4 t. brown sugar
cinnamon sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

5. Stir together brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the apples.
6. Roll up the tortillas, starting at the end with the fruit and place on an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Personal Notes:
This is set up for four students in a lab group. It is easy to adjust if you have more or less in a group. Try with other fruit such as peaches or a combination of different fruits. The parchment paper makes clean-up so much easier!
