Step 1: INGREDIENTS/TOOLS
� 7”- 8” Flour tortillas
� Spreadable butter (in tub)
� Ground cinnamon
� Granulated sugar
� 1 teaspoon
� 1 butter knife
� 1 sharp (steak) knife
� Cutting board
� 1 large microwavable plate
� Oven mitt
� Paper towels
� Cooking spray, ex: Pam (not shown in image)
**Don’t forget to wash your hands before you start making these sweet treats!
For you ‘Health Nuts’ out there, use low-carb flour tortillas, and substitute spreadable margarine for the butter and Splenda for the sugar. It still makes for a delicious, yet healthier treat!
Step 2: CUTTING THE TORTILLA
** Be careful with the sharp knife! Hold down the tortilla firmly, and avoid cutting towards body and fingers.
Step 3: SPRAY & PLACE
Step 4: SPREADING THE BUTTER
**Be careful with the butter knife. Also, this step may get messy. Avoid licking your fingers at any time to prevent spread of germs, and wash your hands at the end of this step if they are covered with butter!
Step 5: SUGAR
Recommendations: Depending on how sweet you like your treats, you can add more or less sugar (½ teaspoon-1 ¾ teaspoons).
Step 6: CINNAMON
Recommendations: Depending on how much you like the cinnamon flavor, you can add more or less of the spice (1-3 pinches/strip).
Step 7: PLACE IN MICROWAVE
** Make sure that the tortilla strips are NOT hanging over the edge of the plate to prevent them from falling off and making a mess.
