Ingredients

Tortilla Cups

  • 3 flour tortillas TortillaLand® recommended
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon sugar store-bought or homemade (see note)

Apple Filling

  • 3 large Granny Smith Apples chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar store-bought or homemade (see note)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • whipped cream optional
  • caramel sauce optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F. Set aside a standard muffin pan.
  • Place 3 tortillas on a work surface. Brush each side with melted butter and dust with cinnamon sugar. Stack them and then cut into quarters.
  • Place two pieces in each muffin cup so there's about 50% overlap.
  • Bake 8-10 min until golden and crisp. Meanwhile, you can make the filling.
  • Mix the chopped apples with lemon juice and cinnamon sugar. Place frying pan over medium heat. Melt butter and sauté the apple mixture 3-5 minutes until soft.
  • Remove cups from the oven and cool slightly. Spoon the apple filling so each cup is 3/4 full. Top with optional whipped cream and caramel sauce before serving.

Notes

  • Cinnamon Sugar: To make your own, combine 2 tablespoons of white sugar with 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
  • Make Ahead: You can make the shells up to one day ahead and store at room temperature in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. They also freeze well for up to 3 months. When it's time to serve, spoon in the filling.
