Experimenting in the Kitchen: Cookie Dough Flautas

April 19, 2021

My oldest son and his girlfriend are coming over tomorrow night for Taco Tuesday dinner, a family favorite.  But I wanted to do something a bit more special since we don’t get to have dinner together as often now that he doesn’t live at home.  I remembered Tijuana Flats cookie dough flautas and thought it sounded good, but when I searched the internet, I couldn’t find anything.

I did some research on ingredients, and methods and settled on trying the air fryer. We found quick ingredients prepackaged so it only took about 5 minutes to prep and 5 minutes to cook, so these can be prepped and made quickly for any occasion. It was a hit with my boys, although we figured out a few things to do differently. So here’s a breakdown of the how to make them, for calorie info, just check the packages of your ingredients you choose.

*****EASY COOKIE DOUGH FLAUTAS*****

Ingredients:

10-12 Fajita tortillas

1 package of cookie dough of your choice

Follow the package instructions for the cookies.  Helpful tip: many recipes call for the butter to be softened but not melted, so check for that so you can set it out in advance.

Spoon a tablespoon amount onto a tortilla and spread as thin as possible. Then roll the tortilla tightly.

This was a first roll and with way too much cookie dough, so spread thinner and roll it tightly.

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. We didn’t use any oil for this recipe.

Set the tortillas into the air fryer basket. Cook for 3-5 minutes.  Let cool for a minute or so.

Garnish with powdered sugar, drizzle with chocolate sauce, or, like us, do both!

We have a strong sweet tooth in this family and it was sweet to us, so I recommend cutting in half before serving (use a very sharp knife so you don’t squish them).

Enjoy!
