Weight Watchers Dessert Recipe

I had this dessert at a friends house last week and she just emailed me the recipe. It is SO GOOD!!

WW Cinnamon Crisps with Honey (Sopapillas) 3 points

4 (8 inch) fat free flour tortillas
Butter flavored cooking spray
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
Preheat oven to 350. Stack tortillas, cut into four wedges, separate wedges and place in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle wedges with sugar mixture. Drizzle on honey
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Yield: 4 servings, (4 wedges each)

WW Ginger Fruit Salsa 0 points (Gotta love that!)

1 ½ cups coarsely chopped cantaloupe
1 cup chopped pineapple
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, tossing gently. Let stand at least five minutes before serving.
Yield: 12 servings (1/4 cup serving size)

OPTIONS: Robin added extra ginger, pineapple, and cranberries and I thought it was delicious.

Use the sopapillas as your 'chips' and enjoy!! It's got a kick w/ the ginger and jalapenos, but its so satisfying and delicious.

Mandi and Garret... I ADORE Sopapillas!! La Nopalera makes the fattening kind - fried and drenched in melted butter. Perfect for a pregnant lady! I can't wait to try the WW version. Thanks so much for posting it.

I made this on sunday and have been eating it as a great snack every night. :) It's better if you let it sit longer than 5 minutes, though. :)
