Layered Apple Pies

Here's the Dish

For as long as I can remember my aunt has always brought a homemade apple pie for dessert on Thanksgiving Day. I love the taste of warm apples coated in a sweet cinnamon filling, but what really gives an apple pie it’s unforgettable taste is the flakey crust! The baked cinnamon and sugar wontons are the perfect replacement, and not only do they look pretty, they are flakey and delicious and are only 20 calories each! Add a little whip cream and cinnamon and you have all the taste of a classic apple pie without the calories!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20-25 minutes.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Lay wonton wrappers out individually on baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sweetener. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until wontons have crisped, and become lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven, let cool completely on baking sheet.


Meanwhile, to make the apple pie filling, Place all of the ingredients in a small sauce pan, and cook over medium heat, until apples are soft and resemble the appearance of apple pie filling, stirring constantly, (about 2-5 minutes). Remove from heat.


To build the layered apple pie, start by placing one baked wonton on a plate, and layer with about 2 tbs apple pie filling in between each layer, (alternating with cool whip if desired). Repeat layers 2 more times, (baked wonton will be the top layer, and three wontons will be used for each tower). Top with whipped topping if desired.


12 Wonton wrappers
2Large granny smith apples (or other baking apple of choice), peeled, and diced into small chunks
1 tbs Lemon juice
2 tbsHoney
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tspApple pie or pumpkin pie spice
Pinch Salt
2-3 pkts Stevia (or sweetener to taste)
OptionalToppings: 1(8 oz) Container Light Cool Whip or Tru Whip

Do you know if it’s possible to use rice paper instead of wonton wrappers?

I totally agree with you: a flaky pie crust is the best part of the pie. But wow, these layered apple pies look so delicious too!

Morgan- I have celiac disease, too. There’s a recipe for gluten free wonton wrappers in Gluten Free on a Shoestring. The recipe has been reproduced online here:

I just tried this recipe, but I had to make some changes because I didn’t have all the right ingredients. Instead of wontons I use tortillas and sliced them into squares. I also just used nutmeg and Gala apples because I had no Granny Smith’s. They came out pretty good. Thanks!
