Apple Pie Burritos

Active Time: 15 min.
Total Time: 35 min.

· 2 lg. Granny Smith apples
· 1 orange
· 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
· 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
· 1 tbsp. cornstarch
· 2 tbsp. cold water
· 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
· 4 (7 to 8-inch) flour tortillas
· 1 tbsp. butter, melted sugar

Mise en Place

Quarter the apple length-wise and remove the core from each then slice quarters crosswise into thin slices.

Zest and juice the orange. Combine the cornstarch & water. Chop the nuts. Melt the butter. Pre-heat oven to 375° F.

Lightly grease baking sheet.

Preparation

Combine the apples, orange juice & zest in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and gently boil 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and cook 2-3 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add the cornstarch mixture and bring sauce to boil for 1 minute.

Place apple filling in a bowl and stir in nuts. Fill each tortilla by placing filling in center and folding edges to enclose. Place each on baking sheet, brush with butter and then sprinkle with sugar.

Bake 20-25 minutes. Let burritos rest for 20 minutes, cut in half diagonally and serve with vanilla-bean ice cream.

If you like your dessert less crispy, wrap each assembled burrito in plastic wrap, and reduce the oven temp to 300F.
