Sugar Tortillas by Jose Olivia

We are all familiar with corn and flour tortillas, but as a child my grandma would make sugar tortillas for me whenever she would visit. Very recently my grandma came to visit me from Mexico and without fail, she made a batch for me to enjoy. She always loves spoiling me with them, and a visit with her is never complete without them. These tasty treats are not just clumps of sugar in the circular shape of a tortilla, but are actual tortilla that are eaten plain because they are sweet almost like pan dolce. These sugar tortillas are very special because my grandma has not shared her recipe with anyone yet, and has it written down somewhere safe. My grandma often times makes pastries and other sweets for all of my family, but the sugar tortilla is by far my favorite one since I was a child.
