“Spooky” Cinnamon Sugar Flour Tortilla Crisps

One of my mother’s favorite treats is to heat up a flour tortilla, rub a little butter over it, sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon, roll it up, and eat. One of my favorite indulgences is cinnamon toast.

Marry the two and you have what must be the easiest ever cinnamon sugar cookie, or “crisp”. 4 ingredients. Just a few minutes to make, and so good!

Now I’m the neighborhood lady who gives out tiny boxes of raisins on Halloween because I think kids get enough sugar as it is (don’t worry, my dad and brother come over with plenty of candy to give out so I don’t embarrass the family, and also the kids get a choice).

So part of me is reluctant to offer up yet another sugary Halloween snack. That said, I would not deny any child (or adult) the pure pleasure of cinnamon toast, and I must make the same exception for these sweet tortilla crisps.

They’re just too good not to enjoy.

I promise I’ll have something low carb, gluten-free, paleo, and vegan on the site soon to make up for this, but in the meantime, I hope you try these crisps, they’re GREAT.

  • Prep time: 15 minutes

You may want to double up on the amount of cinnamon sugar and butter just to make it easier for dipping and dredging.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 flour tortillas

Method

1 Cut wedges or shapes out of each flour tortilla: Cut each flour tortilla into 6 to 8 wedges or use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes in the tortillas.

2 Prepare oven and baking sheet: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

3 Dip tortilla pieces in melted butter, then one side in cinnamon sugar, place on lined baking sheet: Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and spread out over the bottom of a small plate. Melt butter in a small bowl.

Dip the cut pieces of flour tortilla in the melted butter, gently shake off the excess and place on the plate of cinnamon sugar. Only coat one side of the crisp in cinnamon sugar.

    I want to make these for my son’s party. Would they still be good if made them a couple days in advance and stored in a Ziploc container? So much to do so little time to do it haha

    You could always use a sugar substitute such as Xylitol and a low carb tortilla

    If you would want a crunchy sugar & cinnamon tortilla-all you have to do is fry the cut out shapes in olive oil! Then dip the tortilla into the bag of sugar and cinni (already mixed) or pour the bag of sugar and cinni mix over the tortilla! I grew up with this small treat tradition! It’s so easy and my kids love it!

    Would whole wheat tortillas work?

    YUM! Holy cow these are delish. I used margarine as ive recently gone vegan :) it must be added that they crisp up similarly to cookies where upon they harden when cooling so dont think you need to leave them in longer than the 10 minutes.

    Love this recipe. Delish and a good way to use up left over tortillas.
