I've been serving my dad along with the entire family "Enchilada" meals every 2 weeks or so. His first meal was on Father's Day and was a great beginning of Dad's favorite. I know he loves apple pie and so this had to be first on the list to create for dessert. They were a hit & Dad especially savored his every bite. Several people had 2 while others only indulged in 1, but all chose al la mode (North American) style with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, of course.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Apples with cinnamon sugar drizzled with caramel and wrapped in a crispy tortilla... yes, please! What is there not to love about this easy and delicious dessert? Top it off with some vanilla ice cream and you have a dessert fit for a king.

How To Make caramel apple pie taquitos

  • 1
    Dice up your apples with or without skin on and then saute in a pan with 1/4 stick of butter. Once cooked down & softened add your apple jelly & cinnamon.
  • 2
    Take your flour tortillas and place a few in a damp towel and microwave for about 10 seconds or so... just to soften them up and make easy to roll. Drizzle just a little caramel sauce down the center of tortilla and add about 1-2 tablespoons of apple mixture & then roll up.
  • 3
    Melt down the other 1/4 cup of butter in your pan that you are going to cook them in. Place your rolled apple taquitos in pan tightly up against one another. Once finished brush a little melted butter on to the tortillas and add your blended cinnamon/sugar mixture for the topping.

    You want these to cook so they get a crispy on the outside and nicely heated throughout. About 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
