Scrumptious, Delicious Cinnamon Crisps

Do you remember cinnamon crisps?

When I was little, I loved watching my Mom make a pie.  Not because she was so entertaining or because I loved pie.  No, sir.

I loved what she did with the leftover pie crust.  She would roll it out, cut it into small pieces, and sprinkle the pieces with cinnamon sugar.

Then she baked them for us.

These little cinnamon piecrust morsels were far better than the pie itself.  At least in my mind.

Tasty cinnamon crips can be served alone or are even tastier with vanilla ice cream. (Here is a homemade vanilla ice cream recipe, if you’re needing one…) Not Your Uncle Paul’s Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe – No Cooking Required

Making Memories in the Kitchen

Does the smell of cinnamon bring back memories for you?

Did you bake with your Grandmother or Mom when you were young?

Do you know that your sense of smell, when paired with an activity, will stimulate and enhance your memory?

Here’s an article about that: How to Make Childhood Memories That Last a Lifetime.

And this is an easy recipe for kids to make!

Cinnamon crisps ingredients

These cinnamon crisps are made with tortillas instead of pie crust.

But, if you’re making a pie, you can use pie crust just like we did “back in the day”.

When making these with kids, it might be easier to cut the tortillas into smaller pieces first.

Here we go.

Melt butter on a plate.

Dip the tortilla or tortilla pieces in the butter.

Or you can use a pastry brush and brush the butter onto the tortilla.

How can I make cinnamon sugar? Ratio 1:1?


Sunday 1st of October 2023

@Julie, a Google search for ‘how to make cinnamon sugar’ shows:

The perfect ratio, mix 1/2 cup of regular granulated sugar and 2 table spoons of cinnamon in a bowl and whisk until there are no lumps. Leftovers can be stored in a glass jar; another search will show how long it is good to store for. Here’s the website I got the above info from. God bless you.
