  • 3 Dempster's® Original 10" Tortillas
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) icing sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) 2% milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Spoon 1 tsp (5 mL) melted butter and 2 tsp (10 mL) brown sugar into bottom of 8 mini muffin cups.
  2. Brush remaining butter generously over each tortilla; sprinkle remaining brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon evenly over top. Stack tortillas on top of each other; roll up tightly into log shape. Cut into 8 pieces; place in prepared muffin tin.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until sugar starts to caramelize and buns are golden brown. Let stand for 4 to 5 minutes before inverting from pan. Let cool completely and drizzle with Icing.
  4. Icing: Stir icing sugar with milk until smooth; transfer to small, re-sealable sandwich bag and snip off one corner of bag.

Tip: Substitute chopped walnuts for pecans if desired.
