Crispy Snow Flake Snacks

Here is a delicious snack that is also a fun project to do! Naturally it's very easy, too!

Start with a flour tortilla and fold it in half. Fold in one side like a triangle, and then the other side under so it's all folded into a triangle now.

Here's the fun part: bite around the edges! When you open it up again you'll have a snowflake! Molly (4) really liked this part - she was super hungry when we started so getting a few nibbles of our snack before it was ready was a real plus for her.

When you're finished making your snowflakes, lay them out on a foil-lined baking sheet and spray them lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon, (or in Molly's case, POUR on the sugar... which I then had to scrape off...) Bake them at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, until slightly browned and crispy.

You can also sprinkle yours with powdered sugar after they're baked so they're white like real snowflakes! Ben (1) approved of this yummy snack when he woke up from his nap. They're easy to break apart and share... which Molly of course did!
