Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips

1-1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract

Chocolate Drizzle:
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup half and half
4 fresh strawberries, sliced

Make the sauce: in a small bowl, blend together the marscapone cheese, sugar, and almond extract until the mixture is smooth. Make the drizzle: in a heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate chips until they are soft (about 1 minute in a microwave.) Stir in the half and half and blend until smooth.

Pita Cannoli Shells

Serves 6

6 pita, thawed
1-3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon sugar (regular or powdered)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Liberally brush the tops and bottoms of the pita with coconut oil. Using foil, crumple the foil to make a tubular insert of the diameter you choose (this is to support the interior while it bakes.) Wrap the pita around the foil tube and secure with a toothpick. Bake 12-15 minutes until crisp and lightly browned. Sprinkle with sugar while warm if desired.
