Baked Apple Pie Roll Ups are super simple to put together with just a few ingredients you likely already have on hand. I love that these are oven baked and not fried and take just minutes to make!

While I used apple pie filling, you can fill them with whatever you’d like including cream cheese & sugar or cherry pie filling.

If you’re in a hurry you can certainly use canned apple pie filling but if you’ve got a few minutes you can quickly make your own! I’ve added my own homemade apple pie filling recipe to the site!  This easy recipe is made on the stove top and makes the equivalent of one store bought can of pie filling!

My daughter loves these and we make them often because they’re so quick and easy.

When placing your roll ups on your pan, be sure the have the seam side down.  Once they come out of the oven if you notice the shape is a little bit flat, you can just give them a gentle squeeze while they’re warm and they will hold their shape as they cool.  We serve these as is or with ice cream and caramel.

Ingredients:

  • 10 slices white bread
  • 1 can apple pie filling (or homemade pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the crusts off your bread and roll each slice flat with a rolling pin. Combine cinnamon and sugar on a small plate.
  3. Pour the apple pie filling onto a plate and chop it so the pieces are smaller. Place 2 tablespoons apple pie filling on each slice of bread and roll up.
  4. Dip each roll into melted butter (I poured a tiny bit of butter into a “butter dish” and just rolled in there) and then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
  5. Place seam side down on a parchment lined pan and bake 15 minutes or until browned and crispy. Serve warm.

  3. Oh my gosh! These were soooo heavenly! Super quick and easy to make with great flavour. I didn’t have any apples so I substituted a variety of other fillings – apple and cranberry sauce; chocolate; and apple jam. I did run short of the melted butter though. A delicious receipe – thank you.

  4. I find it too sweet. I will try again without sugar after rolling it up.

  5. I just made them and I used canned peaches. Diced and rained the juice out and added cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. They came out great. I made like 15 of them and used the left over bread crust and peaches for a mini peach bread pudding.

  6. I made these using BlackBerry pie filling and they came out terrible. Very soggy .. Will not make them again.

  7. These Baked Apple Pie Roll Ups sound delicious!!! I cannot wait to try them, in the not too near future i am going to be getting together with a good friend of mine and I want to make them. I wonder if crushed up walnuts or other nuts added to the cinnamon mixture would be tasty…hmmmm after i make them like this recipe calls for i want to try that and maybe add dried cranberries, or raisins or figs to the apple mixture.

  8. I have other tried it yet but you can tell it’s a winner! Thank you much!

    I love them.

  17. THANKS FOR SHARING I LOVE APPLES !!!
    ((( GOD BLESS )))

  18. Awesome recipe..i modified it with using brown bread and jaggery in palce of sugar while cooking apples and avoided cornstrach ..taste is so addictive…i loved it..thanks

  19. I was searching good recipe for apples sitting in my fridge and met with your recipe…great idea and great recipe..i modified some things,i used brown bread and used jaggery instead of sugar while cooking apples..everyone just loved the taste ,.thanks

  20. I love these. But I don’t cut off the crust. I think the crust makes them so crunchier.

  21. Dear Holly, I’m new to your blog? I have just gotten into your recipes. I want to try them all!, but I can’t keep up with them. I have a life long friend that has no computer. SHe would like to know if you have a cookbook with all these wonderful recipes. We are both in our twilight years but still enjoy baking.Your simple recipes make this easier for us to keep doing.

  22. Holly, thank you for a neat idea!

  23. I made these a month or so ago for myself and my neighbors. We all loved them. They are so delicious! I made these with your homemade Apple Pie filling- it’s 100% better than canned and easy to whip up. The only thing I changed was using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls which came out perfect. Thanks for sharing Holly!

  24. I made the roll-ups this last weekend. They were great! They went so fast I wished I had made a double recipe. I also made the homemade pie filling so good and so easy

  25. Excellent,quick & tastes great!

  26. I use to make these for my kids when they came home from school.I used one of them grilled cheese makers to cook mine.

  27. Hello thank you for your apple pie roll ups…I made them last night and yes they’re gone…my husband doesn’t like apple pie and he asked me to make them again tonight…your recipe has made him a fan…they are so good…so thanks again for sharing your recipe!
    Connie

  28. Love to learn

  29. Looks divine !! I read all the posts and watched the video, For those who want this to make with little kids and thought or found that it was to messy or had issues with the butter and sugar dipping here is a little suggestion ……..

