When I was in seventh grade Green Day’s Dookie album had taken over the airwaves and I was in my first and only Home Economics class. The first recipe we learned in the class were these sugary crispy tortilla hearts. These are a great dessert or sweet treat and a perfect finish to our Sesame Scallion Tortilla Tacos.

First, take a tortilla and cut hearts out of it with a pair of kitchen shears. If your young one is helping, they can use safety scissors too. Tortillas are pretty easy to cut through.
