How To Make It

1. Take 1 tortilla and warm it in the microwave for 5–10 seconds so it will fold easily. Fold the round tortilla in half and then fold it in half again.

2. Using a clean pair of scissors, cut your tortilla like you would a paper snowflake.

3. Take your melted butter and a silicone brush, and brush 1 side of the tortilla with melted butter until lightly and evenly covered.

4. Mix your sugar and cinnamon together in a dish. Sprinkle your tortilla with a light even layer of cinnamon sugar.

5. Repeat this process for all 8 tortilla snowflakes.

6. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Place your snowflake tortillas on a greased baking pan (2 snowflakes per pan). Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until nice and crispy. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
