When we speak of dessert, many people will quickly think of the usual cakes, candies, cookies or puddings. But if this is what you are going to prepare for your family or visitors’ day in day out, trust me they will get bored of the routine and begin skipping that course. And also come to think of this many of those desserts tend to consume a lot of time while preparing.
A little change and creativity while preparing that dessert can save you the frustration of having to watch people skip that part of the meal. Tortilla dessert cups could do the magic. In my recipe, I chose to use whipped cream and fruit toppings. I found trouble in getting already made tortillas in the supermarket so I decided to make some for myself. They were not as perfect, but they served the purpose. If you would love to try out this recipe here is how you can go about it.
Ingredients for tortilla cups
Half cup cinnamon powder
Three 10-inch flour tortillas
Fresh fruit toppings of your choice
1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
2. Butter each side of the tortillas, sprinkle with cinnamon and cut into even quarters of each tortilla.
3. Place two quarters in six cups of a muffin tin and push down so that they create a cup shape. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until crisp.
4. Remove the cups from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.
5.Assemble the cups by placing a spoonful of whipped cream in each toasted cup. Top the whipped cream with fresh fruit of your choice.
