Ice Cream Taco

I always love when Lisa has her friends over because it gives me an excuse to try something new! This is a super fun little idea and really easy to do. The taco shells are covered with cinnamon, sugar and really crunchy.
Tortilla soft shells
Vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
ice cream
Favorite fruit, diced

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place a cookie sheet on the bottom rack, so it can catch any of the crumbs.
  • In a pie tin, combine sugar and cinnamon. Thinly spread vegetable oil onto the tortilla shell. Place shell into the sugar mixture and make sure it is well covered.
  • Fold the shell over the rods of a metal cooling rack. Place the rack on pans that will let the shells dangle without touching the oven shelf. We used bread pans on each end of the rack.
  • Bake until the shell is firm. Depending on the oven it can take anywhere 3 to 5 minutes.
  • As soon as you can, without burning yourself, remove the shells from the cooling racks.
  • Fill the shells with your favorite ice cream and garnish with beautiful fruit.

  1. What a tasty idea! I wish you had a picture of how you arranged the shells inside the oven.
    I think ice cream in cinnamon sugar shells would definitely be a crowd pleaser 🙂
