How to Make Tortilla Apple Pie Cups

For this recipe, you want to start by making the shells first, and then add the apple filling after baking.

To make the shells, brush the tortillas with melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Then, using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the tortillas into quarters. To make each shell, overlay two quarter pieces into a muffin pan cup. Then bake for 8-10 minutes at 400°F.

Spooning the apple pie filling into the tortilla cups

While they’re baking, you can make the filling by simply sautéing chopped apples in a skillet with more cinnamon sugar and some lemon juice. They apples will become soft in about 5 minutes or so. Note: You can also use canned filling to save time if you prefer, but you’ll need to cut the slices into a dice to fit easily into the shells.

Once the shells are crispy, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Then spoon the apple filling into each shell so it’s at least 3/4 full.

Before serving, you can also top with some whipped cream and caramel sauce. Alternatively, they’re fabulous with ice cream too.
