  6. Turn on the oven, set it to 350 F.
  7. Cut the ball of dough into 4 equal parts.
  8. Roll out the dough to make tortilla shells. Or use a tortilla shell press. I have no idea why I have one of these, but hey.
  9. Spread butter over the surface of the tortillas.

  11. Roll up the tortillas, and bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

Not half bad. I plagiarized the idea of tortilla cinnamon rolls from my last trip to Mucho Burrito. The recipe for the tortilla shells came from here, though I didn’t follow through the final step of putting the shells on a skillet. The texture after they were baked was pretty similar, however.

They’re not as savoury as real cinnamon rolls, the doughnuts I make, or pies… but they’re still pleasant.
