Punkin-tillas

I love the changing seasons.

I would love them even more if I lived in a part of the country where we experienced more of a change than hot, hotter and occasionally rainy.

I dream of turning the AC off (maybe even turning on that heater!) and sitting around a campfire on a chilly night.

And there are no mosquitoes in that fantasy. None. Whatsoever.

In honor of fall--it's coming up on Thursday--my oldest boy and I made a tasty little treat.

He named them "punkin-tillas." I love that.

These little yummies taste like pumpkin pie and are a snap to make.


Punch pumpkins out of tortillas using a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter and line them up on a greased cookie sheet.



Brush melted butter on top. We used a BBQ basting brush 'cause we're fancy like that.


Sprinkle with sugar (I used raw; it's what was in the pantry and it gave the pumpkins a nice caramel color), cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.




Pop 'em in the oven, under the broiler, for just a minute or two until they're nice and crisp and the sugar is beginning to caramelize. But don't take your eye off of them--they burn quickly!


Serve with a big dollop of whipped cream and dig in. These little cuties won't last. 



So long, summer!

  2. VERY cute!!! I can't find flour tortillas around here to save my life so I'm going to have to think about how to modify this. I wonder if I can do pancakes.. or VERY thin biscuits.

    Can't wait to read more!

  6. Love the idea! My husband supplies corn to tortilla makers so we NEVER have a shortage of tortillas! I am going to try making these as soon as my son wakes up from his nap!
