Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite yummy tricks…how to make your own cinnamon sugar tortilla bowls! If you have flour tortillas, butter, cinnamon and sugar…you can whip these up in no time!
I’ve been making these bowls for about 18 years, since I was first married. They are so simple and make a pretty presentation for desserts. You can fill them with so many things – my new favorite is to fill them with apple crisp!
Baked Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls
- Flour Tortillas (I use 6 inch tortillas)
- Melted Butter (approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons for 4 tortilla bowls)
- Cinnamon Sugar (see recipe below)
- Non-Stick Cooking Spray
- Small to Medium Size Bowls (Ramekin work great – any similar oven safe bowl will work)
Cinnamon Sugar Recipe
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Stir sugar and cinnamon together until well blended
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray each bowl lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Microwave each tortilla (I do one at a time) for 8-10 seconds ~ this makes them easier to place in the bowls without tearing. Next, lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with melted butter and generously sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place each tortilla in a bowl, gently filling the bowl and folding them where needed. Press the center of each tortilla to make a flat bottom. Place bowls in preheated oven on middle rack. Bake for 15 minutes or until they are crisp and golden brown. Once ready, remove from oven, let stand for 2-3 minutes and remove them from the bowls. Place the tortilla bowls on wax paper to finish cooling.
Be sure to lightly brush with butter – too much will make them soggy and they won’t crisp up. During the baking process, check the tortillas to see if there are big bubbles filling the center of the bowls. If you have any, just pop them with a toothpick and continue baking.
Fill them with something yummy and dig in! When you’re done…don’t forget to eat the bowl!
