Crunchy, flaky Cinnamon Crisps are the perfect dessert for one, two or a whole house full of guests! Hurry and snatch a few up, because they won’t last long!
Years ago, probably when I was in Elementary School, when we went to Philadelphia to visit my Grandma, she always treated us to Taco Bell. And I’m not going to lie, I kind of looked forward to it! Why? Cinnamon Crispas (and, no, that is not a typo). Holy cow were those crunchy, flaky bites of cinnamon and sugar tortillas good! They cost all of 39¢ for a bag and then they went away — womp, womp, womp. The cinnamon twists do the Cinnamons Crispas no justice.
I have talked about these delicious bites of goodness for years and never in my wildest dreams thought about making them, until recently that is. All I can say is, “Why did I wait so long?” Insert face palm.
I went on the hunt for fresh tasting tortillas and picked up some uncooked TortillaLand tortillas at Costco (found in the refrigerated section). I love that they have five simple (and recognizable) ingredients – wheat flour, water, canola oil, salt, and sugar. So, I put them to good use with a little experimenting. When I mentioned to my husband what I was set out to do, he looked at me like I had four heads. “Oh ye of little faith.”
|Cinnamon Crisps|| |
- 14 TortillaLand tortillas
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Vegetable Oil
- Heat oil in frying pan to 250-300 degrees (oil must be deep enough to cover tortillas)
- Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well, set aside.
- Cut tortillas into quarters.
- Once oil is hot, place 6-8 tortilla wedges into the oil.
- Continue to fry the tortillas (turning occasionally) until golden brown.
- Remove from frying pan and place on paper towels.
- Immediately sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture, turn over and sprinkle other side as well.
- Serve or store in an airtight container up to 7 days.
When the hubby took his first bite, he said, “Wow, not bad” and proceeded to eat a couple more. Ha! Steve likes all things fried, so I knew this would be a winner. Do I know my husband or do I know my husband?
These taste delicious paired with ice cream or drizzled with honey. Hosting a game day party? You’re sure to impress your friends with these Cinnamon Crisps, they’re a real crowd-pleaser! #partyfood
