Wednesdays Unplugged – Cinnamon Crisps



"Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters." ~ Margaret Peters


NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!


This was spring concert week… our granddaughter last Thursday and grandson on Tues… with a Stephen Paulus tribute concert by the amazing Conspirare singers from Texas in between on Monday. Did I mention their director is from Minnesota, land of lakes and choirs?!


With spring in the air my thoughts turn to ice cream… and these cinnamon crisps from The Pioneer Woman make a great accompaniment. We tend to like our cinnamon sugar more cinnamon-y, so I used less sugar and more cinnamon than the proportions below… actually just used our cinnamon toast shaker… adjust to your taste!


  • Cinnamon crisps1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 whole flour tortillas (small size)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon.

Brush butter on one side of the flour tortillas, sprinkle generously with the cinnamon sugar. Flip the tortillas and repeat on the other side.

Bake for 15-17 minutes until very crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Break into pieces and eat as snacks or serve with ice cream. (I prefer Bryer's Natural Vanilla, also the only ice cream our grandson will eat!)
