Fried Apple Pies
6 – 8 large apples, thinly sliced
(I prefer to mix red delicious & granny smith apples for a sweet/tart taste)
1- 1½ cups sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
¼ stick of butter
10 –12 flour tortillas
Place all ingredients except tortillas in a large saucepan.
Cook over med. heat until apples are tender but not mushy.
If juice is thin, combine 1 ½ tsp. cornstarch w about a ¼ cup of water; mix well.
Pour this slowly into the apples while stirring; juice will thicken.
Remove from heat & let cool for about 10 minutes.
In each flour tortilla, place a heaping tablespoon of apple filling; spread to about ½ inch from edge only on ½ the side.
Moisten fingers with water & run them around the entire edge of tortilla.
Fold top half of tortilla over & crimp edges together with a fork.
Turn over and crimp the other side.
In a regular size skillet, pour oil about ¾ in. deep.
Heat on med. heat.
Place pies 2 @ at a time in oil & brown on each side.
Drain on paper towel.
**May serve warm w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Pairs Well With
This recipe is one that my Grandmother taught me when I was growing up. Of course, she mixed and rolled homemade dough for the pie crusts. I found flour tortillas work just as well and alot easier. :)
