Apple Tortilla Pie

Have I ever mentioned that I love Mexican food? Well, I do. So much so, that I even allow tortillas to infiltrate my apple pies. But don’t worry, it’s a good infiltration.

Apple Tortilla Pie

The result is this delicious layered apple pie that’s simple and not too sweet. I like throwing it together, whenever I have leftover whole wheat tortillas on hand, and serving it warm. I’ve yet to have a scoop of vanilla ice cream to accompany it–it’s tough living in an ice cream free home!–but it’s still good without it. I can’t complain.

Yield: 8 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 Tbs butter
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • ½ cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 cups peeled and chopped apples
  • 3 whole wheat flour tortillas (I use this recipe)
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients (except apples and tortillas) and stir until combined.
  2. Reserve a few tablespoons of the sauce for later. Stir in the chopped apples.
  3. Grease a 9" pie pan. Place a tortilla in the base of the pan. Layer on ½ of the apple filling. Place the second tortilla on top. Layer on the remaining apple filling and top with the third tortilla. Spread the reserved sauce on top of the tortilla.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly and the apples are tender.
  5. Serve warm or cooled.
