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.
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.
