Last-Minute Dessert: Cherry Pie Tortilla Rolls

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

If you’ve got a can of cherry pie filling and some flour tortillas, you’ve got dessert! Cherry pie tortilla rolls are simple and delicious as they are. Or you can add a dollop of whipped cream for a little sumpin’ sumpin’ extra.

Cherry Pie Tortilla Rolls. A quick & easy company-worthy dessert that doesn't even require a recipe! Flour Tortillas & cherry pie filling #TexasHomesteader

I’ve made Apple Pie Rolls using some of my home-canned Apple Pie Filling. It’s delicious!

Apple pie tortilla rolls just need flour tortillas, a few spoonsful of apple pie filling, maybe some melted butter drizzled and some cinnamon/sugar. Delicious! #TexasHomesteader

But now I’m thinking about cherry pie tortilla rolls…

Dessert For Unexpected Company

RancherMan & I don’t always eat dessert, but when we do it’s usually something quick & easy. I’ve simply cut berries in a bowl and topped with quick homemade honey-sweetened Whipped Cream. 

Or enjoyed our healthier version of ‘ice cream‘ that uses frozen bananas and berries.

Or even whipped up a quick chocolate pudding. All delicious, all quick & easy.

But when unexpected company comes, I want something that’s a little different (but still easy ’cause, you know, I’m a lazy cook!) 

The quick-read version of Cherry Pie Tortilla Rolls:

      • Spoon cherry pie filling into flour tortillas,

      • roll tightly,

      • place in baking dish,

      • bake 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. 

      • DONE!

Assembling Cherry Pie Tortilla Rolls

Making these cherry pie rollups are about as easy as it gets. First I whipped up my homemade cherry pie filling because it’s quick & easy & I had all the ingredients.

But you can totally use a can of commercial cherry pie filling to make it even quicker & easier! Whatever you’ve got works here.

Assembling Cherry Pie Tortilla Rolls

Now I pull out a few flour tortillas and heat them lightly in the microwave to make them easier to roll. 

I put a couple of spoonsful of cherry pie filling along the length of each tortilla & roll it up tight. Then I place each one seam-down in a small baking dish.

When they’re all assembled I drizzle some melted butter and a sprinkling of sugar on top of all of them. I just like the finish this gives ’em but it’s totally optional.

Now all that’s left is to toss ’em in the oven that’s been heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It doesn’t take long, I bake them for only about 10-15 minutes.

If you want to keep the edges soft you can cover them, but RancherMan prefers the edges to be lightly crunchy. So when I make these I always leave the baking dish uncovered.

Topping The Tortilla Rolls

When I remove them from the oven they smell divine. Sometimes I’ll top them with a little more cherry pie filling, some honey-sweetened whipped cream or even CoolWhip.

Mama always says “presentation is half the dish!” And mama’s always right.

Dessert in a flash. Done & done!

    The cream cheese melts but doesn’t melt out. Of course the blinly are still warm so they era just in a warm oven long enough for me to prepare the rest of them

    I have a friend from the Ukraine and she taught me how to make blinly (kind of crepe-ish pancakes) and I do much the same thing with them. I have put cream cheese in with the fruit and they were very good.

      I’d wondered if the cream cheese would just melt away when baking, Nancy. But apparently not. Thanks for letting us know! ~TxH~

    That looks easy and yummy! I wonder how it would be to make a cream cheese filling for inside with the cherry pie filling over the top? Thanks for the idea.

      I’d never tried cream cheese before Shelley and wondered if the cream cheese would just melt out when baking. But according to Nancy, apparently not! ~TxH~

    I am sooooo trying this, maybe for a ‘grub Sunday’ at church. You are such a genius.

      LOL Evelyn! These are very tasty and you KNOW I’m gonna be all over something that’s tasty, easy and doesn’t even require a recipe! Give ’em a try! ~TxH~

    The look divine and such an easy and quick dessert. Nice thing about this; can use any flavor of canned fruit filling and make a variety of fruit flavor roll-ups if having large crowd.
    Thanks Tammy

      It’s pretty flexible Colleen, and to me they make an interesting presentation also. Mama always says “Presentation is half the meal” and you know mama’s always right! ~TxH~
