Two Peas and Their Pod: Cinnadoodles

Saturday, October 25, 2008


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 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...

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!

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

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. =(

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? :)

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!

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 :)

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!!!
