Toddler Snack Ideas: Applesauce and crispy cinnamon wedges

This incredibly easy dessert was taken from my Kid's Favorites Made Healthy cookbook. It requires very few ingredients and you might just find that you have all of them on hand already.

Here it is:
2 7-to-8 inch flour tortillas
Nonstick cooking spray
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 4-ounce cups fruit-flavored or plain applesauce

1. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. (can be cut using a pizza cutter on a cutting board, a knife, or using kitchen shears) Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Generously coat tortilla wedges with cooking spray. In a small bowl stir together sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over tortilla wedges. (while not necessary, it helps to have a flour/sugar shaker for this) Bake in a 375 degree oven for 7 to 9 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.

2. Use tortilla wedges to scoop up applesauce.

Kids will love helping with this one! Preparing it and dissapearing it. ;)

Yum.this is my favorite snack at taco time. Did you mean 7-9 min. on each side? My wedges never curled, or browned.
