Inspiration Cafe # - Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Welcome to Inspiration Cafe!  
It's me, Mary, once again, 
from Sweet Little Bluebird!

I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!

Today I'm sharing a fun fall recipe that 
was a major hit in our house ~

Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Tortillas make a great replacement for those who are not
fans of traditional pie crust... like my girls.

Here's how to make this yummy fall treat:

8 Flour Tortillas (I use Large Size Tortillas)
6 Medium Size Tart Apples, Peeled and Sliced/Diced (I use Granny Smith)
1 1/2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 
Dash of Nutmeg (about 1/8 teaspoon - optional)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

*Cinnamon Sugar Recipe
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Stir sugar and cinnamon together until well blended.

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.  Butter (grease) a 9X13 baking dish.  Next, combined all of the ingredients above with the sliced/diced apples, making sure the apples are coated well. Place a 1/2 cup of the apple mixture and spread in the center of a tortilla.  Roll the tortilla and place in pan, seam down.  Repeat 7 more times.  Note, You may only be able to fit 7 rolls in your pan.  Once rolls are in pan, lightly brush with melted butter and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, making sure to sprinkle in between each roll on their sides. Cover with foil and bake on middle rack of oven for 40-50 minutes. Bake until apples reach desired texture. Once done, remove and enjoy hot or cold! This treat is great served warm with vanilla ice cream!  

*For an easier version, you can use canned apple pie filling {I use Duncan Hines®}.  Simply decrease baking time to 15- 20 minutes, following the same directions above.

Thanks so much for stopping by Inspiration Cafe!
We hope to see you again next Monday!

Cheers ~ Mary


  1. Danni, I absolutely love pie crust (actually I prefer the pie crust over the contents of the pie) but I'm a big fan of tortillas also, and I have to say this sounds delicious, plus super simple! Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Oh this looks so easy to make, I hate making pie crusts, too much mucking around.. Lower in fat as well

  3. This looks very tasty! Thanks, Dani, for stopping by yesterday and leaving me some comment love on my fall mantle post. Hope you have a great Labor Day!

  4. What a great Fall treat! I bet this would be so good with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream! Pinned it!

  5. Danni - thank you very much with your comment about being a no reply blogger - I fossicked around in settings to see if I could change it but couldn't find anything. Can you give me a lead on where to look? If I can solve this I might post a guide about it on my blog tips sub blog since I imagine I'm not the only one! Cheers

  6. Oh my goodness. Those look delicious. I wonder if I could do a take on these and make them healthy for me hahah :-)! <3.

  7. I'm going to be making these soon! Buying some supplies when I go to the store ;) I think I may opt for the canned filling for the first time. These look so yummy!

  8. oh yum!!!! can you send me some please?! looks fabulous!

  9. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh. Thank you so much for this recipe. We have a local taco joint that sells something similar, but I always wanted to make them at home and didn't know where to start. I can't wait to make these once the weather cools down and I can turn on the oven.

  10. Dani,
    Thanks so much for stopping by Posed Perfection today and leaving me the sweet comment about the Souped Up Stroganoff. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does. Have a great week!

  11. It looks delicious! Mmmmmm, I can smell the cinnamon apples from here! This is like a yummy version of apple strudel, but easier to make.

  12. Yum! Those looks delicious. My daughter isn't a big pie crust fan either but I bet she would like these.

  13. Looks yummy! Pinning for later :)
