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then I pulled out a jar of my homemade apple pie filling & a few lightly-heated tortillas. Heating them quickly in the microwave made them much easier to roll.
I spooned apple pie filling onto the edge of the tortillas & rolled them up. They were laid in a small baking pan with the seam side down. To top them I sprinkled a little cinnamon/sugar mixture on them.
Then I poured melted butter all over them and baked them uncovered for 15 minutes.
If you want to keep them soft end-to-end you can cover them. But I wanted a little texture to the end of the tortillas. So I left mine uncovered.
They were really good though. A simple, quick, delicious spur-of-the-moment dessert with no recipe needed.
And c’mon, who wouldn’t love that? No pulling out a recipe book or dealing with measuring spoons, several ingredients and such. Just assemble it and bake! Sometimes the simplest things really are the best.
I think they would be even more delicious and certainly company-worthy with an added dollop of cool whip or Homemade Whipped Cream.

Love how simple this is. Will have to give it a try.
My grandkids are going to LOOOOVE to make these…..I am going to LOOOOOVE to eat them….LOL!!!
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! ~TxH~
Doing this today. Thanks, you always have such great ideas.
This is going to happen today! Regards
BTW. 31 here this morning.
