I saw this idea on Family Fun recently. I am in the process of planning a snow day themed party, and immediately thought this would be an excelllent treat to serve.
Start with 6 small tortillas. Heat them in the mircowave for 15 seconds to make them soft and easy to fold.
Fold the tortilla and cut it with a pair of kitchen shears like you would a paper snowflake. If your kids are bigger or if you have scissors safe for smaller children this is a fun activity for the kids to do. They do not need to be perfect, all snowflakes are different.
Unfold the tortilla and see your creation.
Coat the snowflakes with coat of vegetable oil on both sids and bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 3-4 minutes.
Coat the snowflakes with powered sugar. This part was a bit messy so I covered them on a cookie sheet.
The finished snowflakes are sweet and yummy. They taste a bit like an elephant ear, but are much healthier because they are baked and not fried. They are also quick to make, you can make a batch start to finish in less than 10 minutes.