    After slicing the crust off, butter one side with a knife then sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mix on a piece of waxed paper, place the buttered side down onto the sugar mix then roll the bread flat with the rolling pin, fill and roll up and place in pan and bake.

  30. I love apples. Now I have two more to try. Thank you.
    Theresa Smith.

  31. I was wondering instead of bread if biscuits would work as well, just roll them out like you would bread and then use real apples instead of canned apple.

  32. Oh these look so easy and DIVINE!! Will be making them soon with the kids–I can’t wait!

  33. These look amazing, and dangerously too easy to make ;)

  34. This will be a problem for my skinny jeans.

  35. Exceptionally good looking dessert you have there. I love the roll up idea and beautiful pictures. Thanks.

  36. I LOVE the idea of using small flour tortillas instead of white bread. We don’t buy white bread either …. GREAT IDEA ….. thanks

  37. Loved this site

  38. Love the recipes I have seen

  39. I am going to try the apple pie roll ups using raisin cinnamon bread, will let you know how it turns out. Look delicious.

  40. can i substitute the white bread for wheat bread to make it a little more healthy?

  41. I’d really like to make tigers for my hubs & myself but we wouldn’t be able to eat them all at once. Can they be stored in fridge? And any suggestion on reheating them? Thank you!
    Donna

    • They will keep about 1 day in the fridge. You could certainly just make a few at a time and store the extra pie filling in the fridge until you’d like to make a few more.

  42. I made these by taking Grands buttermilk biscuits, cutting them in half and then rolling them out and filling. It made for a nice, flaky bite!

  43. can i use wheat bread or a different kind of bread?

  44. These were easy and quite enjoyable! Thank you for a quick dessert idea!

  45. The baked. Apple Pie looks toooooo good. I’m gonna. Try n make it healthier using wheat bread ń rolled oats sprinkling…. My mouth is already watering

  46. do you make your sugar and cinnamon with normal or caster sugar.

  47. What a fun idea for an afternoon snack for the little ones or your working at home husband!

  48. I’ve made roll ups before but never like this! total yum!!

  49. Great dessert idea, easy and delicious!

  50. Pshhh forget my lunch — I want these!

  51. I’m a sucker when it comes to apple desserts—and these roll ups are so easy and irresistible!!

  52. I cut the roll ups in half before rolling in butter and cinnamon sugar. I also made these and set them in the fridge overnight and baked them off the next morning, they turned out great. My husband said they were the best thing I have ever made. Thanks for the great recipe!

  53. These turned out amazing! Thank you for sharing!!!

  54. This is a great idea, this looks soooo good, pinning this one!

  55. Has anyone tried with a frozen pie crust?

  56. U can use flour tortillas and it’s called Apple enchiladas they r really awesome!!

  57. I just made them at the office…yes I;m spoiled and have a kitchen at work LOL I made 1 batch with apple pie filling and another batch with pumpkin pie filling YUMMMMMM

  58. I made these with oatmeal bread. They were great!

  59. I just made these. they were a bit messier then the directions. but so yummy. I also only used about 1 tbsp as 2 would have been to much to roll. came out delicious. at 15 minutes the edges were crispy and the centers were soft. im gonna try keeping them in for a few more minutes for a bit more crisp.
    happy baking enjoy

  60. i put the apple pie filling in a bowl and mashed them with a potato masher, much easier than chopping them up!

  61. These were great! I made the apple pie filling as well which was tasty. I suggest you add to your baking instructions that you should flip the rolls over about half way thru. I cooked mine for 20 minutes waiting for the top to brown and I finally decided to flip them over but the bottoms of a few had already been a little burnt :(. I cooked them on the other side for about 7 more minutes.

  62. Great desert, Parents made this for years camping, while sitting out at campfire 11:00pm looking for a treat. Used the long handle irons still available, but could only make one or two at a time. Nice to bring back memories and take it inside.

  63. I am always looking for new recipes to adapt to campfire & I think this one may be a winner!
    We do a lot of camping & cooking on the open fire, love the clean, it’s easy!
    Thinking they could be done in a box oven with the kids outdoors, it’s all about the experiment!

