"We have been making a similar recipe for years using wontons and mixing the cherry pie filling with cream cheese before spooning the filling in.... YUMMY!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2011 Edited Oct. 11, 2013

"The first time I made these I followed the recipe. The next time I made them I added a little almond extract to the cherry pie filling before I filled the tortillas. Then after frying them I drizzle them with powdered sugar glaze OR canned cream cheese frosting AND toasted sliced almondsI Wow, what a difference! 5 stars!!!"
