There’s no doubt about it: we at TipBuzz have apple pie reputation to live up to. Last year our Apple Pie Fries recipe went viral on YouTube with 1.5 million views, and then Apple Pie Nachos followed on Facebook in October. This time these Baked Apple Pie Tacos went viral on Instagram — they’re easy to make with just 6 ingredients, and yet so yummy!

Apple Pie Tacos served with whipped cream and caramel sauce

You can serve them as a snack, a dessert or as a great snack at your next party. They’re also a great Game Day recipe! The truth is that we haven’t been able to stop making them ever since creating the recipe! They’re so addictive and only take 15 minutes to make using a circular cookie cutter on tortillas. As easy as apple pie, right?

To make the circles out of the tortillas, we recommend using a 3-4 inch circular cookie cutter to press circles out of each tortilla. It’s a great activity for little helpers if you have kids around…

Here's how to cut tortillas for Apple Pie Tacos

The next step is to add some melted butter, cinnamon and sugar to coat the tortilla pieces. Probably the most fun is how to make the cool taco shape. All you need to do it turn a standard 12-cup muffin pan upside down, and the tortilla pieces fit neatly in between to create the perfect taco shape. You can get 24 tacos from one pan!

Just pop them into the oven and bake for 6 minutes. This cinnamon sugar caramelizes in the oven as they bake, creating a totes irresistible flavor.

One thing to love about these is they’re baked, so they’re a bit healthier than their fried cousins with less cleanup to boot.

For the apple filling, just saute up some chopped apples with butter, cinnamon and sugar in a frying pan. If you want a shortcut, canned apple pie filling will work just fine. Then spoon the filling into the tacos to assemble.

For serving it’s best to put the tacos on a rectangular plate shoulder-to-shoulder to help them sit upright. You can then drizzle the optional caramel sauce on the serving plate and top with whipped cream. By this point you’ll need to issue a serious drool alert!!

You have to admit this is an apple dessert recipe that is much easier than apple pie, but just as yummy. Try them for yourself, and see for yourself. Happy baking!
