Cinnamon chips take Snickerdoodles up a notch in these Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodles! 


Dough Ingredients:

  • 23/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 11/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 11/2 cups cinnamon chips, optional

Coating Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat until a smooth dough forms. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Cover and refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  4. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon for the coating. Shape dough into 1-inch round balls. Roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on the prepared baking sheets a few inches apart. Flatten each cookie to about 1/2-inch thick.
  5. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until they are light golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Notes: Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 10-14 days.
