Also called “cinnamon-sugar crisps,” I’m thinking it was Martha Stewart who first introduced me to these little delectables some years ago.
Crispy, sweet and cinnamon-y, these are a perfect treat when you want something simple that isn’t filling. And they take just minutes to make.
All you need is a bag of tortillas, a little butter and some cinnamon-sugar. I mix the latter and keep it on hand in a old Parmesan cheese container so it’s convenient to sprinkle on buttered toast, baked oatmeal, or these.
I bake at 400 degrees for around 5 minutes. My cookies sheets happen to be insulated, so if yours aren’t, your bunuelos will brown more quickly. Also, tortillas come in various thicknesses, so keep that in mind. (I normally use the Mission brand.) Bake until they are lightly browned around the edges, however long that takes.
Serving Mexican? A bowl full of these to share would be a great, light dessert.
