Remember when you used to stand outside in the snow and catch snowflakes on your tongue? Well, these beautiful snowflakes are just as fun to savor in your mouth, and a great activity to do with the kids on a snowy day. No two snowflakes are alike, but every one is delicious!
Large flour tortillas
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Sharp, clean kitchen scissors
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. Fold a tortilla in half, then in thirds. (If the tortilla is stiff, try microwaving it for 10 seconds to make it pliable.) Use kitchen scissors to cut shapes into the tortilla, then carefully unfold it to reveal a snowflake. Place it on a baking sheet, then brush it lightly with butter, then sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
HINT: This isn’t just a fun activity for kids. I love to serve these to guests with a large scoop of cinnamon ice cream on top, with a drizzle of caramel and chocolate. It makes a fantastic dessert display!
