FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I prefer the Granny Smith variety of apple for this recipe. Green apples hold up well in baking. With apple desserts, you want a tart apple so that it balances well with the sweetness of the rest of the recipe. Some other apples you can use are Jonagold, Gala, Golden Delicious and Fuji.
Of course. You could pretty much use any of your favorite pie fillings with this recipe.
No. If you are more of a wheat person this would still go very good with that. But I wouldn’t stray to far away from wheat for this recipe as it will not taste the same.
When making the apple pie filling, you want to make sure that it isn’t too thin, otherwise it will leak out of the roll ups. So, make sure you whisk the cornstarch in really well, then let the sauce simmer for 4-8 minutes until it thickens to the point where it will hold the apples when poured over the bread. It should be spreadable, but not so thin that it runs.
Placed in an airtight container these will keep at room temperature for 2-3 days and in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)
- brown sugar
- maple syrup
- caramel syrup
- lemon juice
- sandwich bread
- granulated sugar
- salted butter
HOW TO MAKE BAKED APPLE PIE ROLLUPS:
To create the apple pie filling, put a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour the water, brown sugar, maple syrup, caramel syrup, lemon juice and cornstarch into the saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil and then turn the heat down to a simmer to let reduce, stirring occasionally.
Once the sauce has thickened, toss in the apples and let cook for about another 5 minutes before removing from heat. Set aside for now. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside for now.
Remove the crust from each of the sandwich bread slices and then roll them out with a rolling pin. Make them as flat as you can.
Scoop about 2 Tablespoons of the apple pie filling onto each bread slice.
Roll them up and set them aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the granulated white sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until everything is evenly combined.
Using a pastry brush, coat the melted butter onto each roll up.
Then roll them into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Make sure they are well coated.
Once all the rollups are coated, transfer them to the baking pan and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Serve warm with favorite toppings and syrup (optional).

Apple Pie Filling:
For the apple pie filling:
- In a medium sauce pan over medium high heat, pour in 6 Tablespoons water, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon maple syrup, 1 Tablespoon caramel syrup, 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice, and 1 Tablespoon cornstarch. Whisk together well and then bring the sauce to a boil then turn the heat down to a simmer to let reduce, whisking occasionally.
- Once the sauce has thickened, toss in 2 large Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and diced) and let cook for another 5 minutes before removing from heat. You want them to just slightly soften but still have a slight crunch. Set aside for now.
- Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

- Try and use fresh lemon juice. Bottled lemon juice has a very fake taste and can throw off the apple flavor.
- Use your favorite baking apple that is on the tart side, we like Granny Smith.
- You can use wheat bread instead of white if you’d like.
