As you’ve probably noticed, I am a planner. I like to have everything set up and ready to go well in advance of any event. I can go with the flow in my daily life, but when it comes to parties, I always start well in advance. For instance, next week is my darling daughter’s third birthday. I have probably been planning it since New Year’s Day. Now that she is a little older, she has given me some very specific input into the theme, decor, cake and party favors. I still get to choose the food, though, because when it comes down to it, I’m the mom.

I always try to have fun treats for the children who attend any of our parties. So, for this week’s recipe, I thought I would share one of the kid-friendly treats she and her friends will be enjoying at her “princess dress-up party.”

Honey Cream Cinnamon Crisps-IngredientsFor Honey Cream Cinnamon Crisps, you will need…

  • 10-12 flour tortillas
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • green grapes (optional)

This is actually a two-part recipe; there are the cinnamon crisps, and then there is the honey cream. Each by themselves is good, but together they are amazing. I did some taste testing at Texas Farm Bureau today, and I got some really good reviews. My favorite was from our very own Nathan Smith who said, “It’s like a party in my mouth.”

First things first. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Stack your tortillas and cut them into six triangles each. Now, spread them in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. It is important to put them on the lined sheet so they don’t stick after baking.

Then, coat one side of each chip with melted butter. I find that the back of a spoon works really well for this if you don’t have a pastry brush handy.

Next, combine your sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle the chips heavily with the mixture until they are well coated.

Pop them in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. They should be pretty crispy at this point. If they are still flexible, put them back in for another 2 minutes to crisp up. Remove from the cookie sheets as soon as possible and let cool on a rack.

Honey Cream Cinnamon Crisps-Cooling

While the chips are cooling, whip the softened cream cheese and honey until smooth.

Honey Cream Cinnamon Crisps-Spread

Once the crisps are cool, spread a layer of the honey cream on top, or set a bowl of it out with the crisps for dipping. I like to serve them pre-spread with half a green grape to add color and a touch of tartness.

Well, it looks like I have the food under control. (Now, on to the party favors…tutus and capes for all!) I hope you have the opportunity to share this recipe with the little or big kids in your life. Don’t forget to keep those recipes coming!

From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
