DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 325°F In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet. Brush butter on one side of each tortilla; sprinkle each buttered side with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar mixture. Turn tortillas over and repeat buttering and sprinkling. Reserve remaining butter in skillet.
  • Place tortillas on an un-greased baking sheet and place in oven for 1 minute. Remove from oven and roll the tortillas loosely to make tubes; placing seam side down on baking sheet. Return tortillas to oven and bake for 6-8 minutes just until lightly browned on underside and a bit crisp.
  • In the remaining butter in skillet, sauté apples and remaining tablespoon sugar over high heat for about 8 minutes until lightly browned and tender. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  • To serve, spoon warm apples into tortillas. Warm the caramel mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds, stopping it half way and stirring. Drizzle caramel over flautas and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
