Ingredients

  • 5 large flour tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar divided
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • 4 Granny Smith apples peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce optional
  • whipped cream optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Set aside a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • Using a 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut 4-5 circles from each tortilla. Repeat until you have about 20 in total.
  • In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons melted butter with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • Place one tortilla circle into the bowl and toss until coated. Repeat for the remaining circles.
  • Flip the muffin tin upside down. Insert one tortilla piece in between every two muffin cups until all tacos are in place.
  • Bake for 5-6 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile, mix the chopped apples with lemon juice and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.
  • Place a skillet on medium heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add the apple mixture and sauté for 3-4 minutes until soft.
  • Remove tacos from oven and spoon apple mixture into them. Top with optional caramel sauce and whipped cream to serve.

Notes

  • * You can substitute a canned apple pie filling if you wish. Use a 21-ounce can and chop roughly into pieces before use.
  • Make ahead tip: You can bake the taco shells and prepare the filling one day in advance. When it's time to serve, warm the filling and assemble the tacos.
