Yield: 6 tostadas
|6||Corn or flour tortillas|
Place ½ tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the sugar in a frying pan large enough to hold a tortilla. Set over medium heat until the butter foams and the sugar melts. Stir. Add a tortilla to the pan and fry over medium to medium-high heat until the tortilla puffs up, about 1 minute. Turn and fry on the other side until well browned, about 1 minute more. Remove the tortilla to a small bowl, pressing down the center to fit the shape of the bowl. Let cool until set, then remove the tostada cup from the bowl. Add more butter and sugar to the pan and continue with another round until all the tortillas are fried and formed.
TIPS: These can be made several hours in advance. They hold their shape after cooling till set in a bowl. Use 4-inch hors d'oeuvre-size corn tortillas for smaller desserts.
