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. :)

Another family favorite here!


  • 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.
  • Preparing pies:
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
