Dessert Burrito

Check out this sweet burrito!

It’s almost summer and I look forward to all those sweet summer fruits, especially the berries!  Here is a treat that can serve as dessert or even breakfast!  Its low in sugar and full of flavor!  Change up the fruits you use and maybe add a little cinnamon or nutmeg too!  Just bake it up and take a bite!  Delicious!

What you need:

  • 4    6 to 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar mixed with ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 8-10 large, fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 4 large strawberries for garnish
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

 

How to Do it:

First, brush both sides of the tortillas with the butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Mix the ricotta with the brown sugar and 1/8 of the mixture in the center of each tortilla.

Place ¼ of the strawberries and ¼ of ¾ cup blueberries over the ricotta.

Fold the tortilla burrito style and place, seam side down, onto a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, or until the tortilla is golden.  Remove from the oven to cool a little.

Top each burrito with the remaining ricotta mixture and blueberries.  Gently slice the 4 remaining strawberries into a fan shape and top the burrito with it.

Serve warm or cold – delicious either way!

Makes 4 servings.
