Apple burritos are ideal for dessert, as an after school snack or to take on the road to a soccer practice. For small children, use small flour tortillas, filling each with about 1/4 cup (50 mL) apple mixture.
- 2 tbsp (25 mL) unsalted butter
- 6 Ontario Apples, peeled (if desired) and cut into thin slices
- 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground ginger
- 1 tsp (5 mL) cornstarch
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) Ontario Maple Syrup
- 4 large flour tortillas, preferably whole grain
- 1 tsp (5 mL) butter, melted
- 1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar
Additional fillings (optional): Dried cranberries, raisins, granola, toasted coconut, chopped nuts or chocolate chips
Additional toppings (optional): Ontario Maple Syrup, Ontario Honey, frozen vanilla yogurt or ice cream
In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add apples, cinnamon and ginger; stir until apples begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir cornstarch into maple syrup until dissolved. Add to apple mixture, stirring constantly until boiling and thickened, about 2 minutes.
Divide apple mixture among tortillas, placing in row on bottom third of each. If using additional filling, top apples with 2 tbsp (25 mL). Roll bottom of tortilla over filling; flip sides over then roll up tightly to enclose. Place seam side down on baking sheet.
Brush tops with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until crispy, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, sliced diagonally in half with additional toppings if desired.
