Here’s a pretty quick, and pretty charming, treat.
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bats.
Alls ya need is a handful of tortillas, melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar sifted with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and here’s the secret part….a few dashes of chili powder. Trust me on this. It’s the perfect nod to Mexican cooking, and you’re already using tortillas.
Use a bat shaped cookie cutter to cut out as many bat shapes as you can from the tortillas.
Dip each bat in the melted butter and then quickly into the cinnamon/sugar/chili powder mixture. You only need to coat one side of the bat with this mix.
Lay them out on a Silpat (or parchment paper) lined cookie sheet, non-cinnamon/sugar side down, and bake at 350 for about 5 minutes, or until the bats are crispy.
After they cool, eat them just as they are….
OR, better yet,
….use them as a spooky/sweet garnish for ice cream sundaes.
