Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.

  • In a heavy large saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil to 375°F over medium heat. Use a deep-frying thermometer to monitor temperature.

  • Using tongs, place one tortilla in the oil for 5 seconds. Turn it over and hold in a curved shape with the tongs for 1 minute or until crisp and browned. Immediately remove from the oil, letting any excess drip off, and dip in the cinnamon-sugar to coat. Repeat with remaining tortillas and cinnamon-sugar.

  • In a large saucepan heat butter and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon over medium heat. Stir in apples, remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, and 3 tablespoons water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 minutes or until softened. In a small bowl combine cornstarch and remaining 2 tablespoons water. Slowly drizzle into hot apple mixture while stirring and continue to cook until apples are tender and filling is thickened. Continue to simmer 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  • Spoon filling into prepared shells and serve immediately. If desired, top with whipped topping and caramel topping, if desired.


If you don't have a frying thermometer, use a little scrap of tortilla to put in the oil and make sure it's at the correct temperature.
