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 ¾ cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ 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 ½ 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.

  1. 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…

  2. Super yummy! I’ve never used cinnamon chips – but will need to start. What a great flavor combo!!! Have fun with your family!

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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. =(

  6. 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? ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. grrrr.I cant find cinnamon chips anywhere..I mean come on, its not like I live in the sticks or anything?!!!
    Love your cookies!

  8. who wouldn’t want something that’s “cinnadoodly good”?!? where did you find the cinnamon chips? i have been looking for them… these cookies look great! you can send me a batch anytime ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Maria,

    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!

  10. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. 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!!!

  12. I made these today and they are delicious! Waiting for the kids to get home from school and try them out ๐Ÿ™‚ I will add them to my blog and link to you when I do ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us. I have such fun reading your blog and have shared it with friends too. Is there anyway to put a print button on this recipe? I wanted to make it makes it so much easier if I can print it off.

    1. This is an old recipe so it doesn’t have a print function, sorry! All of my new recipes have printer friendly versions. Sorry about that. You can copy and paste it into a Word doc.

  14. Yum! I’ve made a King Arthur recipe similar concept and I think they call them SuperDoodles. Gotta love those cinnamon chips!

  15. What a great idea. I didn’t even know they made cinnamon chips. They sound super yummy and would probably go great with some spiced cider. Mmmmmm….

  16. I L O V E Snickerdoodles! Never heard of cinnamon chips though. I live in Seattle and I am sure one of our Great grocery stores has them though. Putting it on the next grocery list so I can make them for the holidays! YUM!

  17. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. OMG I found this recipe yesterday, made them. WOW my family loved them. I really like cinnamon chips. great recipe

  18. If you can’t find cinnamon chips in your local store, you could probably find them online somewhere.
