When I was a kid I spent a few years with these twins named Jenae & Jennifer. Their grandma used to pack their lunches and the two of them had cinnamon sugar tortillas almost every day. Took me awhile to weasel my way into getting them to share one with me and from then on I was hooked. I remember coming home from school and trying my hardest to recreate them. Master of the microwave, I was not. They always ended up crunchy because I didn’t know you could microwave something for less than a minute.
This snack is now a part of Cooper’s childhood. Sometimes he has it for breakfast and sometimes as an afternoon snack for school. If our tortillas aren’t pliable I pop them in the microwave for like 8 seconds to soften them up. I spread salted butter evenly on top and sprinkle cinnamon sugar lightly over the butter, followed by an extra dash of cinnamon. Then I roll them up like little cigars and cut them up. I find that cutting them into little bite sized rolls makes me think I’m eating mini cinnamon rolls…they’re doughy and delicious.
