Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Welcome to Inspiration Cafe!  
It's me, Mary, once again, 
from Sweet Little Bluebird!

I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!

Today I'm sharing a fun fall recipe that 
was a major hit in our house ~

Baked Apple Pie Tortilla Rolls

Tortillas make a great replacement for those who are not
fans of traditional pie crust... like my girls.

Here's how to make this yummy fall treat:

8 Flour Tortillas (I use Large Size Tortillas)
6 Medium Size Tart Apples, Peeled and Sliced/Diced (I use Granny Smith)
1 1/2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 
Dash of Nutmeg (about 1/8 teaspoon - optional)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

*Cinnamon Sugar Recipe
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Stir sugar and cinnamon together until well blended.

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.  Butter (grease) a 9X13 baking dish.  Next, combined all of the ingredients above with the sliced/diced apples, making sure the apples are coated well. Place a 1/2 cup of the apple mixture and spread in the center of a tortilla.  Roll the tortilla and place in pan, seam down.  Repeat 7 more times.  Note, You may only be able to fit 7 rolls in your pan.  Once rolls are in pan, lightly brush with melted butter and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, making sure to sprinkle in between each roll on their sides. Cover with foil and bake on middle rack of oven for 40-50 minutes. Bake until apples reach desired texture. Once done, remove and enjoy hot or cold! This treat is great served warm with vanilla ice cream!  
*For an easier version, you can use canned apple pie filling {I use Duncan Hines®}.  Simply decrease baking time to 15- 20 minutes, following the same directions above.

Thanks so much for stopping by Inspiration Cafe!
We hope to see you again next Monday!

Cheers ~ Mary
