Apple Pie Taquitos – crispy, sweet, and delicious, these taquitos are simple to make. All the makings of a great apple pie, in a fun taquito form. Genius!
Because it’s the start of a new week, let’s celebrate with something sweet. And because these apple pie taquitos are so simple 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 am actually happy it’s the start of a new week because I have some amazing recipes to share with you this week, foods that I’ve had on my road trip and inspired me to attempt making them myself. It’ll be a great week in my kitchen this week so I’m happy to share these recipes with you and hope you’ll come and share in the fun.
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.
Nothing makes me happier than simple recipes with great ingredients that magically transform into delicious dishes. And these taquitos don’t disappoint. They are so yummy and crispy and sweet and cinnamony.
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.
Even some drizzled chocolate sauce would go, nutella, maybe a sprinkle of powdered sugar, or some shaved chocolate, and a dollop of whipped cream. I think I better stop there before I run down to the kitchen and finish the rest of these off.
I even made a video for you guys which you can take a look at here:
