Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Delight
This was a recipe I learned in college. Makes a sweet, low fat and filling treat. Best of all it's made in the microwave!

This is a really easy snack/dessert, and very addicting! I improved it by spreading vanilla frosting on a tortilla, then adding the sugar/cinnamon mix. My roommate and I make these in our quesadilla maker with the frosting on one side and a little butter on the other- very good!Read More
Because I don't like the soft microwave texture, I baked mine. i used a pizza cutter and sliced them into 1 inch(width)strips and then sliced them again, so they were about 4 inches long. Placed them on a baking sheet, put spray butter on them and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar on them. Set the oven to 400 degrees and bake them for 6-8 minutes. Yummy! crispy and tasty. low calorie yummy snack.Read More

I used whole wheat tortillas and thought they were good. However they would be great drizzled with honey or chocolate syrup!
It doesn't get much easier than this! Perfect for when you're craving something sweet. It goes great with fresh apple slices.
I made these as a 12 year-old kid. They're addictive. I still make them some 20 years later. A fun varation is to "fry" the tortilla coated with butter in a pan and THEN sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on your cinnamon tostada. Gracias!
Easy, yummy. Remind anyone else of junior high? Good tip: use those raw tortillas from Tortilla Land, you get them at Costco. I've also seen some at Walmart. After cooking one side, flip it and spread on the butter, cinn/sugar. It just melts in as the other side cooks -world of difference!
These are not only great to use up old tortillas, but it's a quick snack for the kids. I serve it up with sliced apples and a marshmellow/yogurt dip. My kids flip for it.

In Texas we fry the tortilla, use a paper towel to soak up the grease and coat it with the sugar/cinnamon mixture. And we call it a bunuello! Kids seem to like the crunchy version better than the soft. It should work with the raw tortilla dough as well. But you can cook them on a griddle or frying pan(cast iron works best) without any oil. They are not as crisp and they taste great with nothing but butter, too.
I make these for my kids and sometimes even for me! I love them "baked" or "fried" as well, nice and toasted and crunchy.
This was fantastic. We made at least ten over the weekend. You can add lowfat butter and low carb tortillas to make this a little bit healthier. You don't even need to measure the ingredients.
I accidently bought a 10-pack of tortillas when I only needed 8. It was a good way to use up the other two and give us a dessert for the enchilladas I made. Butter and cinnamon sugar...YUM!
These ARE great! I make these by putting two slices in a muffin pan the larger ends first and letting the 'pointed' over lap pan. This make a great cup for you favorite filling. I like marshmallow cream and cream cheese (blended together) with cinnamon dusted on top.
I grew up eating this. Using a butter 'spread' made it taste a little like plastic. The way we do it is to heat a pan on low, and place the tortilla in the pan. When the tortilla is warm take a stick of butter and rub it across the tortilla - just enough to make it so the cinnamon sugar mix will stick. Then, roll it up like a burrito and enjoy! I like mine with the outside just a little crispy, but my husband likes his warmed.
I was hungry for something sweet & this really hit the spot. I was surprised at how tasty they were.
So quick and easy! I placed the tortilla rolls on a cookie sheet and into the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes. They were lightly crisped and delicious! I also made them as tortilla chips by cutting the tortillas into triangles with a pizza cutter. Also good - but I liked the roll ups better. This is a real quick fix when you are looking for something sweet and low fat to snack on.
Very good. If you spread the tortilla with "Nutella", a hazelnut/cocoa delight, it is super good as a variation. Also, the spread is low fat
I did not like these at all and my kids only ate half and said they were done. My kids love cinnamon.
I did make adjustments - I very lightly spread each tortilla with margarine (less than 1/2 tsp on each one), sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, cut each one in 8 triangles and baked them at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes, delicious with a blueberry salsa!
Holy #$@*! I just let my boss carry on a one-sided conversation for an entire phone call because I couldn't stop eating this. I used the same ingredients (real butter, though) and prepared it a little differently based on ideas from other reviewers. I fried the tortilla in butter and sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on after flipping and served it open face. My husband said it was delicious and that's practically effusive from a man who doesn't share my enthusiasm for food.
