I use to make these all the time for my kids…growing up on the farm. However, I fried them. Oh they were DELICIOUS that way! And the ONLY way in Arizona summers.
However (in winter)
baking gets them all done at once and is probably healthier, so I’ll post the oven method here. The frying doesn’t really need a “different” recipe; you simply put a little oil in heated skillet, start with seam side down, when golden/crispy…flip & do other side. 😀
~ OH, btw…I made them with other fruits too. Delicious peach, etc..
Cooked apples (or apple preserves, pie filling…for less cooking→ EASY!)
Caramel (homemade ♥ or store bought ; D I like the kind sold in coffee section that’s for fraps, Caramel Macchiato, etc.
Butter, cinnamon & sugar (optional)
Confectioners’ (powdered) sugar (optional)
Preheat Oven to 350º
Baking sheet (optional to line baking sheet with parchment paper)
Brush both sides of tortilla with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar
Place scoop of cooked apples in center, drizzle a little caramel on it. Roll and place seam side down on baking sheet.
Bake 18-22 minutes.
Drizzle caramel over flautas & you can sift powdered sugar over them also.
IF you didn’t add the stuff on top of them AND folded them like burritos, they could be eaten on the run. And called “Caramel Apple Pie Pockets”….just a thought.
That light coming in my kitchen window, ruining my picture quality…did remind me to take this outside & eat it on the patio.
if you want to make your own caramel, here’s a great recipe→
Now…told in pictures 😀
