What’s Cooking w/Trice: Mini Apple Pie Tacos

Hi Lovelies! It has been far too long since I’ve given you a great recipe but that changes today! I am back with a quick, easy, and delightful recipe that is perfect for fall and sure to be a hit with everyone in the family. These mini apple pie tacos are just the right size to indulge in and not feel guilty afterwards! The Envy™ apples I used to make these are delicious and the options for toppings are limitless. It is a taco, after all!

Before I get into how to make these delicious little treats, I have to tell you about the apples I used to make them and why they are so ideal for cooking and baking. Not only are Envy™ apples crunchy and refreshingly sweet, they are very slow to brown which makes presentation much nicer when using them to cook or bake. They are perfect for salads, charcuterie boards, and party platters. They’re a cross between Braeburn and Royal Gala apples and are non-GMO, grown naturally in Washington State and New Zealand. They are so tasty and easily my favorite type of apple! You can find them in Publix, Whole Foods, and Walmart. If you want to know if your local grocers carry them check here.

Envy Apples

These mini apple pie tacos take no time at all to make! You probably already have all of the necessary ingredients to make them in your pantry.

Street taco sized tortillas are great to use for this recipe but if you only have the large size tortillas, you can punch out smaller sizes with a cookie cutter like I did.

After coating the tortillas with butter, cinnamon, and sugar, you have to create the mini taco shells. To get the tortillas in the shape of tacos, hang them in between the racks of the oven or do like I did here and put them in between the spaces on the bottom of a muffin pan. Bake the shells in a 400 degree oven for 5-6 minutes or until the cinnamon and sugar have slightly caramelized. Once they are ready, let them cool before adding the filling.

While preparing the filling, try not to eat it directly from the skillet. The smell will be divine and very enticing.

These mini apple pie tacos are so easy to make! It would be an ideal baking activity to do with children. When it comes to the toppings, I left some plain, with just the apple filling and I topped the other half with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and chopped pecans. Either way, they were delicious. You can get really creative and add just about anything you’d like on top. Some other ideas that come to mind that I may try next time, include mini chocolate chips, candied bacon, and pistachios.

It was a really fun experience! I mean, who doesn’t love getting free samples while grocery shopping? I was really neat being on the other end!
