6 inches flour tortillas
Butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray or nonstick cooking spray
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
apples or pears, peeled, cored, and sliced
tablespoon brown sugar
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
5 1/2 ounce can apple juice
tablespoon dried currants
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)
  1. Place tortillas on a baking sheet. Lightly coat tortillas with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl stir together granulated sugar and the 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Sprinkle over tortillas. Bake in a 400 degree F oven about 10 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Add apples or pears, brown sugar, and the 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; cook and stir about 10 minutes or until golden. Add apple juice and currants. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes or until the apples caramelize and the liquid evaporates.
