I've been trying to get up the motivation to make sugar cookies all week. First I was out of sugar, then oil, and now appropriately cheerful sprinkles. And somewhere in the stalling, I realized, "nobody is excited about this except me." And that's OK, but I wondered if there were an easier solution. I'm always trying to get the (food allergic and picky) Bibliophile to eat a greater variety of foods, and when he took some of my corn tortilla the other night, I started thinking about ways I could incorporate them into his limited diet. An idea was born.
Today, I cut a few tortillas into wedges and toasted them in the oven with cinnamon and sugar. He ate the whole plate! Later, I thought I'd give the Christmas cookie cutters a try on them.
I just cut out the shapes, then sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar, and baked them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, or until crunchy.
They cut out so cleanly that I baked the background too, to present to the Bibliophile as a little "puzzle" snack when he wakes up from his nap. Next time, I'll do this with smaller cutters, so it is more of a puzzle. I have a feeling I'll be making a lot of these this week. I always have trouble using up the bags of corn tortillas we buy.
