Burritos for Dessert

You can have your burritos and dessert, too! Enjoy these wonderful combinations of burritos and dessert fillings.

If you haven't yet mastered crepes or don't want to mess with turnovers, grab a few burrito-sized tortillas and turn them into dessert. It's easy and the flavor combinations can be just as fun to create.

Burrito Preparation

First, the burritos should be softened or they may break open when folding.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
Cover a cookie sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray
Melt a little butter in a small bowl in the microwave
Place the burritos flat on the cookie sheet (as many as will fit, usually 2)
Brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar
Bake for about 5 minutes and have ingredients ready for fillings.
Fold burrito-style and return to oven for baking (about 15-20 minutes, depending on ingredients)

Fillings can be a combination of favorite fruits such as bananas, apples, raspberries, and cherries. You may want to pre-cook some fruits before filling. Don't leave out other tasty treats such as chocolate, marshmallows, and crumbled cookies.

When the dessert burrito is ready, be sure to include toppings: whipped cream, chocolate syrup, etc.

Serve immediately. These are great for a casual brunch.

How to fold a burrito:

A burrito should not be overloaded with filling. Place 3 or 4 tablespoons of filling in a space about two inches from the edge facing you and about 2 inches in from both sides. Roll up the front edge closest to you and tuck the edge over the filling. Fold in both sides carefully and hold while continuing to fold toward the opposite end. Lay the burrito on the cooking tray with the outside edge facing down.
