Cinnamon Apple Flautas With Caramel Sauce
tablespoons sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
6 flour tortillas (6-inch, fajita size)
3 Washington Fuji apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup Marzetti's Caramel Apple Dip
Heat oven to 325°F. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon;
set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet. Brush butter on one side of each
tortilla; sprinkle each buttered side with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Turn tortillas over and repeat buttering and sprinkling. Reserve remaining
butter in skillet.
Place tortillas on an ungreased baking sheet and place in oven just to warm -
about 1 minute. Remove from oven and roll the tortillas loosely to make tubes;
place seam side down on baking sheet. Return tortillas to oven and bake just
until lightly browned on underside and a bit crisp - 6 to 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in remaining butter in skillet, saute apples and remaining tablespoon
sugar over high heat until lightly browned and tender - about 8 minutes. Remove
from heat and stir in lemon juice.
To serve, spoon warm apples into tortillas. Warm the caramel mixture in the
microwave 15 seconds; stir and microwave another 15 seconds. Drizzle caramel
over flautas and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
