My mom always made my brother and I Sopapillas growing up. Ok Sopapillas is a fancy name for a Deep-Fried Flour Tortilla, Sprinkled with Sugar and Cinnamon. Around Halloween she would carve the tortilla to look like a pumpkin which was really cool.
Nevertheless, now with gluten free tortillas available at the grocery store I no longer need to make these with Corn Tortillas and can actually use a Gluten Free Flour Tortilla. YAY!
It is just so easy and quick — Just fry up the tortilla then sprinkle with a Cinnamon-Sugar mixture and then top with a dollop of whipping cream drizzled with honey!
