For the Taco Shells:
6 small flour tortillas
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the Apple Filling:
3 apples, peeled, cored, and diced (use your favorite variety)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional, for thickening)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Brush each flour tortilla with melted butter on both sides.
In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
Sprinkle both sides of the tortillas with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Drape each tortilla over two bars of your oven rack, creating a taco shell shape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and let them cool to maintain their shape.
In a skillet, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.
Add the diced apples, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Stir to coat the apples evenly.
Cook the apples for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender and caramelized.
If you prefer a thicker filling, stir in a teaspoon of cornstarch.
Remove the skillet from the heat, and stir in the lemon juice.
Fill each cinnamon-sugar taco shell with a generous spoonful of the warm apple filling.
Serve your Apple Pie Tacos as they are, or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top for extra indulgence.
You can adjust the level of sweetness in the taco shells by increasing or decreasing the amount of cinnamon-sugar.
Be creative with your taco shell shapes – create classic taco shapes or unique designs.
