Get ready for a seriously fun dessert with ideas from our popular Apple Pie Tacos and Apple Pie Nachos recipes. All you need is six simple ingredients: tortillas, apples, butter, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.
The Best Apples for Apple Pie
I’ve made apple pie with many different apples, but always seem to come back to Granny Smith apples.
These green apples retain their texture, so they don’t become mushy or watery while baking. Also, Granny Smith apples give the best flavor, as they’re pleasantly tart. The best part? You can find them almost everywhere and they’re budget-friendly.
Keep in mind that fresh apples have the most flavor, so look for whatever pie apples are in season when shopping.
How to Make Apple Pie Filling
Homemade apple pie filling is so much better than store bought, and you can make it in just 15 minutes. Once you’ve got your apples, peel and core them before chopping into 3/4-inch chunks.
Then simply grab a large skillet such as a cast iron or nonstick pan. Then sauté the apples with the butter, sugar and cinnamon for about 8-10 minutes until the apples are starting to soften.
If the apples are rendering lots of juice, then sprinkle in a few teaspoons of cornstarch or flour to help the filling to thicken.
How to Make Sheet Pan Apple Pie Bake
Once your filling is ready, you can assemble the sheet pan apple pie bake. Arrange about 7 flour tortillas in a flower petal pattern around a medium baking sheet with some overlap, ensuring at least a third of the tortillas are spilling over off the pan. Make sure there are no gaps, and then spoon the filling on top.
Finally fold the tortilla flaps inward to cover the apple pie filling like this:
Then simply sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly on top. It’ll help caramelize into a delicious golden color while baking…
