Top 4 Apple Pie Tacos Recipes

These tacos’ shells are made from tortillas that have been crisp-fried with cinnamon sugar and cut into rounds with a cookie cutter. They can be prepared days in advance and only take about 20 seconds each.

If you are having a party, you can keep the filling warm in a small slow cooker with the shells beside and people can fill them as they like, or set a mini muffin tin upside down and cover it with a pretty cloth napkin as a holder (that is what I did in the photos above, worked perfectly!). I made a homemade filling but you can definitely use canned filling to make these quickly.

New: I’ve added my own easy stove-top recipe for homemade apple pie filling to the website; it makes the same amount as one can of store-bought pie filling.

  • ¼ cup (½ stick) salted butter (melted)
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 6 (4.5 inch) street taco flour tortillas
  • 20 ounce can apple pie filling
  • ⅓ cup caramel sauce
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional garnish)
  • Extra caramel sauce (optional garnish)


  1. Place an upside-down cupcake or muffin tin on the counter and preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the melted butter in a shallow bowl for dipping.
  3. Brown sugar and cinnamon should be thoroughly combined and all lumps broken up in a second shallow bowl. Set a small plate next to it.
  4. Each tortilla should be dipped into the melted butter and coated on both sides. Let the excess drip off while gently shaking the tortilla.
  5. Spread some of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the buttered tortilla that has been placed on a plate.
  6. Repeat on the other side of the tortilla by gently shaking the extra sugar back into the bowl. Both sides of your tortilla will be covered in a thick layer of cinnamon sugar.
  7. To create a taco, place the tortilla between the two muffin tin indentations.
  8. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  9. The “tacos” should be baked for 5-7 minutes, or until they have slightly puffed and are holding their shape but are not yet golden brown.
  10. Place the apple pie filling in a medium mixing bowl and, using a spoon, knife, or kitchen shears, chop any large apple slices into bite-sized pieces while the tortillas are baking.
  11. Add the caramel sauce and combine everything thoroughly by stirring.
  12. Scoop in one or two generous spoonfuls of the apple pie filling mixture after taking the partially baked shells out of the oven and popping any bubbles inside. A sufficient amount of filling is desired, but not one that causes the taco to overflow.
  13. Reheat the tin in the oven for an additional three to five minutes, or until the tacos are crisp-golden and the apple pie filling is warm.
  14. After removing the shells from the oven, let them cool for three to five minutes.
  15. Serve warm, topped with optional drizzles of caramel and vanilla ice cream.

Apple Pie TACOS! – La Cooquette


Is it better to cook apple pie filling first?

The apple pie filling is never undercooked or watery because it is precooked before baking. Additionally, it’s a fantastic method for preventing the dreaded space between the baked top crust and the filling.

Why is cornstarch added to apple pie?

Flour, cornstarch, and tapioca are ingredients that thicken pie fillings and prevent them from being a watery mess. Apples release less liquid than berries do, so they require less thickener. Flour and cornstarch both work well in an apple pie.

How do you make apple pie filling not runny?

Apples should have most of their juice removed, then the thickened juice should be added back to the filling. Partially pre-cook the filling to evaporate its excess juice. Experiment with different thickeners beyond flour. Vent the pie’s top crust to let juice steam out.

What is the secret to apple pie?

The best kept secret for making apple pie, however, is to combine your apples with the remaining ingredients (flour, butter, light and brown sugars, spices), and let it sit overnight. The sugar will cause the apples to release liquid, which is essential for a moist, not soggy, filling.