  64. These look delicious! Love the suggestion in the comments of using tortillas too, might have to experiment!

  65. So could you use some type of canned dough such as the biscuits or crescent rolls instead? And use a high quality of store bought pie feeling for these and still taste great?

    • You can but the consistency of the dough is much softer. Still delicious though!

    • I agree that the crescent roll probably would not work but here’s a suggestion for the crescent dough, I put a small wedge of cream cheese, raspberry filling or jam & a few chocolate chips in the crescent & bake….good! Chocolate Raspberry Cream Cheese Crescents ….YUMMY! I think I will put those ingredients on my shopping list this weekend!

  66. We have a dairy allergy in my house what could I use instead of butter to roll them in?

  67. can this be made with bannanas and cinn and sugar

  68. These sound wonderful! The recipe has gone into my recipe file. I am planning on sharing this on Celebrate and Decorate on Monday. Visitors will have to click over to your blog to get the recipe. I hope that helps a lot of folks discover your wonderful blog.

  69. Thanks for this great recipe. Your recipe is featured as a favorite by a host. Thanks for linking up to Tell Me About It Tuesday.

  70. try using pre made pizza dough.. just sprinkle sugar/cinn mix and spread over apple mix. roll up and cover with a little cookins spray and spitnkle the rest of the sugar/cinn mix over it

  71. Delicious apple pie roll ups, thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul blog hop. Pinning it.

  72. oh my gosh I have to make these. Thanks for linking up at Tell Me About It Tuesday. We hope you hop over and share with us again next week.

  73. Oh WOW! Yum!! And so easy! Thank you bunches for linking up and partying with us this week, Holly! Pinning this!

  74. I’d Like to make my own filling as my family don’t like things too sweet, roughly how big is the can you use, and do you finish the whole thing? Can’t wait to try these!!

  75. Why not use Grands or any other pre-made dough? Or Philo dough!

  76. That is an awesome idea!! And it looks amazing delicious!!

  77. These are AWESOME!!! make them all the time. keep up the great work!

  78. Tks for this recipe, it’s low cost and kid making friendly and can be made in under 30 mins ! :)

  79. I make this at school with my second graders when we talk about George Washington chopping down the cherry tree. I flatten the bread, smear with chopped cherry pie filling, and fold the bread in half. Then I butter one side (sprinkling with cinnamon sugar) and fry in an electric skillet. Then do the same on the other side. Each child gets to flatten and spread the filling, then butter and sprinkle one side before I fry them. We love them! Great cooking treat for kids!

  80. What did you use in place of the cinnamon sugar on the outside if using different fruit as in cherry, blueberry, peach, apricot.

  81. Our daughter made these for us to have when we went to her house for coffee. They were delicious! I asked her to send me the site and I’m a fan now of Spend With Pennies. I will make these at home. They are so easy and they look great. She used the bread. I’ve had the ones in tortillas but I really prefer this recipe with the bread.

  82. Has anybody done this with gluten free bread or tortillas?

    • I have made them using various different makes of GLUTEN FREE bread…. Apart from they fell apart when preparing them (but that’s the nature of the bread!) and was a bit messy…..they tasted WONDERFUL!! My husband loves them. It’s great to find something that can be adapted.. And taste good too… THANKS Holly :)

  83. Used up some stale bread AND was the benefactor of hero worship all day! Made both bread and tortillas since I had some that only had a couple days of life left. Filling was a can of diced apple and cranberry, substituted melted (slightly salted with powdered popcorn butter) butter flavored crisco due to my lack of actual butter…I was little leary of margarine watering it down and making them soggy. They were crisp and flaky. Drizzled with heated caramel using a piping bag. They were great, and it was a fabulous way to use older items…even threw the crusts out to the birds
    Thank you for another delicious, easy and inexpensive treat.

  84. i think that with guava and cream cheese it would be to die for !!!

  85. if u really want carmel get can sweeten condensed milk eagle brand or cheaper brand put it in pot and make sure the can is in water at all time and boil it for 3 hrs do not take lid off i make this for my turtles and other stuff really good and its cheaper than buying bags of carmel

  86. dear admim,
    would you like to give recipe apple pie filling?
    thank you

  87. I just made these. I used blueberry pie filling, I also used a mixture of 8 oz. cream cheese, blended with 4 tbl. powdered sugar. I spread the cram cheese on the bread, then a heaping tsp. of pie filling. Yum!! I also used whole grain white bread. Will make often!
    I made 10, and have extra ingredients to make more another day, kind of messy to put together, but very tasty!

