Crispy Snickerdoodle Wraps

Crunchy Snickerdoodle WrapsToday is the reveal day for May’s Improv Challenge.  This month we are creating food with Cinnamon and Sugar.  How fun is that?  I will be very surprised if there are any savory recipes, but I then, I have been surprised by the creativity of the members of our group on more than one occasion!Crunchy Snickerdoodle WrapsCinnamon and sugar has long been a favorite combination in my house.  I keep a dish of it in my cupboard for special toast or slices of apples when my daughter is being particularly obstinate in choosing what to have for breakfast or snack.  I tried having a sugar shaker full for all of the boys to eat, too, but because they often left a quarter inch thick layer of it on their plates after they ate their toast, I had to resort to clandestine measures.  Crunchy Snickerdoodle WrapsFor this challenge, I created an incredibly easy treat.  There is not really a recipe with measured ingredients.  It’s more of a  “let your imagination be your guide” type dish.  I have it all written out below, but feel free to trade out the fillings for nut or cookie butters, marshmallow fluff or pie fillings.  You could also use powdered sugar instead of the cinnamon/sugar combo, but that would defeat the Improv thing I have going on here.

  2. Very clever, Kristen!

    LOL regarding your boys leaving tons of cinnamon sugar on the plate…Ah the joys of motherhood (or auntie-hood in my case.)

    Thank you as always for your terrific recipes and for hosting very fun parties =)

  3. Oh, these look fantastic, Kristen!!! So many great ideas on how to fill these…I’m sure my family would all find their own favorites! Thanks for hosting and see you SOON!

  4. Oh my yes please! What a super and super easy idea. I am imagining all the different flavors of jam I would use. I think apple and peach would be my favorites! Thanks so much for putting this all together. I love the Monthly Improv Challenge.

  5. These look amazing!! Sorry I’m late to visit from the Improve Challenge but better late than never 🙂 Thanks so much for hosting – it’s good to be back for this one.

    1. So glad to hear you liked them! You can try “pinning” them together with a toothpick next time, if you want them to stay tighter.
