Not my recipe, but found this..... I think it sounds close to the original.
This is simple and easy. Make a cheesecake and add cooked apples to the cake. (I have used apples out of canned pie filling, taking just the apples from the can. Omit the excess syrup filling.) After it firms up, cut into pieces.
Wrap in a flour tortilla. Tie it up with string to hold it together so it will not come undone during frying.
Fry them in oil at 350 degrees F. Fry until golden brown and serve it with caramel sauce. You can use caramel topping for ice cream or you can make it yourself using soft caramels. Melt them using a double broiler (this comes the closest to the caramel we use for the chimis at Applebee's).
