Cinnamon Crisps

We made these one night for dessert. I accidently overcooked them a little, so they were a little more like cinnamon sugar chips.

When I was younger, my mom would make a similar thing... I think it was easier and tastes as good (or better). I'll go ahead a make a recipe for that (she always just made it... no recipe needed) - see below.

Recipe from FamilyFun.go.com


4 Tbsp butter
6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
2 to 4 Tbsp sugar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  1. Heat the oven to 450º.
  2. Melt the butter in a large baking sheet in the oven, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Place the tortillas in the baking pan (they may overlap a bit), turning each once to coat both sides with butter.
  5. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the tortillas.
  6. Bake the tortillas until golden and puffed in spots, about 7 minutes. (you may want to move the tortillas after a few minutes in the oven, especially if there is a lot of overlapping) * Do not overcook *
  7. Serve them warm - we served with honey drizzled over cinnamon crisp.
Mom's Recipe


flour tortillas
butter or margarine
cinnamon sugar

  1. Heat the oven to 350º.
  2. Cut each flour tortillas into quarters.
  3. Spread some butter on one side of each.
  4. Lay buttered tortilla quarters down on a baking sheet (overlapping just a little on some corners).
  5. Sprinkle tortillas with cinnamon sugar.
  6. Bake until hot and as crispy as you like. (to make them cinnamon chips, cook approximately 10-12 minutes - look for edges to curl and crisp up)
  7. Serve warm.
I suppose you could brush melted butter and add cinnamon sugar on each side of the tortilla quarters, then cook at 400º for 6-7 minutes.
