Taco Shell Ice Cream Sundae

I am still a kid at heart and making an ice cream sundae is just plain fun.  Well, why not take that fun to the next level by making an eatable bowl?  That's just what I did when I made my own cinnamon and sugar coated bowl with a flour tortilla.  I made the bowls with my kids and they couldn't believe that a tortilla made such a fun dessert.  4 people, 4 bowls of ice cream, one very happy and sweetly satisfied family.

To make 4 bowls you will need:
4 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
2 Tbs of white sugar
1 Tbs of melted butter



  





Directions:
Apply melted butter on both sides of each tortilla and warm on a griddle or frying pan. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together on a plate.  Coat each tortilla with the cinnamon and sugar on both sides. 


Place the coated tortilla on an inverted ice cream size bowl (that is oven safe) so you can mold it.  Press gently around the tortilla and mold it into shape.



Bake in a 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes (keeping an eye on them).  Then allow to cool on the bowls for a hour or more.


Your bowl should be crispy and ready for a sundae.  It's time to to fill them with your favorite ice cream.  I recommend vanilla bean ice cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar (left over from making the tortillas bowls), chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, lots of chopped nuts and a cherry to finish it off.  That's what we did and they were delicious!

  Note: if making the bowls are too much trouble. You can do the same process and cut them into triangles then bake off and make cinnamon chips to eat with your ice cream.
