Snickerdoodles with Cinnamon Chips

As you may recall snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. So I knew that when I saw these cookies I would be making them. I am so glad that I did! These are really good, I think even better than the ones that I made before. These were soft and chewy and I loved the extra cinnamon flavor they got from the cinnamon chips. If you have never tried cinnamon chips before I highly recommend them. They are SO good! I finally found them so I was excited to use them in this recipe.

Everyone loved these cookies so I'm glad I doubled the recipe. I only made a few changes. I used half regular sugar and half vanilla sugar because I ran out of regular sugar. I'm not sure if it really made a difference in how they came out but I'm sure it didn't hurt the flavor.

Snickerdoodles with Cinnamon Chips

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/2 cup AP flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cinnamon flavored baking chips

2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla extract and eggs and mix until creamy.

Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined then stir in the cinnamon chips. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together.

Shape the dough into balls and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the balls 3 inches apart on a silpat lined baking sheet. Don't flatten the balls.

Bake for 10 minutes or until set and lightly brown. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

As I posted back in December, I love these cookies and by adding the chips it just took them over the top. Great Job!

I haven't been able to find cinammon chips either - I thought of getting them online, but the cost of the shipping was equal to the chips!

I live in Murrieta, CA and the Albertsons carries them here. I was thinking of adding a touch of cayenne to the cinnamon/sugar mixture for a little kick. I like it hot. Has anyone tried that?
