Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Snowflake Fun!

Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Snowflake Fun.....phew!  
Try saying that five times fast!  

While it may be a little bit of a mouthful to say, these crispy-sweet snowflakes are not hard to make, and oh so deliciously fun to eat too!  The kids were thrilled with this playful snack!

You'll need:

Flour tortillas, as many as you'd like to make
Vegetable oil cooking spray
Cinnamon sugar
(I just mixed about 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon)
Kitchen shears
If you don't have kitchen sheers, you can easily just use cookie cutters to punch
snowflake-like designs into the tortillas.

To make the snowflakes, I gently folded one tortilla into quarters, and used a pair of kitchen shears to carefully cut designs. 

Don't get too intricate design wise, the tortilla won't be able to hold the shape well enough.  Bigger, chunky shapes and designs work better.

Once you're pleased with your trimmed tortillas, lay them and all the little cut outs on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Spray the tortillas lightly with vegetable oil cooking spray, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. 

Bake the tortillas in a 400 degree oven for 6-8 minutes, until the tortillas are just starting to brown and are nice and crisp.  Careful not to over bake, these sweet treats will burn easily.

Next up comes a simple tasty dip to serve with the tortilla snowflakes.

Step 1: Whip up some whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
Step 2: Add in a tablespoon or two of your favorite jam, we added strawberry.
Step 3: Eat up!  It doesn't get a whole lot easier than that!

Yes, my tortilla broke!  These snowflakes are pretty fragile!  Thankfully the kids weren't too concerned and dove right in, snapping yummy pieces off the snowflakes, dipping them into the light and delicious dip, and munching away! 

I hope you'll try this simple wintery treat, I think it would be fun no matter what age you are!

Be blessed,

I'll be sharing this post at a few of these fine link parties:

Sounds delicious! I've had them using corn tortillas and frying them and they are just as good! I love, love, love cinnamon-sugar goodness.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog about my zig zag quilt. I know that was a little while ago. I've been meaning to tell you that I appreciated it.

And I totally plan on trying out these tortilla chips and dip. Looks like fun!
