These sweet, crispy taco shells are a great place to start for dessert, as they're fun to make and exceptionally fun to fill. Bake a batch up for a sweet treat taco bar, then let your creativity fly to make your own custom fillings. If you need a few ideas to get started, we opted to personalize our shells to create Caramel Apple Dessert Tacos, Nutella and Red Berry Dessert Tacos, and Tropical Dessert Tacos--and were super pleased with all three.
6 (6-in.) flour tortillas
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll sheets of aluminum foil into 3 loose rolls, each measuring approximately 17 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide, and 4 inches tall. Place rolls parallel on a rimmed baking sheet.
Stir together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush melted butter evenly on both sides of tortillas, and sprinkle both sides evenly with sugar mixture. Drape 2 tortillas over each foil roll, so that they form a taco shell shape.
Bake tortillas in preheated oven until tortillas hold their shape and are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer shells to a wire rack, and cool completely.
