Cinnamon Sticks

Yes. They’re every bit as yummy and crunchy and fun as they look. No, they aren’t nearly as difficult to make as something this good should be. Yes, I ate this whole cup- full myself.
This is a fun little snack to make when the hours between lunch and dinner are a few too many and you’ve still got lots of work to do. Kids love ‘em, they’re quick, and maybe not too terrible for your waste line. I don’t know for sure, I don’t want to find out.

Cinnamon & Sugar

Very lightly spray each flour tortilla with cooking spray.

If you don’t have a cinnamon & sugar mixture already made up, make one by mixing 1/2 cup sugar with 1 TBSP cinnamon.
Sprinkle the tortilla evenly with the C&S mixture

If you don’t have a flour/sugar shaker, you can get away with using a spoon. But, I gotta tell ya, it works a lot better with a shaker. You get a nice even covering without any overwhelming bites. I also use one for spreading flour on the counter when working with bread dough. I can use a lot less, allowing my dough to not get over floured. Click that link to see the exact shaker that I use. (Only somewhat cleaner.)

Cinnamon SticksSlices With a pizza cutter, slice the tortilla into 1 inch slices. Then cut in half the other way.

Cinnamon Sticks-Bake Now, recall all those spacial reasoning skills you developed as a child, and arrange the slices onto a sheet pan. (I do two large tortillas and just barely get them onto one pan.)

Bake on 375° for 6-7 minutes.

*Note:  You want them to be crispy but not overcooked. Just light brown.  Notice the color as you’re putting them into the oven. When the timer goes off, you can judge if they have browned enough.
