DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil until it "speaks" when you sprinkle water into it. Cut each tortilla in half, then cut each half into 4 wedges.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish with another paper towel lined dish right next to it.
  • Put 2-4 tortilla wedges into the hot oil and cook until light brown on each side, flipping only once (this should take about 1 minute). Remove immediately from oil one by one and completely cover in cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides before placing on towel lined dish to cool and drain.
  • When finished with crispas, toss together diced apples and lemon juice.
  • Put apples, lemon juice and amaretto into a medium-sized skillet and cook over medium heat until apples just start to get tender and barely break down.
  • Add brown sugar and stir well until evenly distributed. Remove pan from heat.
  • Beat heavy whipping cream (works best in a chilled bowl) just until stiff.
  • Gradually add sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form.
  • On a plate or platter, set out each crispa individually. Top with a teaspoon or more of apple mixture, then a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
