take that, apple pie

try little, crispy, apple, taco thingies instead.  so much easier and made to be tackled with your fingers, if you want to bring them along to a shin dig instead of cookies.

so, ingredients.  ten flour tortillas, a cube of butter, 1 can apple pie filling, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling.  melt the butter and brush the back of the taco then flip over and brush the front.  sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.  scoop on some apple pie filling.  roll and sand with sugar and cinnamon again.  bake for 20 minutes and 400 degrees and you’re set.  these babies reheat nicely at 200 degrees and are even good cold.  but they are best right out of the oven, naturally.  enjoy.

p.s.  lesser men have been known to use cooking spray instead of butter…  just a thought.

    Sounds yummy…and easy. I’ll make this the next time my grands come for a visit. They love getting their hands in the midst of making meals.

    If you have more time and want fatter ones you put in a pyrex, try these…
    This is an original:
    Apple Burritos
    4 large Granny Smith apples
    1 can 100% apple juice
    3 Tbs. Minute tapioca
    1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    Pinch salt
    1/4 c. Earth Balance spread
    6 to 8 whole-wheat fajita
    sized tortillas
    Core, peel, quarter and slice apples into thin slices. Place apples, apple juice concentrate, tapioca, cinnamon and salt into a sauce pan and simmer on medium heat until apples are firm-tender.
    Fill tortillas with about 1/2 cup of apple filling and fold as you
    would a burrito. Place in a 9×13 baking dish. Mash remaining filling and stir in melted Earth Balance spread. Pour sauce over the burritos. Bake in oven which has been preheated to 350 degrees
    until sauce is bubbly. Serve alone or with soy whip cream (available at the Co-Op) or soy ice cream. Enjoy!
