I made these on a whim while trying to clean out my refrigerator. Ended up with this gem! Would be great at a shower or any other get-together where you are serving finger-foods. Also, would be a great dessert on your family taco night.

  • Beat cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl until smooth.

  • Cut 3-inch circles out of each tortilla using a round cookie cutter. Fold tortilla rounds into a taco-shell shape.

  • Hold folded tortilla with tongs and cook in the preheated oil until the taco shape holds and tortilla is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer cooked tortilla to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining tortilla rounds.

  • Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over cooked tortilla rounds. Spread cream cheese mixture into each shell; top with grapes and strawberries.

I loved these mini tacos and so did my husband. He ate four of the fruit filled delights. A beautiful little bite of cinnamon and fruit. I used a flower shaped 3 inch metal cookie cutter since I didn't have a round cookie cutter. This recipe was an easy recipe to make and I would make these again. Perhaps a cute dessert for a brunch bridal shower or a tea party for my little granddaughter. Read More

I use this recipe for the filling and fruit but use preformed Philo tarts I found in the freezer section of the grocery store. Delicious!!! A family favorite! Read More
