Dessert Time! Apple & Cinnamon Enchiladas

After the weekend of crazy TV episodes, I need a treat to calm my nerves! A lot of times I skip out on making dessert at home because at that point I’m so exhausted from the long day of work, taking care of the kids and cooking dinner. But occasionally, I am willing to be bold in the kitchen and exhaust my second wind for desserts that will reward my taste buds.

Here’s a easy and scrumptious dessert I learned from Pinterest and it comes from the site, Cornfed Momma. Look at them – my mouth is starting to water. Ugh! I want one now.

Ingredients and Supplies

1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water

Directions

1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla.

3.  Sprinkle with cinnamon; roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.

4.  In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.

5.  Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 45 minutes to  let the sauce thicken. However, I’ve let it sit around 5 minutes and the final product turns out just as good.

6.  Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden.

7.  Last step and tip – add vanilla ice cream in the bowl with the apple enchilada – it takes to the next euphoric level of goodness….Nom, nom, nom!

You can totally add more to this recipe – nuts, cherry pie filling instead of apple, whip cream instead of ice cream – the possibilities are endless.