  88. This looks like a delicious dessert that could be used for brunch or afternoon meetings.
    Will definitely try.

  89. *Excellent alternative filling: using cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk. Blend well and spread thinly and roll up bread. *I cut the logs into 3 small pieces, THEN roll them in melted butter and powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Can even FREEZE on a cookie sheet, then put them in a ziplock bag for when you are ready to bake them. Bake, then dip in sour cream..using toothpicks :) ps a SOFT wheat bread would work fine as well. **Tortillas dont absorb the butter..and for this, you want the bread…

    • That sounds wonderful Patti! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • My sister just gave this recipe called French Toast Roll-ups. (I.e; beat together until smooth–1 -8 ounce pkg. of cream cheese, I egg yolk, and 1/4 cup sugar. Cream those ingredients together.
      1 loaf of white sandwhich bread, crusts removed and rolled out with rolling pin. Spread cream cheese mixture on bread, roll up then brush on melted butter, and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture (3/4 cup sugar, 1TBS cinnamon). Place on cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, you can put in zip lock bag and keep frozen for up to 2 months. Just before serving heat oven to 400 degrees and bake bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Delicious. I served them at church last Sunday and they were a hit.

  90. Anyone had them last long enough to know how they might go as a lunchbox snack? Store in fridge? Freezer?

  91. Omg I just finished baking these and they are SO good (y)

  92. Holly have you got a melt in the mouth crust for sauchage rolls please

    • I personally do not. You would need a great puff pastry recipe. You can buy puff pastry at the store or you can do a google search for a good recipe.

  93. This is one of the fastest dessert. I have made it with white bread like the recipe calls for . And I have made with flour tortillas booth are great

  94. I wonder how this would be if you used refrigerated pie crust… cut in squares or circles…. and I would use a pastry brush for butter or better yet a butter flavored spray and sugar free pie filling… hmmmmmmmm

  95. hi, can sugar be substituted with brown sugar ??

  96. I would also know if anyone made them ahead of time without freezing them-can you refrigerate them for a day and bake them the next day or do they get too soggy?

  97. Can these be made the night before and refrigerated with out getting soggy?

  98. Sounds perfect for after spending the afternoon outside tobogganing with my grandchildren, served with hot chocolate.

  99. Been doing this for years with ready made pie crusts like Pillsbury. The kind you buy in the box. I like it better than the bread slices. And, you can make them longer and fork the edges. Cherry, blueberry, and peach works just as well.

    • With the ready made pie crust, how long did you cook them? Also, what size did you cut the dough for each one?
      I want to make these with pie dough for Sunday School this coming week.

      • why are so many people changing this recipe? first it’s a multi entry discussion on caramel, now everyone is chiming in about how to change this recipe! why not try it the way she wrote and leave a nice comment?

  100. yummmmy cant wait to make these with my kids they love apple pie and these will be so easy to make.

  101. baked apple pie rools ups… hw to make apple fillings if readily is not available?

    • cut about 6-10 apples into chunks sprinkle about a 1- 1& 1/2 cups of sugar and about 1 tblsp of cinnamon over apple chunks and stir untill each chunk is coated with sugar and cinnamon for a yummy homeade apple pie filling

  102. why couldn’t you just use pie dough? although the crescent rolls would work too… I just can’t see the bread working that well

    • It works beautifully and gets nice and crispy on the outside. I’m sure pie dough would work too. The bread holds it’s shape nicely and you would never know it’s bread. :)

  103. Was just wondering if premade pie crust would work? Not a bread eater but have pie crust leftover from the holidays.

  104. What do you think about using pie crust or puff pastry then deep fry?

    • I think they’re delicious that way too! I have a recipe very similar (Apple Pie Egg Rolls) that is deep fried! Those were delicious too but some readers were looking for a baked version. I wasn’t satisfied with the way the egg roll wrappers baked up so I used the bread instead for the baked version.

  105. These look wonderful. Can not wait to try. I am a diabetic so I can also use no sugar added apple pie filling.

  106. Has anyone tried making these ahead and freezing? If so, how did they do?

    • I have frozen them , in fact I did a whole loaf and froze both cookie sheets full and took one out for a church brunch and cooked and they are great , will cook rest Christmas morning. !

