Ingredients

  • 3 large apples
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp arrowroot
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg optional

Instructions

1

Slice apples and set aside

2

Add water and arrowroot in a saucepan and whisk then add sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (optional)

3

Whisk until well combined

4

Now add the sliced apples in the saucepan and simmer on low heat until apples are soft and tender

5

Allow to cool before using in recipe or store in an air tight jar

Notes

Note: In the Netherlands we have what we call basterd suiker. This sugar comes in white, medium dark and dark. It is a moist type of sugar and used for making cooking. I have looked to see what is the equivalent for it in other countries. Brown sugar or caster sugar are mentioned as equivalents but is not totally the same. Note: I've made this recipe without the arrowroot and it still comes out great a little less solid but still good to use as a filling. Note: I'm not a sweet tooth so it could be that this recipe is not sweet enough for your taste. Reduce the amount of lemon juice or use more sugar. Note: I used all types of apples for the apple pie filling. I came to find that green apples take a little longer to get soft (5-10 minutes longer) so if you use green apple keep that in mind.

    This video clearly shows brown sugar as well as white sugar but the recipe doesn’t have brown sugar listed. This explains why it was WAY too much cinnamon. I had to wing it a bit and figure it out but it finally tastes good and, of course, the house smells delicious! I’m making the taquitos tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to it!🍎🍏

      Cathy, thanks for you comment. This recipe only contains brown sugar not white sugar, the white you see in the video is arrowroot to make the filling set more (it is also in the ingredients). Maybe that was the reason why it was too much cinnamon. I use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in this recipe and large apples but I can imagine that if you use smaller apples the ratio apple to cinnamon might be a big to much. Glad to read you found the right balance. I hope you have fun with the taquitos
