Simple Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake Tacos

Instead of homemade apple filling, ready – made apple pie filling can be used. However, I recommend homemade apple sauce.

Shells are made from tortillas, they´re fried in deep oil and coated in the mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. Cheesecake filling is made of cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla and powdered sugar.

Homemade apple sauce is so aromatic, since it´s made of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, corn starch, water and vanilla.

It´s a perfect combination, crunchy tortilla shells, creamy cheesecake filling and aromatic homemade apple sauce – three different tastes combined in a perfect dessert.

HOW TO PREPARE APPLE CHEESECAKE TACOS?

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside. Using 3.5 – 4 inch circle cutter, cut circles from tortillas. Heat 1 inch oil in a pan, the temperature should be medium. Put tortilla circles, using tongs, in the oil and fry for about 10-15 seconds, then turn the circles on the other side, fold them in half and fry until they become golden brown.

Take them out of the pan and wait for a couple of seconds for the extra oil to drain, then immediately put in the bowl with sugar and cinnamon. Cover the shells completely with this mixture. Put some of the mixture inside of the shell, as well.

Finally, place them on the upside down muffin tin. Repeat the same procedure with the rest of the circles. In a medium size dish, pour water, add cornstarch, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cook for about 2-3 minutes, at medium heat, until it thickens, stirring from time to time.
