Apple Pie Tacos
Apple Pie Tacos are stuffed with apple filling and cheesecake inside crunchy taco shell made with a delicious cinnamon sugar mixture. This is a perfect fall dessert recipe that will go quick!
I love making new recipes with apples in the fall. Since one of our favorite activities is apple picking, we always need to find fun recipes to use all of our pickings. You’re going to love this fun fall treat.
Apple Pie Tacos
We are going to make these apple and cheesecake filled dessert tacos by first making a cinnamon shell, then filling with a homemade cheesecake filling and topping it off with apple pie filling. It’s a simple recipe with big flavor.
This is a treat that people really adore because they taste great and they just look so cute. Everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
Here Are The Ingredients You’ll Need
For the shells:
- Flour Tortillas.
For the filling:
- Cream Cheese. Let sit out to room temperature.
- Heavy Cream. Heavy cream has one of the highest butterfat content than the other creams.
- Vanilla. Always try to use real vanilla extract and not imitation, if you can.
- Powdered Sugar.
- Lemon Zest. To make zest, rub a fresh lemon along a grater.
- Apple Pie Filling. Using the can filling makes this recipe a lot easier and quicker.
How To Make Apple Cheesecake Tacos
- Taco shells. Cut the tortillas into smaller circles with a cookie cutter. Dip them in butter, then cinnamon and sugar and bake them in an upside down muffin tin.
- Cheesecake. Mix up your cheesecake batter and let it chill in the fridge for about an hour.
- Fill. Put your cheesecake into a piping bag and fill all of your tacos. Then scoop some of your apple pie filling on top of the cheesecake. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar and enjoy.
See, it’s pretty simple, right? I just adore recipes that look so creative and pretty but don’t take me a lot of time in the kitchen.
Store these in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week. These are best enjoyed the day they are made since the crisp cinnamon shell can start to get soft and soggy after a few days.
Serve these up to celebrate the first day of Fall, on Thanksgiving or really anytime you feel like a tasty treat!
