Baked Apple Pie Roll-Ups

Apple pie is usually right at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to favorite desserts. My household is no exception. Everyone loves their apple pie, especially me!

However, as anyone who’s ever made a homemade apple pie can tell you, it’s a lot of hard work. This is why I love these Apple Pie Roll-Ups. 

With Apple Pie Roll-Ups, you get the same classic apple pie flavors, but with much less work. These gooey, apple-filled desserts are ready in just 30 minutes from start to finish.

They make for a delicious breakfast or apple pie baked dessert, served with a scoop of my homemade no-churn ice cream or drizzled with icing.

Ingredients/Shopping List

  • 12 slices cinnamon swirl bread 
  • 1 (21 ounces) can apple pie filling
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg 
  • 6 Tablespoons (¾ stick) salted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Variations / Options / Add-ins

  • FILLING: Feel free to switch up the flavors of filling you use inside of these! You could use anything from cherry or blackberry to peaches or pumpkin pie filling. 
  • CINNAMON SWIRL BREAD: You can easily use normal sandwich bread for this recipe, but the cinnamon swirl adds a nice little cinnamon punch! However, if you use normal bread, you can add a little more filling. You can also substitute a gluten free or egg free bread if you are meeting certain dietary restrictions.
  • SALTED BUTTER: I prefer salted butter over unsalted butter for this recipe so that it helps cut through all the sugar, but you can use unsalted if you want. 
  • ICING DRIZZLE: We love to drizzle our apple pie roll ups with a little bit of homemade icing for added sweetness. It’s so delicious!


How to Make Apple Pie Roll-Ups

  2. Roll the bread out with a rolling pinroll the bread slice with rolling pin
  3. Fill each piece of flattened bread with apple pie filling.
    Pro-tip: If the apple pie filling is too large, you can roughly chop it up to make it easier to roll into your bread. And you will likely have some filling left from this recipe! I like to use mine as a spread on toast or English muffins for breakfast.put apple pie filling and roll up
  4. Roll up each piece of bread and set aside.
    Pro-tip: Be aware that cinnamon swirl bread will break more easily, so don’t roll these too tight. It’s more like a gentle fold. a roll with apple pie filling
  5. Combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour butter and vanilla into a separate bowl. Dip each rolled bread into butter and place on a sheet pan.dipping each roll into the butter
  6. Sprinkle the top with the sugar mixture.
    Pro-tip: I don’t recommend that you roll each rollup into the sugar mixture. I found that they tend to burn more easily on the bottom when completely rolled. It’s best to simply sprinkle it on the top. sprinkle the top with sugar mixture
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use homemade pie filling for my Apple Pie Roll-ups?

You most definitely can use your own pie fillings for your apple pie roll-ups. Whether it’s homemade apple pie filling or another type of pie filling such as cherry or blackberry, you can use both homemade and store-bought pie filling in this recipe.

What do I do if I don’t have parchment paper?

The filling in these roll-ups do have a chance of spilling over on the pan, especially if you put too much. So if you don’t have parchment paper, aluminum foil, or silicone baking mat (best option) is a good option to keep the sheet pan clean. Cooking spray will also work fine, you might just have more clean-up to do.

How do I store my Apple Pie Roll-ups?

These can be stored at room temperature for a couple of days if placed in an airtight container. Or you can place them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4-5 days.