Very good and sweet. We spread cream cheese on one tortilla and butter on the other to see which tasted better. They were both equally good but the butter does tend to leak out.
Good, quick, easy.
I give this simple snack 4 stars as is, but 4 someone like me it was missing the Umph in it. I replace the butter with cream cheese & hit the bulls eye. reminds me of a cinnabon! So then I decided to take it another notch and added fresh ripe Strawberries(sliced)upon rolling. OMG! Absolute Best! I used the oven for mine at a set temp of 350 heat 4 less than a minute your tortilla should still be soft & heat just enough 2 break down the cream cheese and C&S mixture. thanks for the recipe.
This was very quick and easy and really good, too.
This may taste good, but it a lot of fat and empty calories. There are much healthier snacks to feed your family.
Yummy with fruit salsa.
Quick and easy for my sweet tooth ...... I did about 70% cinnamon to 30% sugar and real butter .... margarine was originally invented for turkey food ...It killed the turkeys .... Don't eat the stuff
I have always loved Sopapillas for dessert in Mexican restaurants, so I was thrilled to find this simple recipe. I have a Quesadilla maker, so I spread soft butter from a tub on a flour tortilla, put another tortilla on top, and "smushed" them together to make sure the butter got spread around on both. Then I separated them, sprinkled a generous amount of cinnamon sugar on one, put the other one back on top, and baked my snack in the Quesadilla maker until it was crispy and browned. Then I cut it into six wedges and dipped them in honey. DELICIOUS!
I make this a lot, mostly in place of toast after breakfast. I do it a little differently though. I "try" to eat low carb, so I use Mission brand low carb tortillas. Also, I found that putting the butter on before putting it into the microwave causes it to melt all over the place. So what I do is put the tortilla on a paper towel in the microwave and heat it for 10 seconds, and then, having everything else out and waiting already, quickly spread enough butter over all the tortilla to moisten it all, even to the edges, then sprinkle on the cinnamon. At this point I fold it over in different directions enough times to moisten all the cinnamon (dry cinnamon isn't very pleasing!) then I use a packet of Splenda all over it and roll it up and enjoy! Very tasting snack.
Great recipe! I used it with home-made tortillas, and did it right as they came off the skillet. Added peanut-butter swirl ice cream inside after the first few, and the combination of hot and cold was amazing!
Delicious way to use up an old tortilla but as we have only butter in the house - not exactly what I would call a low fat snack.
i have plenty of soft corn tortillas sure you can use flour tortillas, but corn tortillas will taste even better.
I was up late studying and had a craving for something sweet. I came across this recipe and it was PERFECT! Took care of my sweet tooth and was super easy. I used a mixture of brown sugar (all i had) and cinnamon - it was perfect!
I made this today for an afternoon snack for my 3 boys and my nephew and they were a hit! Instead of putting them in the micro, I just popped into the toaster oven for 5 mins to make them a bit more crispy! Super yummy, will make these more often for sure. Used whole wheat tortillas and served with some sliced apples to round out the nutritional value :)
This is quick and easy, just what I was looking for, but I didn't want to use that much butter. So I cut it down to 1 tsp of 75% fat free Elle & Vire extra lite butter. Since I didn't have cinnamon sugar, I made my own using 1 tsp cinnamon and 3 tsp muscovado sugar. I mixed the butter, sugar and cinnamon together before spreading them onto three whole wheat tortillas. All in all, this guilt-free but tasty snack comes down to just 280 calories.
The entire family LOVED these! They sound so simple, but they are the perfect quick snack or dessert!!
easy and good dessert or snack!
As soon as I read this recipe, I had to go make one & OMG!!! I wish I'd known about this long ago--SO delicious & SO easy! Now--about those extra pounds I'll inevitably gain.....!
I made these for my boys but they weren't a big hit. Then I made them, replacing peanut butter for the margarine. The boys loved them and so did their mom.
