Think back long and hard to your childhood.  Those summers when you would travel with your family for long distances to see the grandfolks.  It was always worth it because the light at the end of the tunnel was your grandma's world-famous apple pie. Sitting there in the heat with not much to do besides pick on your siblings was all worth it when you smelled that sheer deliciousness wafting through the house.  Well this recipe will taste almost the same but it sure isn't your grandma's apple pie.

  • Tortillas (6 inch size is optimal)
  • Whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 4 apples (any variety) skinned and then sliced into chunks
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • Oil to fry the tortillas
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of combo of cinnamon and sugar


  1. Take a saucepan and add the water, nutmeg, apple chunks and sugar in it.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together and heat on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Make sure to stir frequently.
  3. Take the mixture off of the heat once the apples are beginning to soften.  You may need to add a little water or cornstarch if the sauce needs to be thickened.  The sauce will be done when the sauce has thickened.
  4. Add oil to a skillet and heat on medium to medium high heat.  Once the oil is hot add a tortilla to it. Pull the tortilla out when it is brown on both sides.
  5. Once you have browned all of the tortillas, add the cinnamon and sugar mixture to both sides of the tortillas.
  6. Take the tortillas and fill them with the apple mixture.  Once they are to your desired filling, sprinkle some more of the cinnamon and sugar mixture and serve.
