I'm back from the beach...and Cinnamon Apple Flautas
Before I left for my week long trip to Ocean City, MD I made these yummy Apple Flautas found on Southern Plate. I was sure I saw them on another blog as well but when I did a search on google I only saw the one from southern plate. If you think I saw it on yours please comment and let me know. :-)
These were actually VERY simple to make and my family loved them...everyone except my 3 year old..but lately if its not a McDonald's plain cheeseburger or a bowl of chicken and rice she doesn't want it!
I had to get a quick picture of these because they were gone so FAST! I only changed the amount of sugar...
Cinnamon Apple Flautas
2 T sugar
3 T butter or margarine
3 to 4 apples, peeled and sliced thin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 - 6inch flour tortillas
1 tsp lemon juice
1.) Heat oven to 325.
2.) Mix sugar with cinnamon and set aside.
3.) Melt butter in skillet.
4.) Brush butter on each side of tortilla, sprinkle each side with 1/2 tsp cinnamon/sugar mixture.
5.) Place tortillas on ungreased baking sheet and put in oven for a few minutes until just warm and pliable.
6.) 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.
7.) While tortillas are baking, saute apples in remaining butter in skillet over high heat with the rest of the cinnamon sugar mixture, until browned and tender.
8.) Add in lemon juice.
9.) Remove browned tortilla tubes from oven and spoon apple mixture into them.
10.) ENJOY!!! Eat them while they are hot because they are awesome!
