I had a blog reader send me this cook book. I’ve told you all how much I love paging through community and church cookbooks. I’ve had fun looking through this one.
This recipe caught my eye…
Fruit Tortillas. I had some tortillas in the refrigerator that needed to be used up, so this was the perfect recipe.
I gathered the ingredient and got to making them. The fun part of the recipe is that it’s really quick and involves little prep.
It’s as easy as putting some pie filling on a tortilla and rolling it up.
While I was doing that, I warmed the other ingredients on the stove. I poured the water mixture over the top and popped them in the oven.
They came out looking like this…
The recipe doesn’t call for it but I made a drizzled frosting for the top. I took 1/4 stick of Butter softened
2 ounces of Cream Cheese softened
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Enough powdered sugar to make a drizzle frosting consistency
We ended up eating them like this…with Redi Whip on top.
They were very good but rich. I would make them again for sure but I would half the recipe and make them in a 9 x 9 pan.
I love trying weird recipes that aren’t the norm. This was a fun one. It got two thumbs up from everyone who tried it.

My granddaughter makes something similar, but uses crescent roll dough .
We use tortillas all the time. Looks like a perfect treat for my sweet tooth. I like “different” recipes too. Lately I’ve been craving tortillas with ham,hard salami and (cheddar) cheese. Just layer cheese between the two meats. Roll up and pop in micro wave for 30- 60 or 90 seconds- depending on how you like your cheese melted. The salami taste so different heated up.
PS- I’m from the generation of Yumbo sandwich…
Looks delicious! Maybe if you put some unsweetened fruit inside with the pie filling, they wouldn’t be so sweet.
Yes, looks yummy but makes my teeth hurt at the thought of all that sugar!
Brought back a lot of memories when I saw the cover. I went to high school in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Had to make this right away!! Halved the recipe and cooked apples with cinnamon and a LITTLE bit of sugar instead of canned filling. Made the pour-over water and drizzle with brown sugar instead of white. Cut down on the sweetness and came out sort of butterscotchy.
That sounds really good!
Oh yum! I’m all out of tortilla right now. But if I made them I might add some ricotta cheese to that fruit! Looks scrumptious
