Well this time the weatherman nailed it and the snow is falling furiously. Most flights at the MSP airport have been cancelled and many schools are cancelled as well. We like to turn snow days into at home family fun days. An all time favorite when the white stuff is blanketing our streets and landscape is to make these Tortilla Snowflakes. Their creations always leave a memorable (sometimes messy) time spent together in the kitchen. Give it a try and let us know if your like them as much as we do at our house.
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 extrasparkly effect, you can sprinkle on a bit of edible glitter. Makes 6.
Speaking of Tortillas, look at this sweet little bundle of joy swaddled in a Tortilla.
Not a Naughty Gnome joke.
The set is of a soft 100% cotton flannel tortilla ready to envelop your cutie keeping her cuddled, secure, and looking deliciously adorable. A matching hat provides the perfect topping! When it comes to standout baby gifts, this set is the whole enchilada.
