Easy "Sopapillas" - Tortilla style

We were having a Mexican themed night with friends last night and I wanted to make a quick easy yummy dessert. All I could think of was a sopapilla style dessert, I love them... a mix of cinnamon, sugar, sweet pastry, honey, and cream. I haven't had them for years and I found some pretty cool recipes inspired by the sopapilla dessert. I needed a quick easy recipe and found cinnamon sugar tortilla chips and I thought they would be yummy served with freshly whipped cream and honey to dip them in. Time got away from us and it was late and we were still full from our dinner that I ended up not making the dessert. I still wanted to try out the recipe, so I woke up this morning and got started on this easy recipe. They were fun to make, so simple but very yummy! This recipe might sound strange but try this one it, I think you will like it!
