Cinnamon Crisp Pita Appetizers
My very favorite pita bread recipe!
To make Cinnamon Crisp Pita Appetizers, you will need:
two pita bread rounds (white or whole wheat)
nonstick cooking spray (butter flavored)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Here what you'll do:
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
While it's heating up, cover your baking sheets with aluminum foil.
Next, split your pita bread so you have 4 rounds from your 2, and then cut each round into wedges of six.
Now it's time to get your spray out - coat each side of the wedges, and place them on your baking sheet.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon, and then sprinkle over your pita wedges, carefully coating each.
Finally, pop it in the oven and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly crispy.
