January 26, 2011
flour tortillas (10 inch)
cup salted butter, melted
cup granulated sugar
teaspoons ground cinnamon
cup red sugar
cup orange sugar
Move 2 oven racks to middle positions. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray (or line with cooking parchment paper).
Place tortillas on cutting board. Brush generously with melted butter.
Place 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon into each of two small bowls. Stir red sugar into one bowl and green sugar into other.
Sprinkle each of 4 buttered tortillas with about 3 tablespoons of the red mixture, and sprinkle remaining 4 buttered tortillas with about 3 tablespoons each of the orange mixture.
Place 2 tortillas on each cookie sheet. Use pizza cutter to cut each tortilla into 12 wedges. Spread wedges apart slightly.
Bake 8 to 12 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through bake time, until crispy and lightly browned. Wedges will begin to curl up on edges.
"My son and I often make these sweet treats to go with hot chocolate on a chilly day. Everyone seems to love them, and the red and green sugars make them festive. There’s something about using the “pizza cutter” tool that is really exciting for kids, and these are so simple to make that your kids can prepare the entire recipe all by themselves." - Lori Lange
