Cinnamon and Sugar Tortillas

For the past couple of months, I have been making these little tortilla cups (breakfast, snack), and let me just say how much I love them. They are really fun to make, and even better, more fun to eat. Whenever I am making them using flour tortillas, I am left with some scraps from the round cutter.

As I looked at them, and glared down at my daughter, I said to her ‘we should really do something with all of these tortilla scraps shouldn’t we?’. Her response, as most times, was an exciting one, and a positive answer of ‘sure!’. I knew exactly what I was going to do with these, and that was to turn them into a cinnamon and sugar snack that I knew my kids would love.

These cinnamon and sugar tortillas are really easy to make, and are perfect to make with any kids in the kitchen. Let’s get started.


  • Flour tortilla, cut into strips
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon powder

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Next, dip your tortilla slice into the melted butter, then sprinkle both sides, placing it onto a baking sheet. Repeat until the tray is full.

Ingredients for making cinnamon sugar tortillas

Place the tray into the oven and cook for about 12 minutes. Keep a close on them around the 10 minute mark as they can brown pretty quickly. Your goal is to get a nice golden brown. Once you achieve that color, remove them from the oven, and place onto a serving tray.

Feel free to dig right in. I know that is what my daughter and I did. For some reason, these remind me of something in my childhood. It wasn’t the cinnamon pies that my mom used to make, and it wasn’t the chips from Taco Bell. It was something, and whatever it was, it was good. Real good. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
