Serves 12-14 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time apples 20 frying 3


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.

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!
