Tortilla Hearts & Snowflakes

My creativity has been lacking this week.  We only played a few games and did this one semi-creative thing for snack.  I have been sick with various things from an intense sinus infection, exhaustion, cold, cough...lovely stuff...please don't e-mail me advice on how to get better...thanks.  My husband has just about the same thing as I do.  Thank goodness for the snow...maybe we can rest a few days and have an excuse not to leave the house.  So I am off to get our groceries for the week in just a bit with the kiddos, but I thought I would share this one food related activity this week....maybe you are going to be snowed in this weekend and want to try something that the whole family would enjoy!  I did this last year...and the enthusiasm was still there!

Soft shell tortillas (1 for each person)
Vegetable oil or canola oil
Powdered sugar and other things to decorate the tortilla with...we used frosting spray and sprinkles.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Warm tortillas in microwave for 15 seconds. 
Cut out desired shape.  We did 3 hearts and 1 snowflake.
Lightly brush the tortillas with one of the oils
Bake on a cookie sheet for approximately 5 minutes or until lightly brown
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and other toppings....and enjoy!!

As you can see from our photos...we are still in our jammies at 10am...and I don't think anyone has brushed there hair yet.
