6 flautas


  • 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and chopped

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 6 (8 inch) flour tortillas

  • canola oil for frying

  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 tablespoon milk, or more as needed

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Stir apples, sugar, and cinnamon together in a small saucepan over medium heat until apples are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon 2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of mixture into each tortilla; roll tortillas into cylinders that are 1 inch in diameter.

  2. Warm 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Place 2 flautas carefully into the hot oil with metal tongs and fry until light golden brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining flautas.

  3. Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl until smooth and consistency is slightly thick, but pourable. Drizzle over flautas.
