Back in the old days, and by old days, I mean C the MP was in middle school. You could buy these tortillas filled with pie filling. C loved them We typically bought cherry or apple. I’ve not seen them in years, but how tough can it be to make them.
I found a couple of recipes and decided to give them a go. Easy? Holy guacamole, they were easy.
8 8 inch flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 20 ounce can pie filling
2 cups water
1/4 cup butter
It also called for a teaspoon of cinnamon, but I didn’t want to go there
Fill tortillas with equal amounts of pie filling and place folded side down in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
Bring 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and the butter to a boil and pour over the tortillas.
Sprinkle the top with 1/2 cups sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Let stand before serving to allow the filling to thicken.
*****From the Recipe Box:
This wasn’t my favorite recipe yet, so I’m going to keep working on it. I’ll probably cut the tortilla in half so it won’t be quite so doughy.
I might even try them with wonton wrappers.
G thought the second 1/2 cup of sugar was too much, but you know how I feel about my sugar.