      • Awesome! Thanks for sharing Peggy!

      • For those who make in advance and freeze for later, can you please clarify if you freeze before you bake them or after? And if after, how do you reheat? thanks!

      • I know I’m coming in really late on this conversation but would love clarity on the freezing as well. I plan on making a good many of these because they are freezable so knowing what I’m doing, without having to waste any because I got it wrong would be really awesome. Thanks!

      • Do u freeze them already cooked or not cooked

    • YES YOU CAN FREEZE THEM IN LAYERS AND TAKE OUT WHAT YO WANT. I HAVE EVEN FRIED THEM IN CAST IRON AND USE ANY FILLING YOU LIKE. ALSO YOU CAN USE BISCUITS TO MAKE THESE AND THEY ARE ALSO GOOD THAT WAY. I JUST COOKED SOME APPLES DOWN AND THICKENED WAS GOING TO MAKE A PIE BUT I HAVE WHEAT BREAD AND THATS WHAT IM GOING TO USE. GIVE IT A TRY AND ENJOY.

  107. Alicia, try WonTon wrappers. My daughter has made these with them but she did deep fry them. Not sure how they will taste baked.

    • I have baked these in wonton wrappers and they came out fantastic!

      • I did the wonton wrappers , fried they were to die for and bet they would be good baked too just pour butter over them I add walnuts to mine with a little cinnamon inside. I am making tomorrow can’t wait .

  108. Sound wonderful

  109. I think these sound good also that they are economical and that most people have the ingredients on hand.

  110. Alicia – a little off topic, but like you I love most anything cinnamon. Have you tried the Taco Bell Cinnabon Delights? Habit forming and oh so good.

  111. Use kitchen shears, Tom

  112. The “cut up the Apple Pie filling” step is the only thing that keeps this from being simple enough for the kids to make, so I’m wondering what the same thing might be like using Pumpkin Pie filling (or even PB&J)?

  113. Made these just before supper. While we ate, I popped them in the oven. So when supper was cleared up these were just warm enough to slightly melt the french vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel syrup! Needless to say I was a HIT!!!! Even impressed the in-laws! SCORE!

    • sounds really good with the ice cream and caramel syrup

    • Now we’re talkin!.
      It would seem tortillas would be kind of chewy. We been getting some white bread from Costco that seems a bit under cooked to us, that I think would work perfectly for this recipe.

      The combo of butter, bread, brown sugar and cinnamon has got to be good. It would seem whipped cream woujld be good once they cool I’m thinking.

  114. I have made these before but I used flour tortillas. No waste.

  115. i bet u could use crescent rolls dough or even pie crust that are the roll out kind u buy in refrigerated isle

  116. I wonder what it would taste like with wheat bread. We don’t eat a lot of bread but when we do, it is wheat. If anyone tries this, I would be curious to hear what you think.

  117. I tried it with tortillas, but I didn’t care for them and neither did my husband. Would love to know if anyone else tries them. I love cinnamon anything usually!

  118. Couldn’t you do the same thing with thin small flour tortillas? We don’t buy white bread and I think the tortillas would be just as easy and get the same effect.

    • I haven’t tried it but sounds like a great idea! If you do try, I’d love to hear how it works out!

    • I made this with flour tortillas and they were wonderful…..I put them in a glass baking dish and aked them together and about 15 minutes before they were done I made a carmel sauce and poured over them and finish baking….they were gone before anyone could get seconds….please try them they are to die for

      • I’ve made a simple Carmel recipe and it’s good! Take a can of sweet condensed milk eagle brand put the can unopened in a small crockpot cover with water on low for 6 to 8 hours!! That’s the best way to make Carmel no mess!!

        • Caramel out of sweetened condensed milk? Never heard of it. I don’t understand how it could taste like carmel. In light me!lol!

          • It totally works – I’ve been doing this for years. I’ve only used eagle brand. Pour it on a pound cake for the best caramel cake you’ll ever have. Here’s the link to more info. http://www.eaglebrand.com/recipes/details/?RecipeId=4002

          • eagle brand or generic sweetened condensed milk are high in sugar… boiling the can causes the sugars in it to caramelize…

          • Its wonderful! In Puerto Rico we call it Dulce de Leche

          • Actually it doesn’t really taste like caramel sauce. IMHO it tastes a bit odd. I did the boil in the can thing and didn’t like it at all. A bit chalky tasting. Maybe it would do in a pinch if one was too lazy to make a proper caramel sauce, but then there is no accounting for taste, especially other people’s.

