Use your favorite recipe for flour tortillas, or make dough from the recipe on the Tortilla mix package. Divide the dough into 4, 2-inch balls. Roll each into a 6-inch tortilla. Dust with flour, cover with plastic wrap and set aside. In a saucepan, place apples with enough water to cover. Add lemon juice. Cook over high heat until boiling 5 minutes. Add sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and walnuts; continue cooking over low heat until slightly thickened. Combine cornstarch and water and add to mixture, stirring until thick. Remove from heat. Lay out tortillas; dust off excess flour. Spoon on 2 tablespoons of the apple mixture down the middle of each tortilla. Fold one side of the tortilla over the mixture; then fold the remaining side over. Fold in the ends and seal by moisting the tortillas with a little water. Bake in a preheated, 400 degree F oven until lightly browned. Remove and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
