Cinnamon Tortilla Surprise

Cinnamon Tortilla Surprise
A sweet Mexican dessert I made for Spanish class.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 10 large flour tortillas, cut into quarters
  • ¼ cup melted butter, or as needed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, or as needed
  • 40 maraschino cherries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 40 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Combine sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  3. Brush both sides of flour tortilla pieces with melted butter; sprinkle each with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Gently fit each tortilla piece into a prepared muffin cup, shaping the tortilla to make a shell.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tortilla shells are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Beat milk, cream cheese, and pudding mix in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Fill each tortilla shell with about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top each with a maraschino cherry.
