I can skip the chocolate, cookies and cakes. They don’t tempt me to veer off my healthy eating plan, but chips and bread? You’d have to rip them out of my greedy little hands.
But there is one dessert that can send me to heaven . . .
. . . and that’s apple anything. Apple cake, apple cobbler, apple buckles, applesauce with whipped cream and crushed graham crackers (a treat Grandma Karen served when I was a kid).
So when Tortilla Land sent me samples of their tortillas and I had extras, I knew just what to make with them. Tortillas stuffed with a bit of light cream cheese and tender apples spiced with cinnamon.
The best thing about this dessert is that I don’t have to feel guilty about eating it!
Healthy cooking tip . . .
I have nothing against full fat dairy products. Often times a bit of a full fat product works better in a recipe than a low fat version. However, when the ingredient isn’t going to change the texture or flavor of a dish, I opt for low fat versions over full fat. I rarely choose nonfat. In most cases the product has increased sugar to replace the missing fat. I’d rather have a bit more fat, than loads of sugar.
Apple Stuffed Tortillas
2 medium tortillas
2 large apples, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup water
2 ounces low fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, add apples, honey, cinnamon and 3/4 cups water. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes until the apples are tender. Add additional water if needed. Apples should not be watery.
2. Combine cream cheese and lemon juice until softened and spreadable.
3. Toast tortillas in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until just brown. Spread one side of a tortilla with cream cheese, then top with 1/2 the apples. Fold the tortilla over then warm through again on each side in the skillet.
