No meal with Amelia is complete without dessert!
Amelia’s idea this week is for dessert tacos.
This is her own original recipe. Enjoy!
Pin This Recipe
Flour tortillas (4 or 5 large tortillas)
2 Tablespoons of butter — melted
1 Tablespoon of sugar
1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
8-10 cookies (Oreos or any homemade cookie will work)
Maraschino cherries (about 6, chopped)
Green cookie icing
Directions for Dessert TacosUse a round cookie cutter or similar to cut out small circles from the tortillas (about 3 inches in diameter). Brush each circle on both sides with the melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and arrange in a taco shape on the bottom side of an up-side down muffin tin (see video). Bake at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes.
While the tortillas are cooking, chop the cookies to make the “meat” for the dessert tacos. You can put the cookies in a plastic jar and smash them with a meat tenderizer (less messy) or chop them with a “slap chop” (more messy).
Assemble the tacos. Put a spoon full of the “meat,” then top with the cherries (which look like tomatoes) and green icing for the lettuce. Add some sprinkles for a little flare.
Eat and Enjoy!
