Cinnamon Apple Dessert Burritos

Try this amazing Mexican dessert....Cinnamon Apple Burritos..!

Ingredients :

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 2 large green apples
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • Sugar for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Peel, core and quarter the apples, then cut the quarters into thin slices crosswise. Mix the orange and lemon or lime juice with the apples in a medium saucepan. Partially cover the pan and bring it to the boil. Turn the heat down a bit and simmer the fruit for 5 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, cloves and brown sugar and keep cooking the mixture uncovered for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix the cornstarch with the water in a small bowl and pour this into the apple mixture. Bring it back to the boil, stirring all the time. Cook for 1 minute then remove from the heat. Stir in the pecans. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let it cool.
Line a medium baking sheet with lightly greased aluminum foil. Working with 1 tortilla at a time, spoon a quarter of the fruit filling down the middle, leaving a 1 inch border at the end. Fold the ends over the filling, then fold one of the sides to enclose it. Using a pastry brush dipped in water, moisten the other edge of the tortilla. Keep folding it so it rests on the moistened part. Place it seam-down on the baking sheet. Repeat for the other tortillas.
Brush each one with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the tortillas are golden brown. Put the baking sheet on a wire rack to cook the burritos for 20 minutes. Cut each diagonally in halves to serve. You can garnish these dessert burritos with fresh cream and a sprig of mint...hmmm what a nice taste ! Great for after feasts ! Enjoy !
