Kid Dessert Recipe 
Kids Can Make

Were you looking for a kid dessert recipe? Something easy that a little one could help out with? Here is a simple Mexican dessert recipe your little one can make with your help.

I call it Mexican cinnamon tortilla treat.

For the most part kids love to help out in the kitchen. I know mine did when they were little. Measuring ingredients, stirring, and working with their hands is a wonderful learning experience.

Start them young and they will develop a love of cooking and you will create wonderful memories to last a lifetime not to mention lifelong cooking skills.

So pull out your aprons and let's get started.

Cinnamon Tortilla Treat

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • butter
  • small tortilla 8 in. fajita style

In a small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon together. Melt butter and brush on tortilla. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the buttered area and roll tortilla up. As you roll up tortilla, spread butter on the other side.

Once rolled up, sprinkle with more sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Place tortillas on a cookie sheet.

Cook in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

If you have left over cinnamon and sugar mixture, save it in a cup for future use on cinnamon toast or even apple pie.

Mexican hot chocolate would be delicious served with this kid dessert recipe. Kids love to eat 'em. Adults too.

Made your apple pie recipe yesterday. Absolutely the best!! And no gap! Your spice mixture was just right.

I have the apple/corer/peeler and it made perfect slices in no time. Thank you so much for your wonderful step by step instructions and for the video. Much appreciated. Lucky me! :)

Hi! I just wanted to say that your tortilla recipe/video is pretty much the greatest thing ever! I'm a college student, so it's a really great/cheap thing to make. They're especially good with butter, honey, and brown sugar.

I just have to make sure my family doesn't find out I stopped using the family tortilla recipe! Ha! Thanks again!

I just have to write to you and admit something! I'm preparing your spanish rice recipe at the moment AND....I want to thank you!

I had actually given up on making Spanish rice! No one, or no recipe, until YOURS, ever said to actually BROWN the rice so much.! I think thats the taste difference!

Thank YOU so much.  I followed your recipe exactly,..and it is absolutely wonderful!

Just to let you know that I found your website and love it. We have very limited Mexican produce in Australia and I am enjoying making your recipes.

I have made your enchilada sauce a few times now.  We all love it and have managed to find pinto beans at our central markets. Good Job. Well done.

Rockin' Robin, you truly rock! I live in china right now, far, far away from my beloved Mexican food. Finding ingredients is hard enough, learning how to make everything from scratch no longer is with your recipes.

Though I've only tried your tortilla recipe, I will certainly be coming back to your site to make retried beans and Spanish rice!

My tortillas were awesome, best yet, thanks for giving us a night of Mexican food all the way over here in China!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I stumbled upon your website today as I searched the web for flour tortilla recipes. I made these just after viewing your video, and five of us devoured them.

SO DELICIOUS. And easy to make! I am most grateful to you for this simple, tasty recipe. Your video was a useful tutorial.

I've not attempted to make tortillas prior to making yours, though we often eat tortillas. We're vegetarians, so I was looking for a recipe which used canola oil instead of lard. You delivered. Merci.

WOW! What a great website. Love how you show what to do and how it is supposed to look. Definitely in my favorites folder.

Where good Mexican food is hard to find.

Just made your enchilada sauce recipe and that's what I've been looking for. I like the fact it has a little heat but not too much so my kids will eat it. Thank you for posting the recipe. i am turning leftover turkey into turkey enchiladas tonight but the star is really the sauce. Thanks again.
