Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles Recipe @pinch

Combining chocolate chip cookies and a Snickerdoodle into one treat is genius! They're crispy outside with a buttery soft center. Rolling the chocolate chip cookies in cinnamon sugar adds flavor to the cookie and provides the snickerdoodle feel. My parents came to help out during my last eight radiation treatments in my fight against breast cancer, so I wanted to bake some cookies. My daddy loves Snickerdoodles, and my husband loves chocolate, so I combined the two, and oh my, they were fantastic and gone in no time!

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Cookies Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 2 3/4 cup(s) sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon(s) cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) soft butter or margarine (2 sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 bag(s) Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips (10 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
Intructions :
  • Combine sifted flour
  • cream of tartar
  • baking soda
  • and salt in a separate bowl.
  • In a standup mixer or separate bowl cream your butter/margarine
  • sugar
  • and eggs until light and fluffy.
  • Next
  • slowly add the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture until dough-like.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. Chill for an hour or so. Chilling makes rolling the dough easier.
  • You will need some cinnamon and sugar to roll the cookie dough in. (I always have this made up and kept on hand). Take sugar about 1/4 cup and then add a tsp or so of cinnamon to it in a small bowl or plastic container. Set aside.
  • Once the dough is chilled
  • take a heaping tablespoon full and roll in a ball with your hands. Roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper then on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in a 350 F preheated oven. Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a soft gooey cookie or 10 minutes for a firm cookie. My daddy likes firm cookies.
  • Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container. Mine didn't make it to a container.
  • Just a little story: After baking these cookies
  • I placed them cookies on a redware dish I had and took them out to my daddy to see if he wanted some. Well
  • I had to run into the house and completely forgot about the cookies. My momma came in with an empty plate and said my daddy wanted a refill! Holy Cow he ate those cookies in less than 20 minutes! My husband only got 2 of those cookies! Needless to say
  • I made another batch. In all reality
  • this batch makes approximately 3 dozen cookies. Plenty for sharing unless your daddy is a Cookie Monster! ]
