Apple Rolls

Apple rolls are a delightful dessert that combines the sweetness of apples with warm cinnamon flavors, all wrapped up in a soft and flaky pastry. Here's a recipe to make delicious apple rolls:


  • 2 large apples (preferably Granny Smith or another tart variety)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed according to package instructions
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. Place them in a bowl and toss them with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  3. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg (if using). Cook for about 5 minutes until the apples are tender and coated in the caramel-like sauce. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, unfold the thawed puff pastry sheet. Roll it out slightly to smooth any creases and create a slightly larger rectangle.
  5. Spread the cooled apple mixture evenly over the puff pastry sheet, leaving a small border around the edges.
  6. Starting from one long end, tightly roll the pastry into a log shape, encasing the apple filling.
  7. Slice the log into individual rolls, about 1 inch thick. Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
  8. Brush the tops of the rolls with beaten egg to give them a shiny golden finish.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the rolls are puffed up and golden brown.
  10. Remove the apple rolls from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
  11. Optionally, dust the apple rolls with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
  12. Serve the apple rolls warm as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for a delightful dessert.

Enjoy these delicious apple rolls with their warm and gooey apple filling, wrapped in flaky pastry. They are perfect for a cozy treat or a special dessert for any occasion.