I like the idea and taste of this recipe. Unfortunately, I found the texture a bit "gummy" done this way (microwaving). I think I will try baking in the toaster oven briefly instead of using the microwave. Thanks for sharing!
IT was great! And super easy. I folded the tortilla in half so that the cinnamon sugar on the inside like a quesadilla. It was delicious.
Uh oh! Now were making Mexican Lefse....we Norwegian Americans make a tortilla like bread every year at Christmas, thinner than tortillas and made with potatoes. We serve it with butter and sugar, sometimes adding cinnamon to the sugar...
I thought these were good. Quick and easy! I think next time I'll try adding vanilla frosting, then the cinnamon sugar as another reviewer suggested. I'd also like to try these fried.
I thought these might not be very good since they are heated in the microwave, but they were surprisingly good and so easy! A nice quick dessert.
A very delicious dessert in under 5 minutes - how can you go wrong? Instead of microwaving these, I rolled mine (being sure to tuck in the ends) and fried in a bit of butter. Apart from the rolls unfolding a little when I turned them (I had to use a toothpick in each to keep them together), they turned out perfectly. Crispy and sweet, super yummy and very fast...we will definitely make these again.
These are one of my husband's favorite quick snacks. Sometimes I like to add some sliced banana to mine. They're nothing I would serve to guests, but they are a fun nostalgic treat.
Delicious! My brother and I have been making these since we were kids. I've tried with both flour and white corn tortillas. Both ways are quite delicious!
I made this for my girlfriend and she liked it a lot. It was very easy to make. I would make this again.
I made these as a snack for my son after school. He didn't care about them at all, he asked me to make one with peanut butter instead and I added some fine little pieces of apple. That's his new thing now.
This has to be the simplest, easiest, and fastest recipe to satisfy a sweet craving. It really hit the spot and I didn't have to run to the store for the ingredients!
we had a similar meal served as dessert in Mexico with friends years ago .They served it with syrup and Almond milk made the arabian way which was thicken and had a cinnamon stick in it to stir with .You ate the tortillas and drank the milk it was wonderful.This was at the nights of the posadas and was meant to keep us going through the service and fun that followed
Simple and yummy.
This would have to be deep-fried to be any good.
We have made these by slicing tortilla w/ pizza cutter into triangles and baking until crisp. Serve hot w/ chunky applesauce!
pretty good. used way too much oil.
For a little extra treat to this recipe - put in chocolate chips. Make the recipe just like it says but add chocolate chips and then put in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. It will really hit the spot for you chocolate lovers out there. UMMMMM good...
So simple, fast to make, and yummmmy!!! Tastes amazing with whole wheat tortillas as well =]
It tastes even better with cream cheese intstead of butter!!!! The cream cheese melts and gets super sweet mixed with the cinnamon sugar. I would only put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds though. DELICIOUS!
I'd give this four stars for the recipe as written, but add in a handful or so of semi-sweet chocolate chips before microwaving it, and it's worthy of 10 stars! Definately my new favorite evening dessert. I can't wait to introduce my roommate to this!
i just got done eating this, very good. i was very suprised how good it was. i was able to use up that 1 tortillia that was sitting on my counter. thanks.
I did a variation on a variation-cooked each side in butter, adding sugar and cinnamon after flipping them over. It got a bit too burned, but was still good.
I was making these 35+ years ago for my kids. We all loved them. At that time I didn't have a microwave so heated the torilla in a pan just to get it warm enough for the butter to melt.
These are really quick and easy. When you just need a little sweet snack, this fits the bill.
Very quick and delicious! Great as a studying break/snack.
I've been making the flat/toaster version of this. Spread the butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar, slide it in the flat toaster oven without rolling up(not regular toaster!) Toast it until sugar starts to bubble and edges are light brown. I love the combination of crispy edges and soft inside.
This is heavenly! My husband just told me that these are addicting! I threw mine in the oven for about 2 minutes. I love it! I will have to try the microwave version next time.
Fast and simple snack!
This was my favorite after-school snack growing up. Thirty some odd years later, I still love these.
