Apple Turnovers

You will need:
4-5 cooking apples ( I used a combo of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious)
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
splash of apple juice
small flour tortillas
2 cups vegetable oil-heated in large frying pan

Cut up apples into bite size pieces and mix in cinnamon, sugar and apple juice. You can add about a tablespoon H2O-if you don't have any juice. Cook over low heat until apples are soft and liquid has thickened. About and hour or so.
Now you are ready to make your turnover. Using a pastry brush-paint around the edge of a tortilla with water. You can also use a spray bottle to spray the edges/ The goal is about an inch or two around the edge being very moist. spoon about 1 1/2 Tablespoon of cooked apples in the middle. Fold over with about an half an inch under-lap. With a fork fold back over the extra little bit and crimp the edge together. This is a little tricky and if a little bit of filling oozes out-don't freak-Just put it back!
Now fry in hot oil ( Med-High)about 3 min a side. Only turn once. Drain on paper towels. While still hot-sprinkle w/ a little sugar or cinnamon sugar. Serve warm plain or w/ vanilla ice cream.

yeild: 8-10 turnovers. best served hot or warm. Also can be reheated the next morning for b'fast.

The turnovers would also be great with pears. Cherry filling would also work well.
