  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Cut 3-inch circles out of each tortilla using a round cookie cutter. Fold tortilla rounds into a taco-shell shape.
  4. 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.
  5. 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...

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!

I made these with mango & strawberries and pineapple & strawberries instead of grapes. This was a clean the cupboard/fridge out stroke of genius.

These were a huge hit for our get together. my daughter and I made them. there were none left.

Great July 4th picnic dessert! I’m not much of a deep fryer cook but this was really simple...15 min for the frying...15 minutes to assemble.

They are wonderful with just raspberries instead of strawberries and grapes too! I can even share those with my dogs, who cant have the grapes.
