Apple Tortillas

    5 apples thinly sliced
    1 large can peaches thinly sliced (reserve juice)
    1 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 cups white sugar
    1/4 cup cornstarch
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    dash teaspoon ground nutmeg
    approximately 1 cup water

  • In a large bowl, toss apples & peaches with lemon juice and set aside.
  • Measure out 2 cups of peach juice and/or water. 
  • Pour mixture into large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
  • Add to water/peach juice mixture, stir well, and bring to a boil.
  • Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add apples & peaches and return to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer until apples are tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Cool for 30 minutes.

    10-12  medium sized flour tortillas
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/3 cup butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup water

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Spoon fruit mixture evenly onto all tortillas, sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Roll up tortillas and place seam side down on lightly greased 8x8 baking pan.
  • Note:  Only about 4 fruited tortillas will fit in 8x8 pan.  The rest I usually freeze for another day (making the below sauce up for them at the time of serving).  If serving more than 4 - 6 people, use a larger pan and double the below sauce recipe.
  • Bring butter, sugars and water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.
  • Pour sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle with extra cinnamon on top if desired. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
