Crispy Cheese Stars Recipe

Crispy Cheese Stars Recipe

Turn tortillas into a stellar snack with this easy recipe. 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).


  • Flour tortillas
  • Sliced cheese (cheddar, provolone, or mozzarella)
  • Chili powder or paprika


  1. Heat the oven to 350ยบ. 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.
