Texas Fritters

It's apple harvesting time. Yes, I'm on a diet but The Clone is not. She's been busy in the kitchen and whipped up this tasty Texas recipe. My husband says they are delicious. The Clone is pretty proud. She dreamed up the recipe herself.

Texas Fritter

Medium flour tortilla
1/4 cup unsweetened apples (canned)
1 tbsp jalopeno jelly
1 tsp brown sugar
oil for frying

Spread jelly over tortilla. Add apples. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Roll tortilla tightly, making sure sides are sealed. Fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Here's my version of what I can do with the apples.

Pick apple from tree. Wash it off. Eat.

Wah, The Clone's recipe sounds much tastier than mine.

Do you have any decadent dessert recipes to share? I can't eat, but I can drool.


  1. My fav still remains apple strudel, but I did just see a recipe for apple cake and cinnamon chocolate chip cake, both by Penzey's Spices. I've never had either, but they look delicious!


  2. I just discovered you can make chocolate waffles from my Medifast meals. It is so yummy even with sugar free syrup.

  3. Those Texas Fritters sound delicious. I might have to try them. But, what about the jalopeno jelly? What does it do to the taste? This is a non-spicy person!
    I won't be able to can my apples. I would probably fall out of the apple tree if I climbed it to pick my apples! lol I do make a pretty tasty regular old apple pie.

    One of my favorite desserts is Banana Split Dessert. Really good!

  4. I bet you could use apple butter in place for the jalopena jelly.

  5. Mmmm apple butter. Now I want fried chicken and drop biscuits at the Nashville House in Nashville, Indiana. I haven't been there in years!

    One of my favorite desserts that I routinely make Land o' Lakes' Mandarin Marmalade Cream Cake. It's fabulous for spring and summer events because it's so light and the mandarin/marmalade flavor is subtle. Everybody always asks me what the frosting is and I just say, "Whipped cream." Shhhhh. I'm giving away all my secrets here.


  6. Geez, all these comments have made me hungry!! It's after dinner and I have a yen for something sweet but need to stay out of the kitchen. I'm dreaming of that Mandarin marmalade cream cake tonight.

  7. Both recipes sound good. I love apple crepes with fresh cream... I sauté the apples and then make the crepes... delicious.

  8. I like your last statement "I can't eat, bit I can drool". Mine goes something like "I can't cook, but I can eat". Lol my mom doesn't appreciate it as much her being the cook. Occasionally I have been known to be spontaneously helpful, cooking up a storm in the kitchen aided by recipes and a critical eye or two of course. No recipes to share but those Texas fritters sure look good.

  9. Not sure if this counts as decadent and I don't remember where I got the recipe, but it's no bake and ever so tasty!


    1 cup peanut butter
    1 small package French vanilla instant pudding (dry mix only)
    1 regular size container whipped topping (I use cool whip)
    1 cup milk

    Put peanut butter, pudding mix, milk and 1/2 the whipped topping into a mixing bowl and mix with an electric mixer until well blended.

    Pour into a graham cracker crust (can be bought pre-made – I use the Oreo cookie crust, so think of a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup!) then top with the other half of the whipped topping. Chill for at least one hour then serve
