Cinnamon Snowflakes!

I came across this idea in an issue of Family Fun and thought it was awesome!  It meets my criteria of easy, fun and inexpensive, plus it's tasty too!



flour tortillas
cinnamon sugar
cooking spray
kitchen scissors or clean pair of kids' scissors

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Fold your tortilla in half, then in half again.  (I used 10-inch tortillas, but a smaller size would work too).  If your tortilla breaks when you're trying to fold, microwave it for a few seconds to help it soften up.

3.  Using the scissors, cut the tortilla just like you would cut out a paper snowflake.

4.  Place your tortilla snowflake on a cookie sheet, spray with cooking spray (or brush with melted butter) and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

5.  Bake for about 5-10 minutes or until the tortilla begins to turn golden brown (check often). 
6.  Allow to cool, then enjoy!  My kids liked breaking off pieces of their snowflakes and dipping them in pudding cups.  I bet yogurt, jams or even syrup would be yummy if your kids are dippers too.

** I'm sure you could sprinkle savory toppings too, like Old Bay, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, etc.  (Hmmm, might have to try that next!  :)  )


  1. Laura ~ This is such a great idea!!! LOVE IT!!!

  2. Sounds yummy! Wish I had kids so I would have an excuse for making them! ;)

    1. I do something similar cut the tortilla the same but cook it in oil and dust it with powdered sugar. The kids love them and they look just like snowflakes.

  3. We just made this, cute as can be and easy! Thanks so much, I would have never thought of it!

  4. Great idea!! Food made fun...kids love to be actively involved.

  5. Such a great idea! Totally gonna do this!

  6. Found this on Pinterest, doing it with my kids tonight!

  7. This is a great snack for adults; as well....lighter than baked cookies and healthier than greasy fries or potato chips!! Thanks!
