Cherry Cups

I'm fixing to share with you a sweet and simple recipe you can whip up in a jiffy.

I had a package of tortillas in the breadbox that seemed to be ignored. I did not want them to go stale so I decided to make some sweet crispy cinnamon cups. Oh this so easy, your kids could do it. 
Here is what did.

I sprayed a muffin pan with cooking spray then placed a flour tortilla in each muffin cup. 

Then I used some spray butter and coated the tortillas. Then sprinkled with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. You can do both of these steps before you add them to the cups if you wish.  
Bake 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until brown and crispy. 

That's it! Now go find some ice cream, baked apples, or......


Cherry is my favorite flavor of anything from candy to doughnuts. When I saw a can of cherry pie filling in the pantry I knew cherry cups would be born.
I spooned a glob of cherry pie filling in each cup. I would normally top with whip topping, but I was out. That was probably a good thing because I did not need the extra calories. 

Each one of these cups are approx 120 calories each.

Your turn...Go experiment. There is so many things you can make with those flour tortillas, besides tacos!
