One of the greatest things from my childhood was a dish that we use to call Texas Apple Strudel. Now I know it is not really strudel but that is what we always called it. It is so good and so easy to make and kids love it and adults love it and I think you will love it also. It can be dressed up and served as a dessert or it can be a great snack or something special for cookouts or picnics or company. This recipe is made with sliced canned apples and flour tortillas, how easy is that. The really good thing about these, is they will last in the refrigerator for about three days…and they are really good the next day after they get all gooey in the middle…you will love these!
