I have been searching for cinnamon chips everywhere. I love cinnamon, so I knew that cinnamon chips would be right up my alley. I had almost given up and was going to order them online until I was browsing Walmart. And guess what...there they were on one of their baking endcaps! So, I did what any normal person would do--a happy dance and then I bought four bags. And then I busted them open as soon as I got home. Hey...at least I made it home first. I have been known to tear into a loaf of bread in the mile from the grocery store to my house because it was too tempting.

I debated about what to do with these four bags of amazing goodness and I settled on snickerdoodles for my first experience. And they were a huge success. I love my snickerdoodle recipe. They're soft and they stay soft, which is a very important quality for cookies in my opinion. Studded with these cinnamon chips, they are incredible. If you don't have or can't find cinnamon chips (but check out Walmart!), they are just as good without them. I served these to a group of guys who were watching an Ohio State football game, and there was one left at the end of it. Considering there were only three guys eating them, I'd say that's a very successful cookie recipe.

1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup cinnamon sugar

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and beat on low until combined. Add in the cream of tartar, baking soda, and vanilla and mix until combined. Mix in the flour until incorporated. Fold in the cinnamon chips.
Form the dough into one-inch balls and roll in the cinnamon sugar. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the balls about two inches apart from each other. Bake for 12 minutes until the edges are set and let cool on the sheet for one minute. Remove to a flat surface to cool.

Hey check at Walmart! I hate the place but I searched so many other stores and found them on a Holiday Endcap! I bought 6 bags and don't know if that was enough to hold me over!

Cinnamon chips can be found in your local grocery near the Hershey chips. PR at a super Walmart.

You can also buy cinnamon chips through King Arthur Flour's website. I also had trouble finding them.


Last year I looked EVERYWHERE for cinnamon chips and finally got smart and looked for a store locator on the Hershey website! There were only like two random stores in a 30 mile radius from me that carried them - I literally bought 4 bags too!

Cinnamon chips and snickerdoodles make perfect sense! Such a wonderful combination!

I always hate how my snickerdoodles come out flat. These look perfect. Going to Walmart tomorrow to find the cinnamon chips. I cannot wait to make these.
Thank you for sharing!

Snicker doodles are my favorites. They are one of the most delicious bakes but the most disappointing thing is that they are not available in many shops and are hard to prepare in home. Anyway I am happy that you shared the recipes and preparation method here!
