Tonight I was looking for a quick desert that used the ingredients that I had on hand.  The main ingredient I wanted to use was a bag of small apples that were almost too ripe.  These fruit enchiladas were an easy way to make a fantastic desert with very little effort.  The most traditional desert to make when you have a bag of apples is an apple pie.  The downside to that is I do not do pie pastry.  I am an OK cook who can bar-b-que, make a mean casserole, whip up a cake and make some fine cookies, but I DO NOT make pie crusts.  I have tried many times but with no success. When I saw in a cook book a recipe for Apple Enchiladas I knew this was for me.  Fruit, crust (really flour tortillas), butter and sugar, how could this not be great. I am calling these fruit enchiladas because they could be so easily adapted to whatever fruit you have.  I think berry enchiladas would be out of this world.  Other ideas would be peach, pear, or even mixed fruit.  Today I am using apples, dried cranberries and pecans in my fruit enchiladas.

Fruit Mix
2 cups of cut up fruit
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter
Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of water
8- 8 inch flour tortillas

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook fruit with sugar and butter until soft.
  3. Spoon fruit evenly onto all tortillas, sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up tortillas and place seam side down on lightly greased 8×8 baking pan.
  4. Bring margarine, sugars and water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.
  5. Pour sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle with extra cinnamon on top if desired. Let mixture set for 20 minutes before baking.  Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Makes 8 .
