Take It Down A Notch – This recipe will be easy for a young Prek or Tiny Chef child to complete. Simplify the recipe by having an adult help with dicing up the apples and cooking at the stove. Or by purchasing pre-made apple pie filling.

Kick It Up A Notch – Purchase additional toppings for the tacos. Make a homemade sweetened whipped cream, by whipping heavy cream (1 cup), confectioner’s sugar (2 tbsp), and vanilla extract (1/2 tsp) together.
