Has anyone tried these? They look really good and I'm thinking of making them for a party. I'm wondering how they taste using cooking spray? Any feedback by Monday would be great! I made the mini-spanakopetas and we're serving them as well. They turned out GREAT!!!!!Thanks ahead of time!!!Becky:):):):):)
i haven't made these yet either, but they do look good. the only thing i didn't like about the recipe was using dried apples and rehydrating them. it just seems like it would be easier to use fresh apples...
i'm sure they'll turn out great with the cooking spray. good luck if you make them - let us know how they turn out! sorry i couldn't be of more help!

I agree, if I used fresh apples, would the cooking time be
longer at a lower temperature ?

I would use the re-hydrated dried fruit. It would be different than fresh. It's not like you can substitute grapes when the recipe calls for re-hydrated raisins. I think fresh wouldn't have the same flavor or consistency - fresh apples are MUCH juicier, and dried fruit has a much more concentrated flavor. Just MHO!!! :)

Hey everyone-Thanks for responding. I did make them and they were GREAT!!! Everyone raved about them and couldn't believe they were low fat. I too wished they could be made with fresh apples since I have so many of them. It seemed ridiculous to go buy dried apples with all the fresh I had, so I dried them myself in the oven. The only problem was they took like 5 1/2 hours. I look back and think it would probably have been cheaper to just buy the dried rather than keep the oven on all that time. Anyway, these were awesome, but quite time consuming. If anyone has ideas on using fresh in this recipe, I would greatly appreciate it!!!
i'm glad to hear these turned out great. i would like to make them for DH because he is an apple-dessert freak and i know he'd like these. now, to find some dried apples...
ps what was time-consuming? the actual rolling-up or just drying the apples in the oven?

Hey Marisa-the apple drying was time consuming -I turned the apples several times during the drying time so you couldn't just leave them. Also, rolling them up took me quite a while-at least longer than I had expected. Anyway, if I had the time, I WOULD make these again. I found dried apples at WalMart yesterday for like $1.10 a bag, so next time that's what I'll be using!!!Good luck!!

I also made the apple roll ups. They had a great taste, but I am not sure what the texture was supposed to be like. When I took them out of the oven, they were very crisp. (So crisp I thought I'd have crumbs all over the floor if I served them at my party!). But then I put them in a plastic food storage container and they became soft from the moisture in the apple filling. In the photograph, they looked crisp - so I am not sure how they are supposed to be. I don't know how to store them and retain the crispness. Although they were good, I am not sure I would go to the effort again. Now if you want to talk about the peppermint- chocolate chip cheescake cookies from the same issue - they are a definite "make again"! These were great!
I am glad to hear good reviews of these! I am planning to make them for a holiday dessert open house next weekend (along with the mini peppermint chocolate chip cheesecakes!).
How do you think they would do if I made them this weekend and froze them until the party? Would they hold up or should I just plan to make them at the last minute? I am seven months pregnant, so am trying to maximize my time on my feet these days :-) so any advice would be great.
Just bumping this up to see if anyone has thughts about freeezing these...
