“Spooky” Cinnamon Sugar Flour Tortilla Crisps


EASY Halloween treat! Crispy cinnamon sugar cookie crisps made with flour tortillas, cinnamon, sugar, and butter

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).

Check out our short video on how to make these treats!

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.

“Spooky” Cinnamon Sugar Flour Tortilla Crisps Recipe

  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 12 crisps

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


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


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.

Then place coated tortilla pieces, cinnamon sugar side up, on the lined baking tray.

4 Bake: Bake for 10 minutes at 350°F, or until the tortilla crisps are indeed "crisp". Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes.

Did you make it? Rate it!

    Though I really like the idea of the cut out, why didn’t you acknowledge the background of the treat Its called a bunuelo. Im always defending all races but you could have at least touched on its origin from Mexico

    They could be yummy with Nutella dip

    One of the best recipes ever for kids to make and eat. I drew a bat on paper and used as a pattern and cut with a sharp knife, so whole realm of possible shapes. Just made for family Christmas using tree, bell, angel etc. To me using the knife around the cutter is easier than pressing out with the cutter. Easiest just to cut like a pie, the triangles are easy grab bites. Be careful they are additive and will be gone before you know it, so make plenty.

    I made this for my daughter with different style cookie cutter s and she loved them. Great snack for her play date! I enjoyed them myself !

    Five stars for an easy, yummy little snack-y thing! They turned out great, and I’m bringing them to a Halloween party tonight. I’m also interested in trying to savory seasoning with it sometime in the future.
