3 T sugar
3 T butter or margarine
3 to 4 apples (peeled and sliced thin)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 - 6 inch flour tortillas
1 tsp lemon juice
Heat oven to 325. Mix 2 tablespoons of sugar with cinnamon and set aside. Melt butter in skillet. Brush butter on each side of tortilla, sprinkle each side with 1/2 tsp cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place tortillas on ungreased baking sheet and put in oven for a few minutes until just warm and pliable. Remove from oven and roll in tortillas loosely to make tubes, placing them seam side down on the baking sheet and returning to oven for about ten minutes, until browned and crispy.
Meanwhile, saute apples in remaining butter in skillet over high heat with 1 T sugar, until browned and tender (or just dump the rest of your cinnamon sugar mixture in there with them!). Add in lemon juice. Remove browned tortilla tubes from oven and spoon apple mixture into them. Sit down and eat yours while you listen to moans of happiness from your guests.