Haven't tried this one, but it sounds identical to the lefsa we ate growing up. Without the potatoes of course.
Even with stale tortillas, it was tasty! The kids loved them, too, and it was so nice to have a quick and easy treat!
Pretty blah, I wouldn't make again. But then again, I didn't expect much from such a simple and, ahem, healthy alternative to my cinnamon-sugary things cravings!
this is a recipe that my son brought home from summer camp, many years ago. The kids got to choose the ingredients, like peanut butter,chocolate/hazelnut spread, brown sugar, cinnamon, apples etc and they would cook them in a cast iron frying pan over the wood fire. No wonder they loved camp so much!
The taste is good but I don't like the soggy, chewy microwave result.
Quick easy and tasty little snack. Great way to use up leftover tortillas. My three year old likes to make them himself.
It's delicious fried, topped with applesauce!!
they are soo yummy!!! add some fruit salsa to them... and you have a mega hit!
So awesome and SIMPLE! My new favorite sweet snack. Great way to use leftover tortillas.
I had just ran out of butter when i read this. I substituted marscarpone cheese that had a little maple syrup in it and followed the recipe as it is. Nice substitute for pastry dough. My grandson loved it!
This is VERY good! I added red frosting from a tube because I was bored and absolutely LOVED it! Very easy to make. For fun you could add sprinkles.
I'm going to try this on the weekend and my granddaughters will luv helping manna!, I'll try the frying pan method I'm going to rate it high because I can already taste how good it will be.
Easy enough for my kids to make! They ALL like it too! Thank you!
so good! also tried with greek vanilla yogurt instead of butter. fine by me!
This is the coolest sweet snack. After the kids went to bed my husband and I had a craving during a movie. We did not have much in the cupboard. I remembered the recipe and looked it up. It was a hit. We stuffed ourselves silly. I made it the next day for my 7 year old. He loved it. GREAT SNACK!
these were just ok. I tried them a few different ways to try to make them rave worthy but I didn't come up with anything to make me think they would be more than 3 stars
Love this recipe! I also add berries.
Our Great Gram taught us to make cinnamon & sugar toast as pre-teens and we are now in our late 30s. We toasted our bread, spread with oleo and sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar. Great ! This recipe was a reminder of how we made the toast. Thanks
Great idea. I never thought of putting cinnamon on a tortilla, but after seeing this, I tried it for breakfast. (I know, real nutritious.) I had actually made my own tortillas for the first time the day before, so mine were particularly awesome--even though they were more amoeba-shaped than round. I reheated mine on a skillet, then spread on real butter before sprinkling with sugar and cinnamon. Addicting.
This is a great snack and easy to make! I decided that it could use something else so I took some strawberries and 2 tbs of sugar, smashed it and mixed it, then put it in the fridge and it made it taste a lot more better.
Changed it up a little and LOVED it - Took a stick of butter and just rubbed it lightly over one side of the tortilla, then put it in the skillet with heat a little above low. Waited about 20 seconds, then rubbed butter on the up-facing side and coated with cinnamon sugar. Then removed from the skillet and put two thin apple slices next to each other and rolled it up around them. SO good!
delish. I made it using butter, and it was wonderful. easy, inexpensive treat.
Great. Very simple and good.
A great recipe for when you're craving something sweet but don't have much in the pantry! Quick, easy, and yummy.
Been doing this a long time. Call it Faux Lefse!
I thought this was amazing. I used whole wheat tortillas and I added a vanilla glaze to it. Very yummy.
great quick snack, I also do this w/pita bread. split pita in half put in toaster , after toasting spread w. butter or equavilent & sprinkle w/sugar&cinnamon mix. Yummy!
I tweaked this recipe a little bit and use mascarpone cheese as the spread, popped it into a 350 degree preheated oven for 2 minutes, then drizzled honey over it after it was done. My 17 month old and I loved it! The microwave isn't a terrible idea, but I had just cooked supper and the oven was still hot. Also, I know how slow my son eats and if I would have put the tortilla in the microwave then by the time he would have been halfway thru it, the tortillas would have gotten hard.
