A fun recipe to make with kids. Use your favorite fruit and whole grain tortillas, and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • 2 peaches, pears, or apples (medium)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
  • 6 teaspoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
  • 2 tablespoons milk (fat-free)
  • sugar (optional)

Directions

1. Warm tortillas in microwave or oven to make them easier to handle.

2. Peel and chop fruit into pieces.

3. Place 1/4 of the fruit on half of each tortilla.

4. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over fruit.

5. Roll up the tortillas, starting at the end with the fruit.

6. Place on an un-greased baking sheet and make small slashes to allow steam to escape. Brush with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired.

7. Back at 350 degree in oven for 8-12 minutes or until lightly brown.

8. Serve warm or cool.

Notes

This easy snack helps work fruit into a daily diet. Tortillas, with a variety of toppings, make great snack builders.

Safety Tip: Allow pie to cool slightly before tasting - the steam and sugar can burn.
