Cinnamon Tortilla Jack-O-Lanterns

This was a cute, fun, and easy activity as well as a yummy little treat.  Last winter, I posted about the Cinnamon Snowflakes that we made using flour tortillas and cinnamon sugar.  These cute Jack-O-Lanterns use the same "recipe" but with a different cutting technique.




Here's what you need:

  • small flour tortillas
  • cinnamon sugar
  • cooking spray (or melted butter)





Here's what you do:

1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cut a jack-o-lantern face in your tortilla.  We used a butter knife and it worked just fine (However, it was a bit difficult to cut rounded shapes, so triangles and straight lines were easier than circles)








3.  Put your jack-o-lantern face on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray (or brush with melted butter).  Then sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.


4.  Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the tortilla begins to turn golden brown (check often).  Let cool and then enjoy.



We also made an easy Pumpkin Fluff Dip to go with our new Jack-O-Lanterns.  

Just combine:

1 (15oz) can of pumpkin puree 
1 small package instant vanilla pudding mix  
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Then fold in one 8oz. container of cool whip.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.


The Pumpkin Fluff Dip was also super yummy with cinnamon graham crackers and apple slices.
