Not only are these a great idea for quick dinners, they are an even better idea for after-school snacks! A few of these will have your kids quiet for at least 15 minutes, which during the holiday season is a godsend! To keep them occupied longer, teach them how to make the snowflakes themselves!

Yields about 6 quesadillas


  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Snow flake cookie cutter


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet.
  2. Spread the two cheeses liberally over one of the tortillas. Place the other tortilla on top of the one topped with cheese and press the ends down a little to keep the cheese inside.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Let cool for about 2 minutes.
  4. After the quesadillas have cooled slightly, carefully cut out snowflake shapes with your cookie cutter. You may need to push down hard or use a knife to cut the thicker parts of the tortilla. Top each snowflake with a dollop of sour cream and enjoy!
