Ingredients

  • 6 Mission® Super Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 3 cups apples peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp butter melted

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Sugar Drizzle

  • Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in small bowl, mixing well.
  • Put drizzle into a small plastic bag, cutting the tip of the bag and drizzle the apple pie fold-overs when ready.

Fold-Overs

  • Combine cinnamon and sugar and set aside until needed.
  • Combine apples and water in small saucepan. Cook and stir on high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 5 minutes. 
  • Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Simmer 5 minutes. Stir frequently. 
  • Combine flour and granulated sugar. Stir into apple mixture. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Stir in butter and set aside keeping warm until needed.
  • Heat both sides of the Mission® Super Soft Flour Tortillas on a skillet.  This will help the tortilla get some color and finish the cooking process.  *Big bubbles can appear and this is normal, they will go down.
  • Brush one side of the Mission® Super Soft Flour Tortillas with butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Repeat this process for each tortilla.
  • Place the buttered and sugared tortilla back on the skillet long enough to get some caramelization of the sugar; giving the tortilla a beautiful golden brown color.  Just be careful not to burn the tortilla or burn your hands when you remove them from the skillet.  Sugar can cause some pretty bad burns.  Repeat this process until you've finished the tortillas.
  • Fill un-sprinkled side of tortilla with apples and fold over.  Repeat the process until finished and drizzle with the glaze and serve immediately.
  • Garnish with fresh berries, mint leaves and whipped cream.

Notes

Chef Dennis Tips-
Any canned pie filling can be used in place of the fresh apples.
Add pecans or walnuts to the apples for added crunch, or sprinkle on top of the fold-overs.
Put the glaze in a small plastic bag, and snip a very small piece of the end of the bag to add the drizzle to the fold-overs.
If the apple mixture starts to look gummy or too thick add more water or apple juice to the pan. The mixture should be thick but still somewhat liquid.
Adding a squeeze of lemon juice or lime juice to the glaze is a nice way to add additional flavor to the fold-overs. You can even add in a little finely grated zest.
I found that moving the tortillas around while browning helped keep them from burning.
