Cinnamon Snowflakes

December 10, 2010

If you give a mom a tortilla, she might want to make a snowflake . . .

I’m sure I am not the first person to think of this, but I’m going to pretend I’m that clever for a moment.

I saw this post from Artful Parent about using coffee filters to make snowflakes because they are round, and I got the bright idea that tortillas are also round–and yummy!

Just take the tortilla (I used the 8 in ones) and fold in half and half again as if you were making a paper snowflake. You will want to use fresh tortillas for this so they don’t crumble or microwave them for a few seconds to soften them up.

Next let your little one cut out the snowflake shape with kitchen scissors or clean kid scissors.

Unfold and place on a baking sheet.

Spray with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake until edges are just beginning to brown (375 for about 5 minutes).



Pickle wanted to eat ours with strawberry jam and orange marmalade. Yum-o!
