Snowflake cookies

This is an excellent, healthy, and fun recipe to make! It's from the FamilyFun website, go check it out.

10 flour tortillas (fajita size)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup chocolate chips
l/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1. Heat the oven to 350°.

2. Fold each tortilla into quarters and then snip out shapes with clean scissors as if to make a paper snowflake; add a few decorative cuts but maintain some structural integrity (if your tortillas are stiff, soften them in the oven for a minute).

3. A few at a time, place the snowflakes on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 5 to 7 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.

4. Remove the snowflakes from the oven, immediately dot each one with about a dozen evenly spaced chocolate chips, then return the flakes to the oven briefly to melt the chips.

5. Once the chips begin to melt, transfer the snowflakes to a cooling rack and use a butter knife to spread the chips a bit.

6. Pop the iced snowflakes in the fridge for 5 or 10 minutes to harden the chocolate, then put the confectioners sugar in a sieve and shake an even layer across them.

7. Serve on dark-colored plates.

8. Makes 10.

You could personalize this recipe in so many different ways. Use whole grain tortillas too. I used melted Earth Balance spread brushed on them, and then some sugar in the raw and cinnamon sprinkled on. Mmm. :)
