Apple Blueberry Enchilada’s, Really!!

This recipe popped out at me when I was surfing my favorite site Pinterest.  I have found so many amazing recipes and DIY, you name it!  We are all addicted.  The original recipe is here.  I as always had to add my spin on it.  We have another favorite desert around here and that is Peach and Blueberry Cobbler, so I thought..Blueberries and Apples sound great together too!  I also added a little more cinnamon to the sauce.  It was outstanding, that is all I can say.

Apple Blueberry Enchilada

This was super simple!  I used this canned apple pie filling “ Mussleman’s” it was 99 cents.  I just dumped it into a small mixing bowl and chopped up the large slices of apples with a knife so they would not be so bulky.  The sauce is very simple: 1/2 cup of each Water, Butter, white sugar and brown sugar.  I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Bring to a boil in a sauce pan and the lower the heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes.  Meanwhile grab 6 flour tortilla’s and I put a damp towel over them and heated in the Microwave for 30 seconds to make them pliable.  In a buttered casserole dish place a tortilla and add 1/4 cup pie filling down the center towards one of the sides (like you would making regular Enchiladas) and then I added a small handful fresh Blueberry’s on top.  The roll.  Make all 6 and pour the Sauce over the top and let it set for 45 minutes.

Then sprinkle to top with a little more cinnamon and pit in oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  That is it!  I served them fresh out of the oven with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.  The flavor of the tortilla was sweet like a very light pastry (after sitting in butter and sugar for 45 minutes it should!)  I will be making these again and again.  The Blueberry’s made it I think.  I will never make it without them.

APPLE BLUEBERRY ENCHILADA”S

  • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
  • 1 Container of Fresh Blueberry’s
  • 6 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

Then follow the instructions above and you will have one of the easiest deserts ever! The hardest part is the waiting 45 minutes to pop it in the oven.  The house smells amazing and you just do not think you can wait.

Enjoy!!!!!

Another Egg Free Recipe: Chocolate dipped Macaroons!

This recipe came from the a blog I subscribe to http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2009/06/19/chocolate-dipped-coconut-macaroons/ I left a comment on the post regarding the use of a substitute for the egg and she got right back to me with an answer.  Use 1/4 mashed banana in place of the egg.  I finally made these last night.  They are so good!  I am not sure what a Macaroon is supposed to taste like but I have been seriously missing out all of these years if this is it!

I wanted to take a picture last night after they set but the natural light of course was gone.  Here is the Macaroon fresh out of the refrigerator  this morning.  I also used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet thinking it might go well with the Banana.  This is definitely something to keep in the fridge especially in Arizona (where we everything in the fridge).  Check out her recipe.  It is so easy and the use of sweetened condensed milk, coconut flakes, vanilla, a little salt and that 1/4 mashed banana turns into  heaven when baked and dipped in chocolate.  I promise to share with my friends.  I again used fat free sweetened condensed milk and they were great.  Egg Free!  I love it.  Thank you Brown Eyed Baker!
