Apple Pie Rolls Ups

Don't stress over baking a pie when you can make these sweet and crispy apple roll ups with simple white bread.


  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • Water
  • Lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 3/4 tablespoons soft light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 10+ slices white bread
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Cinnamon sugar:
  • 1/2 cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Peel apples and cut into quarters. Remove the core and cut the remainder into small chunks. Once cut, place in a large bowl of water with fresh lemon juice to stop the apples from browning.
  2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and cinnamon together. Add the apple chunks, draining off most of the water. Add the two sugars and stir until dissolved.
  3. Cover with lid and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes, or until softened. Make sure to stir occasionally.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together cornflour and water to form a smooth liquid/paste.
  5. Add to the softened apples and simmer for 2 minutes until sauce has thickened. Leave to cool slightly.
  6. Cut crusts off each slice of bread and use a rolling pin to flatten each slice. Spoon a small amount of the apple filling onto one end of the bread and roll it up short ways.
  7. Dip each roll into the melted butter, followed by the cinnamon sugar and place seam down onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Leave to cool slightly before eating.
