I feel like the pear fruit is a highly under rated fruit and why I decided to feature it in my recipe for Pear and Apple Strudel
Now let me preface this entire tutorial by saying, I know my recipe for making strudel is not a true Austrian Strudel Dough which gets stretched and pulled across the entire table so thin that you can read a newspaper through it!
You can of course use a pie plate and just go family style with the entire recipe into one dish.
You will see in the video as well as the written instructions that I used a splash of Pinot Grigio (for the adults at my party) into each cobbler; but of course you can leave that out and replace with a splash of apple juice.
I have been told that my cobbler topping is more like a biscuit topping, and yes I will have to agree with that.
There are some folks who make cobbler with a more pourable topping? Like a pancake batter almost? But that to me is more like a clafoutis and not a cobbler.
But this new dessert for Apple Tacos sure can pass for a great prank!
I have to be honest when I took my first bite my mind wanted to taste real tacos, and for a split second I feel like I almost did!
But then came the sweet cinnamon apples and raspberry “tomatoes”. That hefty portion of “guacamole” came through as a burst of Green Tea Ice Cream and oh wow what a combination!
Don’t forget the shredded cheese…. er..umm… I mean~ Shaved Chocolate!!
You seriously do not need much time or ingredients to pull off these whimsical little desserts!
Old El Paso makes the mini tortilla boats and pretty much everything else you probably already have in your pantry! (The link for the tortillas is for a visual, just so you know what to look for, I doubt anyone really wants to buy a case of them from amazon! LOL) I found them in the taco aisle in my local supermarket.
This can easily be made VEGAN simply by using a vegan ice cream and vegan white chocolate.
Prepare a slurry with the other measure of sugar , cornstarch and the second measure of water
Add the slurry to the boiling mixture and whisk continuously while it thickens.
Add the diced apples and turn heat to medium-low, simmer for about 5 - 10 minutes until slightly tender to your liking.
Meanwhile coat the tortilla boats with coconut oil spray (or any spray oil you prefer) then coat them with cinnamon sugar and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for approximately 5-8 minutes or to desired crispness
Cool the apple filling completely before assembling the tacos as shown in the video tutorial!
Tacos can stay at room temperature for several hours without the ice cream of course! Nothing will go bad - the tortillas just may get soggy
