Introduction: Apple rolls are one my family favorites, and every time I make them they disappear really quickly. This is a quick alternative of the Romanian apple pie, using the same filling. Those rolls make a perfect Sunday afternoon snack next to a clod glass of milk.

- 1 pack of pastry sheets
- 4 large apples
- 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 tbsp. of cinnamon

- With a sharp knife cut rolls out of the cylinders of about half an inch thick.
- Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchments paper
