Cinnamon Apple Empanadas

Here’s a quick and easy to way to fill an apple pie void and chances are you will have all of your ingredients readily available. This was a hit with my daughter who gave me the side eye as I was randomly putting it together. To give it a Latin twist, add my favorite fruit of all time, MANGO!


  • 12.4 oz can Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing (8 rolls)
  • 1 medium granny smith apple, peeled and thing sliced
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • In a small bowl, combine corn starch, lemon juice and sugar until smooth.
  • Coat apples with mixture; set aside.
  • Roll out cinnamon rolls (cinnamon facing the top) to about a 4-4 ½ inch diameter.
  • Divide apples evenly among the 8 rolls.
  • Fold and seal each roll.
  • Bake according to package instructions for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Drizzle icing and serve warm.

    El sábado pasado hice estas empanadas de manzana canela para mi familia. A ellos les gustaba las empanadas pero mi madre pensó que era un poco dulce. La receta era fácil de hacer y yo pasé a menos de diez minutos para prepararse. No tuve almidón de maíz, en lugar de eso se utiliza la harina y las empanadas eran deliciosos.
