Wilderness Recipe – Apple Pie Pockets

alaska backpacking campsiteSince dessert is one of our favorite meals (and is always brought along on our multi-day trips) we’d like to share one of our most popular desserts! It’s a little heavier to pack in, so it’s great for Alaska basecamp hiking or car camping – it’s also a very filling dessert, so enjoy it after a lighter dinner!

Chef Extraordinaire: Jonas

Serves: 4 people
  • 1 Apple
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • 1 tortilla per person

Cooking Equipment Needed: frypan (the lid of your pot can work!) and spatula


Thinly slice apple in the field. Lay apple slices inside tortillas, cover with brown sugar and cinnamon and little flakes of butter and wrap up like a burrito. Use remaining butter to fry on frying pan. Voila!
