Apple Pie Tacos

Apple pie tacos are a creative and delicious twist on traditional apple pie. They combine the flavors of apple pie filling with a crispy taco shell for a delightful dessert. Here’s a recipe to make apple pie tacos:


For the Apple Pie Filling:

3.5 cups of peeled, cored, and diced apples
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water

For the Taco Shells:

6 small flour tortillas
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For Serving (Optional):

Vanilla ice cream
Whipped cream
Caramel sauce

Prepare the Apple Pie Filling:

In a large skillet, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
Add the diced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the sugar has dissolved, about 5-7 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice and the cornstarch-water mixture. Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
Make the Taco Shells:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Brush each flour tortilla with melted butter on both sides.
Mix the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over both sides of the tortillas.
Gently fold each tortilla in half to create a taco shell shape.

Place the folded tortillas in the oven directly on the oven rack. Bake for about 11-13 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown.
Remove the taco shells from the oven and let them cool slightly.
Assemble the Apple Pie Tacos:

Fill each taco shell with a generous spoonful of the prepared apple pie filling.

You can serve your apple pie tacos warm as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Optionally, you can also drizzle some caramel sauce and add a dollop of whipped cream for extra decadence.

Serve your apple pie tacos immediately and enjoy this delightful dessert.
Apple pie tacos are a fun and creative way to enjoy the classic flavors of apple pie. They are perfect for parties or family gatherings, and the combination of crispy taco shells and sweet apple filling is sure to be a hit!
