My husband came up with a rather genius idea for chocolate chip snickerdoodles, a few days ago. I was intrigued, but a little too busy with my own things to take time for something like cookies.
Then, not to wax all political on here, but suffice it to say, I was a little bummed about the election results. So I thought some delicious cookies were just the thing. 🙂
I heard good things from this snickerdoodle recipe, and I must say, it did NOT disappoint. So good!
My only change was that before I rolled the balls in cinnamon sugar (mine were about 1-1&1/2 inch balls) I pressed chocolate chips into them in the shape of a cute little smiley face. Then you just roll then in the cinnamon sugar, and make sure they get onto the pan face-up.
Bake exactly as directed, and give them at least a minute or two to firm up. They’re excellent both hot and cold.
I’d recommend using 4-ish chips for the smile, if you do the cute faces, since the dough flattens very evenly, you can really pack the chips in, and they’ll come out very nice.
These are probably my new favorite cookie! I’d have process pictures and everything, but it really was that simple. (Plus, we only had this cookie, plus half of one of his buddies left when I thought to snap a picture of it! They went fast.)
