Fried Apple Tortilla Napoleon with Carmel Sauce


Oh this was so good.  I was frying tortillas for the haystack part of the creamy chicken chilli  read here:  http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2015/02/creamy-chicken-chilli-with-haystack-of.html

and decided to try a dessert.  So this is what I came up with.  Here is how I made it:

I used this antique square biscuit/cookie cutter - excellent for scones as well - and cut out the tortillas - extra sides were fried for haystack noodles.  





Fry the squares in some oil - this doesn't take long - while hot sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.



For the fried apples, I put 1/4 stick of butter in a pan, when melted add the sliced apples.  I added cinnamon sugar and apples pie spice.  Cover, leave on low and let apples soften.





How I made the carmel sauce:  I put 1/2 stick butter in pan, when melted I added 1/2 Cup brown sugar.  Cook till bubbly add 1/4 C heavy cream and a splash of vanilla - stir till smooth.  Turn heat to low - use when ready.  





Assemble your napoleons - first a crust, pile on apples and drizzle with sauce - repeat - make 3 layers.  This was so good, Al loved it!  



Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Oh that looks delicious, Jacky! I love your recipes! The fried tortillas would be good by themselves! Of course with the cinnamon and sugar on top! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from snowy Bama!