          • YES it does carmelize beautifully and I have done it many times. Just like DULCE DE LECHE. I HAVE BOUGHT THE DDL AND SAME AS BOILING IT. ITS AWESOMEEEEEEEE

          • I have done this for years when making Easter or holiday candies. It tastes exactly like bagged carmels! I do a few cans at a time.

          • I have also been doing this for years and it is the best caramel you will ever eat….hands down. You do need to be careful and totally wait until the can cools before opening it. If you think about it, condensed milk is milk and sugar….perfect combo for caramel. Enjoy.

          • I made caramel out of the condensed milk by placing the can in a pan covered with water and kept it boiling for 4 hours and it was the best caramel I have ever tasted! I think I will try it with the crock pot since that sounds a lot easier. Try it and then enjoy your luscious, creamy fantastic caramel.

          • My mother used to make caramel that way. Thanks for reminding me.

          • they call this dulce de leche, its not exactly a true caramel, but a decent subsitutuon

          • Before one could buy tins of caramel (I’m talking the 1950’s), our moms used to boil a can of condensed milk for 4 hours. I thought it was magic that one could open a can and have this lovely stuff ready to eat; put in a pie shell with slices of banana and whipped cream, it was a lovely treat.

          • First it’s enlighten me ;-) lol , second, the sugars & milk cook down making a velvety caramel sauce. Not so much like caramel u would put on an apple on a stick, more like something u would pour over ice cream or use as a cake filling. Is very good! Don’t even have to open the can until it’s cooked! ;-) Easy caramel sauce. Condensed milk is a wonderful thing!

          • You can pretty much use any kind of sweetend condensed milk. Just make sure you take the labels off and cover the can with completely with water. You can also put a dish cloth in the bottom of the crock and set the cans on top so that the metal doesnt leave a ring on the bottom of the crock. tastes a lot like the ice cream caramel topping that you can buy at the store.

          • I’m guessing JJ used evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. The connection between SCM and caramel is quite obvious.

          • It’s soooooo good!!! Best thing ever! Put the can in a pot of boiling water for 2 hours … making sure it’s totally submerged.. then let it cool and open

          • This is fantastic caramel. Just make sure it is cold when you open the can as it is boiling hot and may explode.

          • I’ve been doing this for years to primarily make caramel pies. It is a very rich caramel.

        • This really does work. But 30 yrs ago, I would put unopened can in pressure cooker. Water covering 1/2 of can, pressure at 10 lbs. for 1 hour. Cool then open can like cranberry sauce. Then slice into rings. Use for dessert. Or can spoon out. It is the yummiest caramel ever. Because of the zip top opening, I don’t believe I would use pressure cooker. I will use boiling in pan for 4 hrs.

        • My husband makes this all the time. He just eats it right out of the can. Put it in the freezer after you cook it. Just make sure that there is always water in the pot to cover can, because it will explode.

        • Just try it! It work! Best Caramel auce you have ever had.

    • Why not try cinnamon raison bread slices—lot more flavor!!

    • I am sure you can try it with a tortilla. This is actually an old time recipe. I have it from my dear aunt who passed away 32 years ago. You can also use different fillings. The bread was used instead of having to make a dough.

    • I want to try you recipe, have one question. can I use my own recipe for the apple in Lou of can apple.

    • I make something similar using tortillas all the time! Super easy ~ I make my own apple pie filling, put a Tbsp. or so in middle of small tortilla, and fold up envelope-style. I put them on my stoneware baking sheet, spread the tops with some melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top. Bake at 350 for 20 min. or so. Delicious!

    • I used to buy a tortilla rolled around apple pie filling from Schwans home delivery. they were basically the same thing except deep fried.

    • You can use tortillas… we in Texas do it all the time, roll them up in a pan like enchiladas and bake…. YUMMY!

    • wanton wrappers would probably work

    • I don’t buy bread, and only make wheat bread. Your idea of flour tortillas is a great one. I think I’ll try it with small flour tortillas.

      • I think whole wheat bread would give a nutty flavor to the recipe. It does in pie crust. You could also use whole wheat tortillas.

    • I have made these for years with flour tortillas and they are great!
