Comment on this recipe

This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily. And it is so good served with nonfat yogurt, nonfat frozen yogurt, or of all things ice cream.

Ingredients

2 (6 to 7 inches) flour tortillas
Butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray or nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 apples (or pears), peeled, cored, sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 can (5 1/2 ounces) apple juice
1 tablespoon dried currents or raisins
Sifted powdered sugar, optional

Instructions

Place tortillas on a baking sheet. Lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together granulated sugar and 1/8 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Sprinkle mixture on tortillas. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely on wire wrack. Lightly coat a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. Preheat over medium heat. Add the apples or pears, brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Cook and stir about 10 minutes or until golden in color. Add apple juice and currents or raisins. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples (pears) caramelize and liquid evaporates. Spoon apple/pear mixture over plated tortillas, sprinkle sifted powdered sugar on top of each. Serve immediately.
