How to make Caramel Apple Pie Taquitos?

Put a few tablespoons of apple pie filling on one side of a tortilla (look at the photo), roll tight, spread butter over the tortilla and roll into a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Place the tortillas in a 9×13 inch pan or baking sheet, greased with butter. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining tortillas and apple pie filling. Bake them at 350 F for 15-20 min or until tortillas are golden brown. Drizzle with caramel sauce before serving. These Apple Pie Taquitos can be served with vanilla ice – cream or whipped topping.

How to store the leftovers? Keep them refrigerated in an airtight container for no longer then 3 days. Make sure to heat them in a microwave oven or an oven before serving.  

Can Caramel Apple Pie Taquitos be frozen? Yes, they can, but before you bake them. Make the taquitos, cover the baking sheet and keep in the freezer for up to 2 months, then defrost before baking. 

Can other types of pie fillings be used? Absolutely! You can use the filling that you like. 

Can homemade apple pie filling be used? If you don’t like canned apple pie filling, feel free to use a homemade one.

Can I use brown sugar? Yes, you can. I recommend light brown sugar. 

Is caramel sauce necessary for this recipe? No! If you don’t like it, these taquitos can be served without the caramel sauce, with vanilla ice-cream or whipped topping, instead. 

TIPS and TRICKS: 

Use soft, flour tortillas for this recipe, not the corn flour ones.

If you prefer tortillas to be extra crunchy, bake them for few more minutes. In that case, stay close to the oven and check the taquitos occasionally and don’t let them get overburnt.
