Cookie Carnival—Sassy Cinnamon Cookies

DSCF2378

I really can’t believe how fast November has come and gone.  I thought I’d get my post up for Cookie Carnival. 

Cookie Carnival

One of the cookies we could choose to make this month is Sassy Cinnamon Cookies found at the Betty Crocker website.  These cookies are snickerdoodles on steroids.  They are a thick cookie with that familiar snickerdoodle taste with pecans and cinnamon chips added for extra flavor and crunch. 

The recipe suggests making the cookies with 1/4 cup balls of dough.  HUGE.  I make them with about two tablespoons of dough and they still turned out plenty big.  They are good.  The only change I would make if I made them again is to either bake them less time (I baked mine 12 minutes and they are just a little too crispy) or I would bake them at 350 degrees instead of the 375 degrees in the recipe.  We like soft and chewy snickerdoodles, they are actually one of Kevin’s favorite cookies.  But he didn’t care for how crispy these were.

You can join and bake along with Cookie Carnival, too.  Check out how over at Tami's Kitchen Table Talk.  She’ll also posts a round up of everyone’s cookies each month.  (Thanks, Tami!)

I have never heard of cinnamon chips before. They probably needed a higher temperature and longer time because the recipe makes them bigger. :)

These look terrific Katrina! I'd omit the pecans, but otherwise, wouldn't change a thing. I'll have to give them a try during the cookie month (also known as December) :)

These do look cinnamony good. I recently found cinnamon chips and also fell in love with them. These look like a worthy way of using them.

Kerstin said...

Oh, I should use some of my cinnamon chips to make these - they look scrumptious!

Tessa said...

Snickerdoodles on steroids is definitely a great explanation for these! Dropping the temperature works great to help keep them a little softer. I baked mine at 350, as I never bake cookies at higher temperatures that that because we like our cookies a little softer too.

I like sassy cookies and snickerdoodles with cinnamon chips are a favorite around here.
