Apple Pie Taquitos
Because it’s a weekday, let’s celebrate with something sweet, why not. And because these apple pie taquitos are so easy to make, that you can make them on a weekday, in the morning, after work, whatever strikes your fancy. But even better than that, these taquitos are so good, you’ll thank me.
I have to tell you, I had fun making these taquitos. They only require 5 simple ingredients; apple pie filling, sugar, cinnamon, butter and tortillas. All the makings of a great apple pie, but in an adorable taquito form. I have to admit the idea is simply genius.
What Are Taquitos?
It’s essentially just a rolled up taco, that’s it! You fill a tortilla with whatever filling your heart desires, roll it up and crisp it. I took some creative license today and stuffed these full of apple pie filling, we’re turning savory into sweet and believe me it’s beyond worth it.
I drizzled mine with some caramel sauce because that’s just how I roll. Not saying you need the caramel sauce, but I just think of ways to take something amazing and make them more decadent.
