Sweet Tortilla Snowflakes

Recipe and picture from Family Fun

6 flour tortillas
Canola or vegetable oil for baking
Confectioners' sugar
Edible glitter (optional)

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Warm the tortillas
(about 15 seconds) in the microwave. Individually fold
the tortillas in half once and then in half again, so that
you end up with a shape that resembles a wedge of pie
(it will be thick). Using clean scissors, cut triangle, circles,
or squares out of the edges, as if you were making
paper snowflakes. Unfold the tortillas. Lightly brush
the tops of the snowflakes with canola or vegetable oil
and place them on a cookie sheet slightly apart.
Bake them until lightly browned and crisp
(about 4 minutes). Sift confectioners' sugar on the
snowflakes while warm. For an extra sparkly effect,
you can sprinkle on a bit of edible glitter.
