2 6 inch flour tortillas
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 pint strawberries, divided use
= to 1 ounce Grand Marnier
2 1 ounce squares semisweet chocolate square
canola oil, or vegetable oil
ground cinnamon
1 apple, or pear, cored and sliced
1 banana, peeled and sliced
1 ounce brandy

Cream together brown sugar and cream cheese. Add sour cream and vanilla extract, continuing to mix until fluffy and completely blended. Set aside.

To prepare strawberry coulis: reserve 1 or 2 strawberries for garnish. Put the rest of the berries and the Grand Marnier in a blender and puree until liquid. Add sugar to taste, strain and set aside.

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler (or use a microwave) and keep warm.

Pour about 1 inch oil in a skillet and heat to 375 degrees. Fry the tortillas, one at a time and turning once, until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Blot dry with paper towels and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Keep warm.

Place apple (or pear) and banana in a cold, unoiled skillet, and place over a medium flame. Pour brandy and flambe (see note), tossing until flames die out. Immediately add the cream cheese mixture and continue stirring over heat until the mixture bubbles.

Pour the strawberry coulis on a large plate, spreading until surface is coated. Center one of the tortillas over the sauce, then spoon on the warm fruit filling. Top with remaining tortilla. Put the melted chocolate in a squirt bottle and drizzle chocolate over the top. (Alternately, but with less control, you can drizzle it from the side of a spoon.)
Garnish with reserved berries, whole or sliced, and serve immediately.

Note: To flambe the fruit, pour the brandy over the fruit, then strike a match or a taper to the edge of the pan, standing back to avoid any flames. When the fire subsides, stir so that all the fruit is exposed to the burning brandy.
