Author:
Ingredients
  • 4 soft tortillas (I used the fajita size tortillas, 6" size)
  • 4 ounce cream cheese (1/3 less fat and softened at room temperature)
  • 4 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • Fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate chips, about ½ cup
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Butter for cooking
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, add cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  2. Take one tortilla at a time and smear with ¼th of the cream cheese mix all over it evenly.
  3. Now in the center lay the thinly sliced strawberries and top them with some chocolate chips.
  4. Starting from your side, start rolling it tightly until you roll it all the way. Keep it aside and repeat with the remaining 3 tortillas.
  5. Now in a deep dish, break an egg and add heavy cream and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and lay the rolled up tortillas in it. If you need to then flip them once or twice so they get coated with the egg mixture. Now if you are going to keep them overnight, cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Make sure they are not touching each other or overlapping or they will stick to each other.
  6. When ready to cook, heat some butter in a non stick skillet. Place 1-2 tortillas at time. Cook on medium-low heat until golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side as well.
  7. In a bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar. Coat these cooked french toasts with cinnamon sugar and serve.
