Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls

We serve up our salads in tortilla bowls, why not desserts?  Cinnamon sugar tortilla bowls make a great dish for those summer desserts. What could be better than an ice-cream sundae served in a crispy that is meant to be eaten?  They are simple to prepare and can be made ahead. 

  • 6 - 6" flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Spray 6 large oven-safe ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Soften the tortillas by microwaving for about 10 seconds.
  4. Lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with melted butter and coat with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Place each tortilla in a ramekin, gently folding as needed and pressing to flatten the bottom.
  6. Bake on middle rack of oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp.
  7. Remove shells from ramekins after several minutes and cool on a rack.

Fill with a scoop of ice-cream and your desired toppings.  Or fill with pudding, fruit and whipped cream...or even fruit salad.   And don't forget to eat the bowl!
