Crispy and sweet Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls that are perfect for serving up your favorite ice cream! And the best part? You can eat the bowl too!
Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month? Well, it is and it’s time to celebrate. I like ice cream however it is scooped up-in a cup, cone, straight out of the carton, or in a Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Ice Cream Bowl. 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.
The bowls are easy to make, the only ingredients you need are: flour tortillas, butter, cinnamon, and sugar. I bet you have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.
All you have to do is brush the tortillas with butter, sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar, put them in ramekins or oven safe bowls and bake them until crispy!
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.
Josh said the Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls remind him of churros, but with ice cream…which makes them even better! The bowls can be made a few days in advance, which makes them perfect for entertaining. Everyone is always impressed by these pretty edible bowls! And the best part, they are soooo simple!
If you are looking for a fun and new way to serve up your ice cream this summer, make Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Ice Cream Bowls.
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Bowls
- 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.

Great idea! Thank you!!!
What a great idea! Love this!
oooh, I need to make some of these for our next batch of ice cream!
This looks like ice cream served in a fancy restaurant. I love ’em!
We usually just make this in triangle form and stick them in our bowls of ice cream….I love this idea, I’m so making these for my kiddos!
These are the BEST idea Maria!! I will totally make these for my kids!
Too cool, Maria!
Ooo, I want one of these cute bowls right now!!
This would make the ice cream eating experience so much more fun and tasty! I’d love to have a serving of that 🙂
Oh now this is just brilliant!! My nieces and nephews would love this!
I’ve made a mini version of these using the back of a mini muffin tin…they came out adorable!
These look so tasty…and simple to make. Another recipe on the old to do list!
I love making tortilla bowls.. but I really like this cinnamon sugar version!
How clever is Whitney?! I could see doing a cobbler-like dessert with peach ice cream in one of these bowls, topped with some maple granola.
These are gorgeous, Maria. Fun idea!
A recipe easy enough for me to make. Think I might have two ramekins bowls that sixe.
Such a GREAT idea!!
What size tortilla did you use? These look great!
We use 10-inch flour tortillas.
A lovely treat!
These are such a great idea, and I didn’t know it was National ice cream month! Great excuse to utilize these.
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. 🙂
Best idea ever!!!!!!! Seriously in love with this!!
Wow what a great idea this is! I do cinnamon chips but never thought of this!!
Such a fun way to serve ice cream!
That is such a great idea! Especially since I always seem to have leftover tortilla shells around. YUM.
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!
Love love this idea! So easy yet so fancy looking! Very creative!
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.
Yummy yummy! I will definitely try this!!!!
These are so neat!
Love this! They sound delicious and the perfect addition to a bowl of ice cream.
Cute idea and the cinnamon, yum.
These. Are. Genius.
Just beautiful, Maria! xo
What a pretty and fun presentation, love these ice cream bowls!
oh wow these look so good. I love the idea of making my own ice cream bowls and with a Mexican twist!
Great idea! Gotta try this soon.
You are brilliant. That is all.
These were great! Everyone in my house loved them. We used 6″ tortillas in 6 oz. ramekins and they were perfect!
Great idea and what’s not to like when it’s an eatable bowl that contains yummy cinnamon!!!
One word – YUM!
Delicious! I’m pregnant and you’re making me crave all of this yummy food! 🙂
Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give

Thank you so much!
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.
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!
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.
Hmmm, I have never had this problem. I wonder if it is the mini molds???
