It’s snowing here in Minneapolis, again! This collage caught my eye and the title “Catching Snowflakes” was so fitting for today. Just had to share. Isn’t this original art the cutest? The creative came from Aly Marcotte’s 3rd graders and posted on Artisan des Arts blog. All that talent in one classroom!
These Tortilla Snowflakes are today’s Recipe for Fun. If your house is anything like ours, you’ll find this is a great cook together for the whole family.
Snowflake Tortillas for a snowy day.
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Warm the tortillas (about 15 seconds) in the microwave.
- Individually fold the tortillas in half once and then in half again, so that you end up with a shape that resembles a wedge of pie (it will be thick). Using clean scissors, cut triangle, circles, or squares out of the edges, as if you were making paper snowflakes. Unfold the tortillas.
- Lightly brush the tops of the snowflakes with canola or vegetable oil and place them on a cookie sheet slightly apart.
- Bake them until lightly browned and crisp (about 4 minutes). Sift confectioners’ sugar on the snowflakes while warm. For an extra sparkly effect, you can sprinkle on a bit of edible glitter. Makes 6.
Now, go ahead and catch some snowflakes at your house.
