The first time I got around to making snickerdoodles, I was torn between finally making them and making chocolate chip cookies. I decided that I should just combine them and now it's my go-to cookie recipe. I made them by adding chocolate chips to my snickerdoodle recipe.

Printable recipe

  • 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
  • 1 c. chocolate chips

3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon-more if you love it!

1) Preheat oven to 350F. 
2) Wisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. 

3) Put butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer.
4) Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
5) Mix in eggs, one at a time. 
6) Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. 
7) Add chocolate chips and stir in by hand.
8) In a seprate bowl, stir together cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar. 
9) Shape dough into round balls; roll in cinnamon sugar.
10) Space 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
11) Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges are golden, 12 to 14 minutes. 
12) Let cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two, then transfer to a cooling rack.
