Ingredients

2
eggs
1/3 c
cup milk
2 Tbsp
granulated sugar or splenda
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract
4
(10-inch) flour tortillas
4 Tbsp
(1/2 stick) butter, divided
3 Tbsp
confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla until well blended. Cut each tortilla into quarters then place in egg mixture. Gently stir to completely coat tortillas. Allow to soak 10 minutes, or until softened. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter.
2
Add 4 tortilla quarters and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden, turning halfway through cooking. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Repeat with remaining butter and tortillas. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately. Strawberries are the perfect topping, either fresh or frozen and thawed, along with real maple syrup.
