"Apple Pie" Wraps

I've really been in the mood for some "baked" apples, which I used to make in the microwave using cut up apples and cinnamon. That's it! They were so good, easy, and fast. Unfortunately, I am still without a microwave, so I've been racking my brain to come up with another quick solution, as I have no patience to wait for them to be baked in the oven.

So, I thought, how about making them in a wrap? Kind of like the McDonald's Apple pies that I ate when I was young. Warm with a crunchy crust, but of course, much much healthier!

I assembled my ingredients- Ezekiel tortilla wraps, apples, cinnamon, and took out my panini press.

Here is what you'll need-
  • Apple(s)- any kind you like!
  • Cinnamon, and any other spices you would use in "apple pie"
  • tortilla
  • Panini press, or stove top grill
 Cut up your apples
 Lay your tortilla on the panini press
 place apples in the center
 add your spices
 Fold like an envelope
Close press. I initially put it on the highest setting, but then changed it to medium. This gives the apples a bit longer to "bake" without burning the tortilla.
I cooked it about 5 minutes. The time will depend on your press and what setting you have it at.
 All done! Hot and delicious!
 Much better than McDonalds!
Let me know what you think!
