With the winter weather oppressing much of the nation, and the Winter Olympics keeping us excited, there is celebration in uncomfortable times. Our family celebrates with hot chocolate bars, ice cream, and southern snowflakes. Southern snowflakes?! Yes, we did close our southern cities for ice, or snow, or what many down here call “snice” (mixture of snow and ice – or really, slushy ice, but our kids want snow bad we pretend). Our family has it’s own version.
Recipe for Southern Snowflakes
- Take some packaged, uncooked flour tortillas and cut them into snowflake shapes.
- Fry in hot oil (all the pieces! Don’t you dare throw those cut-outs away!)
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
