Spring is almost here and the weather is slightly warming up. During this time of year, I love warm treats. They give so much comfort to the chilly air.

I love unique and tasty desserts. These Apple Pie Taquitos are just that! They stuffed with an incredible apple pie filling and rolled in a crispy cinnamon-sugar coated tortilla. My family and guests went crazy for these :)

When you top it with ice cream and caramel it makes for such a delicious bite!

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 3½ Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoon cold water
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 cups peeled and chopped apples, chopped into bite-size bites (I use a combination of granny smith and gala)
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1¾ cups sugar
  • 12 (9-inch) tortillas
Taquito coating
  • ⅓ cup melted butter, to brush tortillas with
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Toppings
  • Vanilla ice cream to serve with
  • Caramel ice cream topping to drizzle over the top
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter and add apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, lemon juice, orange juice, salt and sugar. Mix well and cook for about 5 minutes until apples begin to become tender. Add the cornstarch mixture to the apples and cook until thickened about 3 minutes.
To assemble
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small mixing bowl. Have melted butter ready for the assembly.
  4. Soften tortillas if needed in microwave for about 35 seconds.
  5. With a pastry brush, brush one side of the tortilla with the melted butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the top. Flip the tortilla over and place ⅓ cup apple mixture length-wise down the tortilla toward the right hand side. As tightly as possible roll the tortilla up and place onto cookie sheet. I could only fit about 7 at a time on my cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 13 minutes or until tortillas begin to brown and crisp up.
  7. Place one on a plate and top with ice cream and serve with a caramel drizzle over the ice cream.

 Enjoy!

    "When you top it with ice cream and caramel it makes for such a delicious bite!" Nikki, you are a true genius. I've never seen anything like this (maybe it's not that common here, I'm from the Netherlands) but now I wish I had! I'm a total dessert person so your blog makes me so happy!
    Can I ask you, what does the orange juice add? Is it for flavour or sweetness or something else? :)

    Greetings!

    Wow. This dessert is brilliant. I can already taste the ice cream with the apple pie filling. Yum.

    Is this flour tortillas or corn tortillas?

  4. Renee

    Can the be prepped earlier and refrigerated then baked when ready?
