Here's the dessert that I made for the food storage class; it was even better with the homemade tortillas! All the ingredients were made from food storage items, including the butter (Did you know that you can bottle butter or buy it in a can? It's soooo good. More on that later). Also I added instructions for how to make powdered sugar out of regular sugar. This is a really great idea to help you expand your food storage more and to help you out in your everyday cooking if you're in a pinch for powdered sugar.

Apple Enchiladas

1 (21-ounce) can apple fruit filling

6 (8-inch) flour (or wheat) tortillas

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

powdered sugar and milk for icing (pass around bag for texture)

Spoon fruit filling evenly down center of each tortilla; sprinkle evenly with cinnamon. Roll up, and place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

Bring butter and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Pour over enchiladas; let stand 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Homemade powdered Sugar (you can mix this with a little milk and drizzle over the enchiladas if you're like me and could use a little sugar overkill)

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Combine the two ingredients and process in blender until powder forms.
