Annie’s Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

on 06/16/2011

Oh, joy!  Fresh fruit has arrived!  First the strawberries, now the cherries and next week…blueberries!  My girls are about the fruitiest…okay, fruit-eatingest gals i know, so this is a wonderful time of year for them.  You wouldn’t believe how many cherry pits have made their way into the garbage can in the last 24 hours.

When  our dear friends Steve and Sharon were expecting their baby last year, we had the pleasure of having a baby shower in our home.  One of the hits of the party was the following recipe for Fruit Salsa.  This stuff truly is ambrosia!  And you don’t feel guilty consuming it.  It’s so easy to make your own Cinnamon Chips but you could find them in some stores or also use graham crackers for those who don’t like cinnamon (yes, i somehow gave birth to the one person in the world who doesn’t.) ha  By the way, feel free to try variations.  I also added blackberries to  mine and hope to try it with blueberries and cherries very soon!

Annie’s Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored
and diced
8 ounces raspberries
1 pound strawberries
3 tablespoons fruit preserves

10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
butter flavored cooking spray
2 cups cinnamon sugar

In a large bowl, mix all of the fruits with preserves.  Cover and chill for at least 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat one side of tortilla with cooking spray.  Cut into wedges as you would a pizza.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and spray with oil again.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and allow to cool.
