Apple Pocket Pie

This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 4 flour tortillas (about 8 inches)
  • 2 medium apples*
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • Milk
  • Sugar (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Warm tortillas in a microwave oven to make them easier to handle. Wash, then chop, apples into small pieces. Place one-fourth of the apples on half of each tortilla. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over apples. Roll up the tortillas, starting at the end with the fruit. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and make small slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Brush with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar if desired. Bake for eight to 12 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve warm.

*Peel apples if desired. However, the peeling adds fiber to your diet.
