Tortilla Sundae

Tortilla Sundae

8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
oil for deep frying
¼ cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp. cinnamon
8 scoops ice cream of your choice
whipped cream, as needed
chopped nuts, for garnish
chopped fruit, for garnish

1. Heat 3” of oil in deep fryer. Carefully place one tortilla on the surface of the oil and, using a 4 oz. metal ladle, center ladle over tortilla and quickly but gently and carefully push the tortilla in the oil to form a cup shape. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes until the tortilla is golden brown and crisp. Gently remove from the oil using tongs, tipping it so the oil drains off, and place on paper towels. Repeat using remaining tortillas.
2. Combine powdered sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the fried tortilla shells. Set out a platter with sundae ingredients for a sundae bar.
