Apple Pie Tacos

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In a heavy large saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil to 375 degrees F over medium heat. Use a deep-frying thermometer to monitor temperature.
  3. Using tongs, place one tortilla in the oil for 5 seconds. Turn it over and hold in a curved shape with the tongs for 1 minute or until crisp and browned. Immediately remove from the oil, letting any excess drip off, and dip in the cinnamon-sugar to coat. Repeat with remaining tortillas and cinnamon-sugar.
  4. In a large saucepan heat butter and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon over medium heat. Stir in apples, remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, and 3 tablespoons water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 minutes or until softened. In a small bowl combine cornstarch and remaining 2 tablespoons water. Slowly drizzle into hot apple mixture while stirring and continue to cook until apples are tender and filling is thickened. Continue to simmer 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  5. Spoon filling into prepared shells and serve immediately. If desired, top with whipped topping and caramel topping, if desired.

From the Test Kitchen

If you don't have a frying thermometer, use a little scrap of tortilla to put in the oil and make sure it's at the correct temperature.

Yes, you missed a step. In the ingredients list it tells you to buy the ready-made corn tortillas. That should make it much easier, lol.

I made these and they were so good. I made with the caramel and also used chocolate drizzled on another batch.

Great idea in theory... but how does mixing sugar and cinnamon make a tortilla?! you simply cannot fry a sugar and cinnamon mixture and make it into a "tortilla"! Unless I missed a very vital step in the video and/or instructions!
