1.) Place yams, pineapple (with liquid), raisins, sugars and cinnamon in a heavy pan. Cook on medium flame for about 15 minutes or until very soft and well cooked. Mash until mixture is smooth.

2.) Brush center of each tortilla with butter leaving a one-inch border. Place mashed filling (about 1.5 oz) on one half of the tortilla. Brush the edges with water and fold over to make a half circle. Seal edges by pressing firmly with the tines of a fork. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
