Apple Caramel Nut Roll-Ups


1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 large Jonathan apples
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 thin flour tortillas (8-inch)
3/4 cup caramel sauce
Whipped cream


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Spread pecans in shallow baking pan. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned; set aside.
  2. Place tortillas in plastic bag (do not seal). Microwave at HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or until heated through; set aside. Place caramel sauce in microwavable container. Microwave at HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or until hot.
  3. Lay tortillas flat on work surface. Spoon 1/6 of apples down center of each tortilla. Top with 1 tablespoon nuts and 1 tablespoon sauce. Fold one side tortilla over filling; roll up. Place on large serving platter or individual plates. Drizzle each roll-up with about 1 tablespoon sauce. Top with whipped cream and 1 teaspoon nuts.

Apple Flan


3 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 firm, tart apples (Gala, McIntosh or Granny Smith), peeled, quartered, seeded, and cut into thick wedges
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

For the custard:

3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups regular or soy milk
3 tablespoons brandy (optional)
Raspberry, strawberry or caramel sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Oil a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  2. Prepare the apples: Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes; do not let them get mushy. Stir in the brown sugar and lemon zest. Cook until the apples are caramelized, about 2 to 3 more minutes. (The brown sugar and juices should be thick and syrupy.)
  3. Spread the apple mixture over the bottom of the prepared baking dish and set aside.
  4. Make the custard: Process the 3/4 cup sugar and the eggs in a food processor until light and lemon-colored. Add the oil and process until just combined. Add the flour; pulse (repeatedly turn the machine on and off) just until combined. Add the vanilla, milk or soy milk, and, if using, brandy. Pulse just until combined. Pour the custard over the apples.
  5. Bake until the top is lightly browned and the custard is barely set, about 25 minutes. Turn the oven to broil, sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar evenly over the top of the flan, and broil for a few seconds until lightly browned (watch carefully; it burns easily).
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature with a simple raspberry, strawberry or caramel sauce, if desired. Also good with whipped cream.
