9 Tbs. brown sugar, divided
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 c. water
2 Tbs. tequila or dark rum (optional)
3 flour tortillas (10-inch or burrito-style)
2 lg. bananas, peeled, cut in coins
3 Tbs. chopped walnuts
2 c. vegetable oil
3 c. premium vanilla ice cream

In a small saucepan, bring 6 Tbs. of brown sugar, water, butter to a boil. Stir in liquor; simmer to blend flavors, about 1 min. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Place one flour tortilla on a work surface. Place 1/3 of the banana slices just below the center, forming the fruit into a log; sprinkle with 1 Tbs. brown sugar & 1 Tbs. walnuts. Fold both sides of the tortilla over the filling, then fold bottom of the tortilla over the filling and roll it over to form a packet. Secure with a toothpick.
Repeat with remaining tortillas, bananas, sugar and nuts. (You can make ahead to this point & hold at room temperature for 1 hour.)
Meanwhile, warm oil in a Dutch oven set over medium heat until it reaches 350 on a candy or deep-fry thermometer. Add all three stuffed tortillas. Fry, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
Transfer to paper towels, lightly blot surface oil, remove toothpicks and halve on the diagonal with a serrated knife.
Spoon 1 Tbs. butter sauce in the bottom of each of six shallow bowls. Place half a tortilla and 1/2 c. of ice cream in each pool of sauce. Drizzle with remaining sauce, and serve immediately.
