Apple Pie Tacos served with whipped cream and caramel sauce

Apple Pie Tacos are a fun twist on apple pie. Because they’re baked instead of fried, they’re easy to make. We’ve served them on their own for dessert and also as a party snack with tons of compliments.

You just need six ingredients and 15 minutes to make them, and you can make them ahead of time. That’s about as easy as it gets! Just be sure to make enough as they’re totally addictive…

This recipe includes a homemade apple filling that’s easy to make. You can also use canned filling if you prefer to save time.

To make the circles out of the tortillas, grab a large circular cookie cutter and cut circles out of each tortilla. To save time, stack the tortillas in threes.

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 making the taco shapes in an upside-down muffin pan. A great activity for little helpers if you have kids around…

The tortilla pieces fit neatly in between to create the perfect taco shape, and … Voilà – you get 24 tacos from a 12-cup muffin pan! Pop them in the oven for 6 minutes and the cinnamon sugar caramelizes as they bake for an 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 too.

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 side-by-side 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 it’s a drool alert!!

As easy as apple pie 🙂  Try them and see for yourself. Happy baking!
