What can I say……Not good for you, but simply delicious! Cut this recipe in half, unless you’re having a big party.
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour
8 cups tart apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup water
1 16 oz jar caramel ice cream topping
2 tablespoons butter
20 – 8 inch flour tortillas
8-10 cups oil for frying
Cinnamon and sugar mix
optional Ice cream


Stir together sugar, cinnamon, and flour then set aside. Bring apples and water to a boil, cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook 10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat and gently stir in sugar and flour mixture, caramel topping and butter. Do not over stir. Cool to lukewarm. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons filling on each tortilla. Fold end up and sides in, over filling, then roll like a burrito. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks. Tortillas roll easier when they are fresh, and when each one is warmed 10-15 seconds in microwave oven. Using a deep heavy pan, pour oil to 2 inch depth. Heat to 360 degrees. Using tongs, place 2-3 empanadas in hot oil and fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and remove toothpicks. If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Serve warm with ice cream.
