Crispy Halloween treats!

This is a recipe and how-to for Halloween tortilla crisps. They are very inexpensive, fun, and easy to make, not to mention very yummy! This recipe calls for:

-10 six inch flour tortillas
-1/4 cup melted butter
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-a cookie sheet ( I used more than one)
-cookie cutters in Halloween shapes, or a template traced onto wax paper, cut out the pattern and use kitchen scissors to cut out the shapes from the tortillas.

- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter, put into bowl with basting brush. Mix cinnamon and sugar together, put into a bowl.

Using cookie cutters, or a template begin cutting your shapes out of the tortilla's, depending on the size of your cookie cutter you should be able to get several out of one tortilla. You can use the scraps too, they won't be as pretty but they'll taste as good!

After shapes are cut out, brush melted butter onto both sides, then sprinkle one side with cinnamon sugar mixture. I recommend doing this on a cooling rack over a plate, it's less messy and you can reuse the cinnamon sugar that falls onto the plate.

Place shapes onto cookie sheet(s) and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool for about 15 minutes. Give them away as a Halloween treat to family and friends, or keep them for yourself to enjoy!

They sound great! Gotta try that today as I've got a few tortillas that just need to be eaten.
