Making different desserts are fun to create and tweak. This one I have been making for several years. You can use so many fruits as the filling. Today I am going to share a favorite. Apples & Cinnamon baked enchiladas. You’ll need the small flour tortillas (6″), 4 whole apples of your choice, peeled, cored and sliced, 1/2 stick sweet cream butter (melted), 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1/4 cup apple juice, 3 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, 1/4 cup pure honey (divided use).
Lay flour tortillas on a flat work surface, in a bowl add honey and using a brush coat the inside of flour tortillas with the honey (I usually make two dozen at a time-1/2 can be frozen before baking). In a saute pan add butter on medium heat add apple slices, cinnamon, sugar and saute until tender (about 10-12 minutes, remove from heat). Fill the tortillas up the middle with the cooked apples, fold the ends inward and roll tortillas closed, seam side down place in a non stick 9″ x 12″ baking dish. Repeat with the remaining honey coated tortillas and fruit mixture. In a mixing bowl add remaining honey, apple juice and confectioners sugar and whisk well to combine. Pour over rolled tortillas and place in a 350 F hot oven for 10 minutes. Serve with Whipped Cream and enjoy!
If you are going to freeze them separate the ones in an airtight container and do not use honey/confectioner’s sugar glaze until ready to bake. To thaw remove from freezer and place overnight in the refrigerator. Place thawed enchiladas in a baking dish, add the topping (honey/confectioner’s sugar/apple juice) cover with foil and bake at 350 F 10 minutes. Most times I make one dozen baked and then serve, the other dozen I freeze before baking.
They’re a favorite!
