California Feature: Cinnamon Sugar Halloween Crisps
Ever since Make & Taste started, Jax and I’ve been in the kitchen a TON more…and Jax is loving it! So when I came across this simple and fun recipe I knew he’d be all over it! And he was! I heard “Mommy I wanna do it” from start to finish. Oh, and don’t tell anyone, but “Can I taste?” was also on repeat during this one…those cute little fingers “tasted” the sugar/cinnamon mix one too many times! This one was definitely a fun one because he was able to help with every step of the process.
These are so delicious and quick and easy to make we will probably be making them with our Thanksgiving cookie cut outs, Christmas cut outs and any other holiday I have cut outs for…and maybe some circle and stars on non-holidays! Jax has been asking for them since we gobbled them all up, so I’m thinking my next Halloween batch I’m going to try to color the melted butter orange or maybe black for the bats and cats!
Quick Tip –
1. My cookie cut outs are plastic and I think metal ones would work much easier when cutting out the shapes. We had to press pretty hard to get the plastic ones through the flour tortillas.

Camping, exploring and getting dirty…three of Jax and Milisa’s favorites things! Making memories though is top priority. Knowing little ones grow up way too fast, Milisa tries to make as many memories as she can with Jax. And that usually means making memories in the great outdoors as a family…and with framily. Milisa is getting her teaching credential and currently in the student teaching phase, which is the last leg of her teaching credential. After having Jax, she realized how absorbent little minds were and wanted to make an impact. Milisa also has fun incorporating her love of adventuring with her love of creating - follow her on Instagram @adventurecreates.
