Mexican Fried Ice-Cream

4 scoops vanilla ice cream
4 flour tortillas
Flour paste 2 Tbs. (30 ml.) Flour + 1 Tbs. (15 ml.) water
Chocolate Syrup
Whipped cream
Cinnamon sugar
Cherries garnish
Oil for frying
Small deep fryer

The night before they are to be served place one scoop of ice cream on each tortilla and wrap into a nice little round package. Make sure that your scoops of ice cream are solid not hollow in center. Use a little flour and water paste to glue it shut. Wrap each in plastic wrap tightly and put back into the freezer. Freeze them solid overnight.

Warning- They should remain frozen until just prior to frying.

Heat oil to 375 F. (200 C.). Remove plastic from one and place it in the oil for 20 seconds. Remove from oil and place in bowl. Dust with cinnamon sugar. Drizzle on some honey. Add whipped cream. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Top with cherry and serve.

Make them one at a time from start to finish unless you have a large fryer. You are not actually frying the ice cream. You are browning a tortilla quickly before the ice cream has a chance to melt. Allow the oil to reach 375 degrees before frying the next one.
