Our eight children love helping make these sweet crunchy treats. We fry flour tortillas for a few seconds in oil, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. They're fun to make for a large group. I usually do the frying, then have one of the older kids add the coating.
I love to bake...in fact, my first try at baking "from scratch" is still vivid in my memory. I make a cake for Mom for Mother's Day—and forgot to put in the baking powder! This recipe brings back memories, too—when our two girls were young they often took these cookies to their Scout outings.
Field editor Kathy Kittell from Lenexa, Kansas found a “sweet” way to serve nachos. “It’s the perfect variation for my friends and family members with a sweet tooth,” she writes. “These buttery crisps disappear fast, so be sure to have plenty on hand.”
This was a dessert I used to order at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I couldn't believe you could fry ice cream, but this recipe is delicious proof. Top it with honey, caramel ice cream topping or whipped cream.—Kay Higgins, Madawaska, Maine
