My sister-in-law brought this to a family gathering, and I just loved it. It is a simple dessert, but oh, so yummy! It just sends thoughts of summer through your head….warm sunshine and flip-flops, oh, how we wish we could this time of year! There is one downfall to this delightful little treat: it expires quickly. You’ve only got about one day before the fruit starts going mushy on you, so it is great for a big crowd that will slurp it up soon after it is made. Enjoy!
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 lb. fresh strawberries
1 (8 oz.) package frozen raspberries, thawed
2 T. sugar
1 T. brown sugar
3 T. fruit preserves, any flavor
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
Vegetable oil for frying
2 cups cinnamon-sugar mixture to taste
In a large bowl, mix all fruit ingredients together. Cover and chill for at leasat 20 minutes.
For the cinnamon chips, cut the tortillas into strips or triangles with a pizza cutter. Heat oil in a frying pan. Drop tortillas into hot oil a few at a time. When golden brown, remove and immediately drop into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, then place on paper towels. Allow chips to cool.
The topping is also great on pancakes and waffles.
