Tip of the Day April 20

Audrey and I went to the library. There we found a nice book called Hey Kids! You're Cookin' Now! It is subtitled 'A Global Awareness Cooking Adventure,' so I was a little off put by all the extra material in the book. I just want the cooking stuff. However, it has a great number of fun, easy recipes. Here is one:
Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps

  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 6-inch tortillas
  • 1 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 375°F. Measure cinnamon and sugar into shaker to blend. Lay tortillas on cutting board. Use pastry brush to lightly brush tortillas with water. Sprinkle each one with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Stack tortillas on top of each other. With pizza cutter, cut stack into 8 wedges, like a pie. Place tortilla wedges in a single layer on cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 8-9 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from oven with mitts and let cool before serving.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Brush tortillas with water
  2. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over tortillas
  3. Help cut tortillas with her Curious Chef pizza cutter
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Help Audrey cut tortillas
  3. Places crisps in oven
These were such a big hit, even Maurene liked them. The recipe calls for them to be served with fruit salsa. Next time we will include that.
