I used whole wheat tortillas, and the end result was nice and chewy (not tough, as other reviewers have said). The sweetness of the apples and sauce was well-balanced by the nutty flavor of the wheat torillas. Also, I made my own apple pie filling, using about 4 cups of thinly sliced apples, about 2/3c. white sugar, 2Tbsp. flour, a little water, and cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until apples soften (about 5 minutes)

Yuk! I tried this recipe just the way it is written and the tortillas were really tough. Next, I tried it with uncooked tortillas and, although they weren't tough, it just didn't taste very good. I give up. I won't try it again.

This is the best desert I've ever made. Instead of canned pie filling I used fresh diced apples, sprinkled with cinnamon and a couple tablespoons of apple butter, and then softened in the microwave for a few minutes. I loved them so much I made them with bananas and chocolate chips also!

Wonderful Recipe....easily 5 stars!! Whole family loved it more than most apple pie. Hubby said tortillas were better than pie crust, which he has never been fond. I did spread tortillas with 8oz softened cream cheese and added 1 tsp vanilla to the sauce....divine!! It's in our permanent collection! Thanks Brenda.

You can't miss with this easy and delicious recipe. Even my meat-and-potatoes-only teenage son, "the no-dessert-thanks-Mom" guy loved these. And I appreciated how quick and easy they were to make! I made a huge batch for a family gathering and they were really a hit. Next time I think I'll take a suggestion from my sister-in-law and toss in some walnuts and golden raisins. And I'm sure there will be many more next times to try different variations!

These were so delicious. I took them to a fellowship dinner and the entire plate (doubled) was gone! And I was asked for the recipe several times. They remind me exactly of apple dumplings and so much easier to make then the recipe I have used for years! Tastes great with cream as well as ice cream. :) (I used 6 in. tortillas) Yum! I cant believe how easy, inexpensive, fast, and delicious this is!

My husband and I love this recipe! It couldn't be any simpler or quick. Bring your favorite side of ice cream to the table with this recipe and you won't be disappointed! Get's better after a few days even... we eat it up in about 3 days.
