Fried Apple Pies
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: apples 20 frying 3

  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ stick of butter
  • 10 –12 flour tortillas
DIRECTIONS
  1. Place all ingredients except tortillas in a large saucepan.
  2. Cook over med. heat until apples are tender but not mushy.
  3. If juice is thin, combine 1 ½ tsp. cornstarch w about a ¼ cup of water; mix well.

  7. In each flour tortilla, place a heaping tablespoon of apple filling; spread to about ½ inch from edge only on ½ the side.

  9. Fold top half of tortilla over & crimp edges together with a fork.
  10. Turn over and crimp the other side.
  11. In a regular size skillet, pour oil about ¾ in. deep.
  12. Heat on med. heat.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
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!
