Cinnamon Sugar Chips:

I found a kid's cookbook at the library this week and am excited to try a bunch of the recipes in it. today Gwen and I made a variation of a recipe they called Applesauce with cripsy scoops. The book is called

Kid Favorites Made Healthy
by Better Homes and Gardens

2 tortillas
softened butter
cinnamon sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spread a thin layer of butter on the tortillas.
  3. sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on the tortillas.
  4. Cut the tortillas into 8 triangles each with a pizza cutter.
  5. cook the chips for 7-9 minutes
  6. allow to cool on a rack and eat with applesauce.

Personal note:

  • We LOVED these!!! they reminded me of some baked cinnamon treats I'd had before by Quaker.
  • I thought that for our next party we could get a cookie cutter to go along with the theme and make cute shapes like flowers, heart, Christmas trees... then, if the scraps don't burn, I could let Gwen graze on them before the party.
  • We cooked ours for 7 minutes because I was afraid of burning them. But they were not as crispy in the center as the edges, so I think next time i will go for the full 9 minutes.
  • They made the house smell SO good!!!

  1. We LOVE those!! I made them when I was a kid in New Mexico! I think we may have cheated though...we just put ours in our toaster oven then put the other stuff on top when they came out! YUM! I may have to get that book when you're done...
