"Eat-able" Snowflakes

Who doesn't like to make snowflakes? Even better ones you can EAT! (Bonus: no paper waste or little scraps to endlessly clean up). This is by no means an original idea, but it sure is a FUN and EASY one so we thought we'd share.

What you'll need:

Flour tortillas
clean scissors
cooking spray
cookie sheet
powdered sugar (sprinkles...all that etc. stuff)

Preheat Oven to 400

Step 1: Warm the tortillas up in the microwave (for about 15 seconds). This helps prevent cracking when you fold your tortilla. And we wouldn't want that would we, Boz :)?

Step 2: Fold your tortilla in half, then in half again (aka folded into quarter sections). Cut out snowflake designs with cleaned scissors, unless you not a clean freak, then just use any old scissors. Hopefully they haven't been up anyone's nose.

Step 3: Unfold your snowflake and place it on a greased cookie sheet. Spray the top of the snowflake with some cooking spray. Place it in the oven and bake for a few minutes (I was lazy broiled mine on each side for a bit).

Step 4: When crisp remove them from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar for a snowy effect or whatever you'd like.

Pork out and ENJOY!
SO easy!!! And even your your child can't wield scissors yet, they still enjoy the eating part-- provided they can chew. . .
