Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month? Well, it is and it’s time to celebrate.

That’s right, a Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowl-an ice cream bowl that you can eat!

When my sister-in-law, Whitney, came to visit she made these for dessert one night and we’ve been making them ever since. Josh isn’t even a big ice cream eater, but he has been asking for ice cream a lot lately…as long as it comes in a Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowl.

Let the bowls cool and fill them with your favorite ice cream. We like plain old vanilla ice cream or Coconut Raspberry Ice Cream, but you can fill them with whatever you like. Frozen yogurt, sorbet, and even plain yogurt are good options. We like to top the ice cream with fresh berries. Feel free to add hot fudge, salted caramel sauce, nuts, whipped cream, or any other toppings you can think of.

  • 6 flour tortillas
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Ice cream and berries for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 6 (8 oz) ramekins with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar. Take a tortilla and spread a thin layer of butter on both sides. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over both sides of the tortilla. Continue until you have completed all of your tortillas.
  • Carefully place the tortillas into the prepared ramekins. Press the tortillas down into the ramekins and press against the sides. The tortillas will fan up and out of the ramekins and that is ok. Just make sure there is an opening in the center.
  • Place the ramekins on a large baking sheet and bake for 17-20 minutes or until tortillas are golden brown and crisp. Let the tortilla bowls cool for 2 minutes in the ramekins and then remove. Place the tortilla bowls on a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
  • To serve, fill the bowls with ice cream and berries. Serve immediately.
  • Note-You can make these bowls 2 days in advance, just keep in an air tight container. If you don't have ramekins, you can use oven safe bowls. You can fill the tortilla bowls with your favorite ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, or even yogurt. Top with your favorite fruit or ice cream toppings.

  1. These are such a great idea, and I didn’t know it was National ice cream month! Great excuse to utilize these.

  2. I made these today for desert tonight. They look so awesome! Thanks, then of course i had to make homemade raspberry sorbet to put in them. 🙂

  3. Wow what a great idea this is! I do cinnamon chips but never thought of this!!

  4. That is such a great idea! Especially since I always seem to have leftover tortilla shells around. YUM.

  5. This is a really great and creative idea! I love that it has all the tasty goodness of those higher fat waffle cone bowls, BUT much healthier and you can make it at home. This is a really fun idea. I betcha it’d be good as a salad bowl too – just with more savory spices!

  6. We absolutely love celebrating National Ice Cream Month, and I think these are going on next week’s menu! <3 YUUUUUM

    Love these, Maria! Simple and adorable.

  7. These were great! Everyone in my house loved them. We used 6″ tortillas in 6 oz. ramekins and they were perfect!

  8. Great idea and what’s not to like when it’s an eatable bowl that contains yummy cinnamon!!!

  9. Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give
    a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your
    posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects?

    Thank you so much!

  10. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with
    my twitter group? There’s a lot of people that I think
    would really enjoy your content. Please let me know.

  11. Hi there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and
    look forward to all your posts! Keep up the fantastic work!

  12. Help, I’m having a problem with these.   My sugar is melting and pooling in the bottom of the bowl.   I was careful to lightly coat the tortillas with butter to make sure they would crisp, and i hake off excess cinnamon and sugar.  I  am using mini tortilla molds which are metal of some sort and black.   My bowls crisp on top but remain chewy toward the middle and bottom of bowl, even tho I baked them longer and just short of burning them.   I!m having a group in in six days and hope to have this problem resolved by then.  Thank you.
