Tortilla Snowflakes

by Jill Anton (Toronto Canada)
  • Per child:
  • 1 9" soft tortilla
  • a little butter for frying
  • lots of icing sugar
  • pair of scissors
Fold the tortilla in half, and then in half again. Give the child a clean pair of scissors and have them cut out that when you open up the tortilla it looks like a snowflake.

Melt some butter in a frying pan and cook the tortilla for a couple of minutes on each side until it just starts to turn golden. Remove from pan and put onto a large tray or plate that has liberal amounts of icing sugar on it.

When the "snowflake" is coated, eat it and enjoy!
** Demonstrate on paper the day beforehand how to make paper snowflakes.
