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
Hi Claudia, thank you for your comment! My mother is Mexican American from Tucson, Arizona. I learned how to make these from her. Looking up “bunuelo”, it looks more like what English speaking people would call a fritter, or fried dough (see: https://www.isabeleats.com/mexican-bunuelos/). Do you also use the term to describe buttered and toasted flour tortillas with cinnamon sugar?
My grandmother was from Mexico. She made bunuelos by making the dough, cutting into triangles, frying them, then putting powdered sugar on them. They were so yummy!
They sound delicious!
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.
Tried it with powder sugar and honey to dip and it’s perfect!
Can these be frozen for a week or so?
Hi Ellen, my guess is no, though I haven’t tried freezing these.
They would lose their ‘crisp’
So i can store in zip lock container or baggy would like to take to a halloween potluck, lets say making them fri. put in zip lock. and serve sat at 5pm is that ok. or will they soggy if in container for that long, any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi Cecilia, I think if you let them sit out for a while and completely cool, then pack them in plastic bags or a container, they’ll be fine. Unless you are in a humid environment, in which case you should just eat them right away.
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
Hi Tiffany, yes, they’ll be fine!
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.
So glad you liked them Carmen!
I was scouring Pinterest for an idea for a letter “Z” shaped snack for my son’s preschool class next week. Needless to say, there aren’t a lot of foods that begin with the letter “Z”, and I don’t think zucchini-anything would be a hit! Anyway, I’m not sure why these came up on that search, but going to make these using a letter Z cookie cutter! Can’t wait to see how they turn out.
Just did them….one word. AWESOMENESS!!!!
I just made these to put in treat bags to hand out to the neighbor kids tonight, but I can’t stop eating them! So cute and delicious.
Can anyone suggest a good dip or spread recipe to serve with these at a Halloween Party?
Hi Suzi, they don’t really need a dip. They’re more like cookies than crackers. If you made them without the cinnamon sugar, but instead sprinkled them with spices like paprika or pumpkin spices, then you could serve them with anything, e.g. hummus.
I would mix together a little powder sugar water an lemon juice, drizzle not too much of it it on top. And YUM!
Maybe a vanilla yogurt, or the yummy fruit dip made with cream cheese and jar marshmallow cream…..you could serve these tasty tortilla crisps with this dip and fresh fruit- yummers!
Try cannnoli dip
I serve them with fruit salsa. You can find recipes for fruit salsa anywhere. They are a bit at every party I take them to.
Vanilla bean ice cream, sliced strawberries, warm pecans, and hot fudge would be good.
We made these this afternoon! The littles loved them, and I thought they were pretty tasty too! We will be making these again. Thanks for passing on the idea.
Love the shape of your cookie cutter. I have looked all over the internet but have not been able to find one in that shape. What brand of cookie cutter did you use? Thanks bunches!
It’s from a Wilton cookie cutter set of 3 cookie cutter—a bat, a coffin, and vampire teeth.
I love these! I was wondering how you would store them? I know my family loves this and would love to mail them some.
Hi Mal, they’re a lot like a crispy cookie. So I would wrap them in paper towels and put them in an airtight container like a cookie box, or a freezer bag, and then box and ship.
