You know how I was born on the other side of the pond and was completely clueless about apple pies? Yeah. Didn’t have a clue. Then I saw one and thought, oh, it’s a round apple strudel! And then I bit into one and realized that it wasn’t… Close, but not quite.

So. It’s been a long while since we discussed pie around here, ha? I think of pie making as a winter-business thingamajig and that is why I haven’t had one since those Boozy Fruit Tartlets.

Damn, it really has been a while…

Good thing we’re changing that today!

World, universe, please meet the easiest apple pie, ever – this is Inside-Out Apple Pie A La Mode. A huge scoop of vanilla ice cream nestled comfortably in a cinnamon-sugar tortilla, and topped with a homemade apple pie filling.

…And I just drooled… Please, excuse me.

I have gone on and on about how ice cream is my favorite dessert of all time, thus this little, individual treat should come as no surprise.

When thinking about 4th of July, and looking for food inspiration, apple pie is my go-to. Always. What’s more American than Apple Pie? Nothing, right?!

Considering this holiday is in the middle of summer, I can’t even be bothered to think about rolling out pie doughs and baking for days on end. The only baking we’re going to do around here is for these delicious cinnamon-sugar shells. Don’t worry, they are ready in 15 minutes, from start to finish.

While those bake, you’re going to chop up some apples, toss them around with a bit more cinnamon and sugar, and fry ’em! YUM!

Seriously, these are wildly delicious. I don’t know how you are going to stop yourself from having two, or three, or four, but good luck to ya. I wasn’t so lucky. I could’ve had all of them. Good thing I only made six.

ENJOY!

      HI! πŸ™‚
      As long as they are not filled, they should be good if made even 2 days ahead. Fill the cups right before serving.

    Kate,
    I love your photography. The angle of the spoon in the overhead shot–just gorgeous.
    And the recipe looks tasty, too!
    Thanks

  2. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies)

    These are so creative! I still have some tiny tortillas left and they’d be perfect for this recipe–love apple pie!

  3. Kristy

    OMG! I was hooked on apple pie with ice cream when I was preggers with Miss A. I would have eaten at least one of these a night. Probably still could! πŸ™‚ Delicious!!!

  4. Nancy R

    Oh my! You must have read my mind……………
    I was just telling hubby a few days how I felt like an apple pie but was too lazy at the time make it. These look sooooooo good and quick to make.Thanks Kate! πŸ™‚

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Thanks, Carolyn!! Now if I could just simplify croissants without using the canned ones. :-/ I’ll figure it out! πŸ™‚

  5. Terra

    What a fun play on a classic dessert, and so much easier to make:-) Your recipe sounds fantastic! I wish I had one….or two now….Hugs, Terra

  6. Jennifer

    What a great idea! And those cinnamon sugar shells look delish and super easy. As a woman who also hates to make pie dough, you get a big thumbs up from me.

  7. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet

    Seriously this has to be the best recipe I have seen today! The way you did the crust…genius!!

  8. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    These apple pie a la modes look great! I agree with an earlier comment about using the tortillas – way to go.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      The tortilla shells were SO GOOD! I could have eaten those without the ice cream… but that’s no fun!!! πŸ˜‰

  9. Helene D'souza

    Pretty tempting dessert Kate and quite brilliant idea as well! I was born on the other side of the pond too and experienced the same apple strudel/pie confusion at first. ^.^

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      hehe πŸ™‚ SO you know exactly what I’m talking about! I thought it was so odd when I bit into the apple pie because I was expecting strudel πŸ™‚

  10. Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen

    LOVE this easy twist on All-American Apple Pie for the 4th of July and the summer season! Just. Brilliant! xo

  11. A_Boleyn

    The whole wheat is a little too ‘healthy’ for me but I’d go with the regular flour tortillas in a heartbeat. πŸ™‚

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Those will work just as well. πŸ™‚ I like the whole wheat tortillas because they have more flavor… in my opinion. πŸ™‚

      1. A_Boleyn

        I’m not crazy about the chewiness of whole wheat tortillas but since my first thoughts for a quick shell I would have been puff pastry circles or even wontons brushed with oil and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, I figure the flour tortillas would work too. πŸ™‚

  12. Valerie

    While I kind of love the arduous process of making pie crusts, now and then a little instant gratification never hurts. πŸ˜€
    These individual apple pies look delicious!
