Favorite Ingredient Friday - 4th of July Edition

I found this recipe for Crispy Cheese Stars from Family Fun

You'll need 2 star-shaped cookie cutters, one slightly smaller than the other (ours measured 4 and 2 1/4 inches between opposite points).

1. Flour tortillas
2. Sliced cheese (cheddar, provolone, or mozzarella)
3. Chili powder or paprika

1. Heat the oven to 350°. Use the larger cookie cutter to cut out stars from flour tortillas (about 5 per 10-inch tortilla). It's easy for kids to do if you use a rolling pin to roll back and forth over the cutter. Bake the stars on a foil-covered cookie sheet for 5 minutes.

2. Use the smaller cookie cutter to cut out an equal number of cheese stars from the sliced cheese and place them atop the tortilla ones. Bake the stars for 2 more minutes or so until the cheese melts.

3. Sprinkle the stars with chili powder or paprika and let them cool before serving.

Not that I have one, but if one had a maple leaf cookie cutter, that would make a great Canada Day snack, too.

My daughter will love these. She'll eat anything if I put cheese on it.
