Apple Enchiladas

These are a delightful twist for an apple dessert! Apple Enchiladas swimming in a light & rich caramel sauce...they are sinfully GOOD!!

3 granny smith apples peeled & diced
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon plus extra for sprinkling
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1-2 tsp lemon juice
pinch salt (it makes everything better!)
(you can use store bought apple pie filling for this but why? This is just too easy & much tastier)
8 medium flour tortillas (I used low carb ones, you could also use whole wheat if you want, any will work)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp butter extract (optional)
pinch salt

In a medium saucepan saute diced apples in butter. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, flour, & salt. Saute about 5 minutes or until apples are slightly tender. Fill each tortilla with about 1/4 cup apple filling and roll up burrito style. Combine all sauce ingredients except butter extract in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat & simmer 3 minutes if using add extract. Pour sauce over enchiladas & let stand for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let rest about 10 minutes and serve with sauce and vanilla ice cream. YUMM!!!
