Paleo Apple Pie Taquitos

I’m always looking for a reason to use our Apple Pie Spice blend in the fall. I will often make an apple crisp because it’s a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of apple pie, but with significantly less work involved.

 

 

One day while perusing Pinterest, I saw a few photos of Apple Pie Taquitos. I had never thought to make dessert taquitos, but the idea sounded really delicious, so I thought I would give it a try!

 

 

I knew I wanted to use Siete tortillas for the wraps, and usually use the Cassava ones because I think they have a really great texture, but you can use any of Siete tortillas that you prefer.

 

 

I first made a delicious apple pie filling on the stove top with butter, organic granny smith apples, maple sugar, our Apple Pie Spice, vanilla extract, and a little arrowroot powder to thicken the sauce.

 

 

Once the filling was ready, I heated the tortillas in the microwave so they were more pliable. I put a small amount along one end of the tortilla, and rolled it up, and placed it into a buttered baking dish. Once I had all of the tortillas filled and rolled, I brushed the top with butter, sprinkled some of our Cinnamon Sugar Cookie blend on top, and baked them in the oven until the tortillas were nice and crispy on top.

 

 

We topped the taquitos with vanilla ice cream. They were so fun and easy to make, and really delicious!

Ingredients

Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Preheat your oven to bake at 350 degrees.
  2. Peel and chop the apples.
  3. Melt two tablespoons of the butter in a large saute pan over medium heat.
  4. Add the apples to the saute pan, and allow to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Add the maple sugar to the pan, and stir to combine. The sugar will help the apples release more liquid, so you start to develop a "sauce" along with the cooked apples.
  6. Add the Apple Pie Spice, and stir to coat the apples evenly.
  7. Add the vanilla extract, and stir to combine.
  8. Grease a baking dish with 1/2 of the remaining tablespoon of butter, and melt the other 1/2 tablespoon.
  9. Warm the tortillas in the microwave so that they are more pliable.
  10. Sprinkle the arrowroot powder over the apples, to thicken the filling, and stir until the sauce for the filling has thickened. Turn off the heat.
  11. Spoon a few tablespoons of filling along one end of a tortilla, and roll the filling up in the tortilla.
  12. Place the rolled tortilla into the greased baking sheet.
  13. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  14. Brush the top of the taquitos with the melted butter, and sprinkle on the Cinnamon Sugar Cookie.
  15. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  16. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream if desired.
