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 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup cinnamon chips

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.
