Today is Lawyer Boy’s 27th Birthday. I met him when he was 16 and still in high school. I remember meeting him one Saturday afternoon and then the next week, I was in a Oklahoma State University Extension office and there his picture was in a green jacket. I asked the lady I was meeting with why there was such a big picture of him and that awful green jacket, what was that about?? She laughed a little and said he was the 4-H President for the entire state, he was from that county extension office and the whole town was proud of him! Then she told me that he was going to be a lawyer. I smiled and then blew it off. Who knew she was right? He lived with us most of his first year of law school. That boy sure was messy – but we got to know each other very well that year and I’m happy to say that there have been times in his life he has come to me instead of his mom or dad when he has needed advice.
He will be off celebrating with his lovely wife, Minnie Mouse tonight but I will give him a call sometime during the day to say happy birthday. It’s not like when he was younger and we would all go out to celebrate – all the kids are grown now and celebrate with others these days. However, if he were to be home this birthday I would make him these! I know he would love them – and you will too!
2 Apples, cored & peeled
2 sticks butter
½ Cup white sugar
½ Cup brown sugar
¼ block of cream cheese softened
1 Cup Sprite
3 Tablespoons cinnamon
8 flour tortillas
Spread some cream cheese on a tortilla, being careful not to tear it
Lay on some apples
Sprinkle on some cinnamon
Roll it up like an enchilada and place in a 9×9 pan sprayed with non-stick spray.
Pre-heat over to 350F
Put the butter, white sugar and brown sugar in a pan along with any leftover cinnamon and over medium heat, stir until melted then pour over enchiladas.
Then, carefully pour the Sprite around the sides only of the enchiladas – like this:
Place, uncovered, in over for 30-40 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow cooling for a few minutes, and then place on a plate adding ice cream and a little caramel topping like I did! YUM!!!
Store covered in the fridge.
I am partying at Weekend Potluck this weekend!
Yum! These look amazing, and perfectly festive for Cinco de Mayo 🙂
Exactly what I’ve been looking for! I made something similar several years ago and was thinking about them last night-dreading looking for the recipe. These look and sound so much better and I have on hand all the ingredients! Will be fixing these tonight. Thanks!
YUM! Perfect for today
I’m going to try the enchiladas – the Sprite is interesting. Happy birthday to Lawyer Boy.
sprite, huh? This looks like fun! Happy bday to LB and how wonderful to have the memory of when you first met.
Yep – sprite – you will like it!
Happy birthday to Lawyer Boy! This looks delicious! I’d love to have them on my birthday, haha.
This ain’t apple pie, but THe Hubs would love this. If I weren’t so lazy and tired, I would run to the store now. Maybe tomorrow….LOL. Really great recipe, Kelli. I would prefer this over b-day cake any day. I am impressed with the whole state 4-H gig. That is an achievement.!!!
Yes it is an achievement but I sure didn’t know it at the time. I’ve learned. 🙂 These are really good – I don’t have cake on my BD – I always have chess pie!
Now these are how I want to end my Cinco de Mayo!!! What a fabulous dessert! Happy birthday to Lawyer boy!

The Sprite was unexpected but I can totally get behind tortillas wrapped around apples and then baked. Hope Lawyer Boy had an awesome birthday! He is blessed to have you as his stepmom but I’m sure he knows that!
Awww…thank you! The Sprite actually works in it really well and it doesn’t taste like pop when its cooked!
Love turning enchiladas into a dessert, it looks delicious. The addition of Sprite is an interesting twist but I have added Coke to slow cooker pork roast so why not? I’ll give it a try real soon. Thanks for sharing on Weekend Pot Luck.
Thank you Linda! It’s really tasty – hope you enjoy it. Please let me know!
