Two Peas and Their Pod



Josh loves snickerdoodles, so I decided to make them for him, but I kicked them up a notch. I added in some cinnamon chips to a basic recipe. The chips, in my opinion, raised these cookies to a whole new level. Don’t get me wrong, I like snickerdoodles, but with the added bursts of cinnamon, HALLELUJAH! These cookies are even more delightful. Make sure you under bake them a bit, they will set up. You want the edges to be crispy and the centers soft. I think I will make these for the holidays…they are CINNADOODLY GOOD!

My dad and stepmom are coming to visit from Illinois. They are arriving this afternoon! I am super excited. My dad is an amazing baker/cook so I am sure we will be having some fun in the kitchen. They will be in Utah for a whole week. Yahoo!! Well, keep having a great weekend everyone!


Adapted from Martha Stewart’s Cookies

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
About a half a bag of cinnamon chips

3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon-more if you love it!

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Put butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Add in cinnamon chips.

2. Stir together cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into round balls; roll in cinnamon sugar. Space 3 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.

3. Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges are golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Don’t overbake. Let cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two, then transfer to a cooling rack.

    I’ve GOT to try these buzzed about chips!

  5. Annie — October 25, 2008 @ 7:07 am

    I am so glad you posted this. I was just recently thinking of making Snickerdoddles and since I have never made them before I was going to start searching for a recipe on-line.
    No need for that now! Thanks for kicking them up with more cinnamon, I love it…

  6. Natashya — October 25, 2008 @ 7:28 am

    They do look like a great cookie to get you into the holiday spirit!

  11. *Priscilla* — October 25, 2008 @ 11:49 am

    the cookies look really good. i need to find the cinnamon chips somewhere – they sound great!

  12. Lisa — October 25, 2008 @ 12:09 pm

    My hubby loves these. Unfortunately I cannot find cinnamon chips in a store here.

  13. Pamela — October 25, 2008 @ 12:12 pm

    I hope you have a nice visit with your Dad. I do like MS recipe for Snickerdoodles, and you have really put them over the top with the Cinnamon chips. I need to go out and search for some of those suckers!

  14. Barbara Bakes — October 25, 2008 @ 12:24 pm

    I agree snickerdoodles are just okay cookies, but I imagine adding the cinnamon chips would put them ove the top!

  15. Life on Pelican Street — October 25, 2008 @ 4:02 pm

    i love cinna chips!

  16. Erica — October 25, 2008 @ 9:24 pm

  17. Sharon — October 25, 2008 @ 10:08 pm

    Being a little bit of a cinnamon addict, I fully appreciate the addition of cinnamon chips. Yum!!

  18. eatme_delicious — October 25, 2008 @ 11:17 pm

    Haha cinnadoodly good! =) I JUST made a batch of these (without the cinnamon chips mind you) yesterday for a friend’s birthday. I always like trying new recipes so there aren’t a lot of things I’ve made more than once or twice but this is one of them! I’ve never seen cinnamon chips anywhere though. =(

  19. Amanda — October 26, 2008 @ 6:25 am

    ooooo thank you ! I am saving this recipe to try, yum!

  20. Tami — October 26, 2008 @ 8:47 am

    MMM! I bet these are really good! I’ll definitely have to try these. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Grace — October 26, 2008 @ 12:42 pm

    clearly, i don’t need to tell you how much i adore these. cinnamon chips are one of the best inventions of all time (although not particularly tasty on their own…), and what could be better than adding them to a batter containing even more cinnamon? :)

  22. Veron — October 26, 2008 @ 2:32 pm

    oooh…sounds delicious. Never tried cinn chips before!

  23. Culinarywannabe — October 26, 2008 @ 3:30 pm

    Love snickerdoodles – what a great way to kick them up!

  24. Leslie — October 26, 2008 @ 5:20 pm

  25. Heather — October 26, 2008 @ 5:29 pm

  26. Meg — October 26, 2008 @ 6:15 pm

    A cinnamon lover’s dream!

  27. Prudy — October 26, 2008 @ 6:15 pm

    Have a great time with your visitors. The cookies look scrumptious.

  28. Mary Ann — October 26, 2008 @ 9:37 pm

    I have looked through this cookbook tons of times and never seen these. They look great, super cinnamony!

  29. Pam — October 26, 2008 @ 10:24 pm

    I love snickerdoodles and these look amazing. I am still trying to find cinnamon chips.

  30. Vera — October 26, 2008 @ 10:38 pm

    These look cute, Maria!

  31. Jodi — October 27, 2008 @ 12:18 am


    I just wanted to let you know that I mentioned your Cinnadoodle cookies in my post today. I think the cinnamon chips sound great, but I didn’t have any on hand at home so I’ll have to try them another time!

  32. Amanda — October 27, 2008 @ 4:54 am

    WalMart didn’t have hem, neither did the big grocery store, low and behold I found cinnamon chips at the local in town store. I really didn’t think they would have them. I hope to make these in the next couple of days :)

  33. The Caked Crusader — October 27, 2008 @ 10:49 am

    I’m rather partial to a snickerdoodle. We don’t get cinnamon chips in the UK…which might be just as well as I can see myself pouring a bagful of them straight into my mouth!!!

  34. Usha — October 27, 2008 @ 12:33 pm

    These look really fantastic…

  35. Live.Love.Eat — October 27, 2008 @ 12:52 pm

    Awesome. I have never bought cinnamon chips. Are they in the regular baking aisle?

  36. Allie — October 28, 2008 @ 10:26 am

    What a tasty looking cookie can’t wait to try it with the rest of my cinn chips!

  37. Lynne — October 29, 2008 @ 4:49 am

    Yum! I stockpile cinnamon chips whenever I see them! These look delish.

  38. Rosie — October 29, 2008 @ 8:27 am
