This is the recipe I reach for when I want something quick, homemade, delicious, and impressive. They require so little effort and can be made almost as quickly as they disappear! I especially like that you can make these little marvels with Splenda instead of sugar and substitute it whenever I make them for myself!
Tender apples sauteed in butter with cinnamon and sugar then spooned into crispy cinnamon sugar tortillas create the perfect hand held treat. My husband’s first word after taking a bite tonight was “Oh, WOW.”
- 3 T sugar
- 3 T butter or margarine
- 3 to 4 apples, peeled and sliced thin
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 6 - 6inch flour tortillas
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Heat oven to 325. Mix 2 tablespoons of sugar with cinnamon and set aside. Melt butter in skillet. Brush butter on each side of tortilla, sprinkle each side with ½ tsp cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place tortillas on ungreased baking sheet and put in oven for a few minutes until just warm and pliable. Remove from oven and roll in tortillas loosely to make tubes, placing them seam side down on the baking sheet and returning to oven for about ten minutes, until browned and crispy.
- Meanwhile, saute apples in remaining butter in skillet over high heat with 1 T sugar, until browned and tender (or just dump the rest of your cinnamon sugar mixture in there with them!). Add in lemon juice. Remove browned tortilla tubes from oven and spoon apple mixture into them. Sit down and eat yours while you listen to moans of happiness from your guests.
