Instructions

SHELLS
  1. Using a 3.5″ circle cutter, cut out circles from your tortillas. You should get about 5 from each tortilla. (You can use any size cutter but this was the perfect size for a 2-3 bite taco).
  2. Heat about 1 1/2″ of oil in a pan on the stove over medium heat. Use a little scrap of tortilla to put in the oil and make sure it’s good & bubbly.
  3. Using tongs, place one circle in the oil for about 5 seconds. Flip it over and fold it in half holding it folded for about 5 seconds or until browned. Flip over and fry the other side until crispy. Immediately remove from the oil giving it a little shake and place into the graham crumbs if using.
  4. Set on a pan to cool. You can leave these at room temperature for up to 3 days.
CHEESECAKE MIXTURE
  1. Cream together cream cheese and lemon juice until soft.
  2. Add whipping cream and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Add in sugar and vanilla then beat until stiff and fluffy. Place in a ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
ASSEMBLY
  1. Pipe cheesecake filling into each taco. Top with pie filling and serve.
