Baking Fun...Fall Leaf Tortilla Chips!

   On Monday through Thursday I teach Spanish to my munchkins and then on Fridays, I take off my Spanish Teacher hat and put on my Chef hat!
   Every Friday, we engage the kids in some sort of cooking/baking project. Seeing that the summer-like temps (in autumn), in the North Bay area don't seem to be cooling off anytime soon, we needed something that was either a no bake snack or something that required little baking time.
   And so we made some Leaf Shaped Tortilla Chips!
 Our school has these cute baking mats for the kids to each have their own spot. 
All we needed was corn tortillas and leaf shaped cookie cutters:
Each child was given one corn tortilla and was able to cut out two different leaf shapes.
(We later found out that two tortillas chips were definitely not enough.
Most of the kids wanted more!)
After they had their two tortilla shapes cut out, we brushed on olive oil onto both sides of each one.
Then I sprinkled some salt onto them and popped them in the oven. I let them bake for 4 minutes and then turned them over and let them bake for another 4-5 minutes. 
They came out perfect!
(This batch was a little crispy and brown on the edges, but still yummy!)
Cute, simple and delicious!
Try making your own Tortilla Chips with kiddos! 
Below is the recipe:
Fall Leaf Tortilla Chips:
Corn Tortillas
Olive Oil
Cookie Cutters (any shape)
Pre-heat oven to 350. After chips are cutout, brush on small amounts of olive oil on each side. Bake 4-5 minutes on each side, for no more than a total of 9 minutes. Allow them to cool and enjoy!!
