I preheated the oven to 400 degrees F.
I combined and set aside graham cracker crumbs and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
To get around 24-30 shells, I cut 4 rounds out of each tortilla shell with a cookie cutter. Then I dip each one into molten butter, then covered with graham mixture.
I flip the upside-down muffin tin and set the strips of tortilla between the muffin cups.
I baked for 10 minutes until the brown is just perfect.
I let the pan cool.
I melt the butter in a medium-sized pan and add the apples, brown sugar, spices, and 3 tablespoons of warm water.
I cook over medium-high heat, for around 5 to 6 minutes or until the mixture is very soft and tender.
I mix well the cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of water into a small dish. Then I add it to the pan and continue cooking until the apples are moist, and the filling thickens for around 5 more minutes.
Using medium speed to beat cream cheese, heavy cream, powdered sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla for 2 minutes until it thickens. I put it for thirty min in the freezer, and I move to a bag for piping.
I pipe the cream cheese filling into the taco shells and finish with a half teaspoon of apple pie filling.
For the topping, I sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs! AND THE TACOS ARE DONE!
