You read that right. These cookies are amazing and are very simple to make.
What are they you ask?
Cinnamon Chip Cookies!!!!
Did you even know they made cinnamon chips?
I didn’t, but years ago when I was working, a volunteer with one of the shelters we worked with brought in a batch of them and they went quick. I had completely forgotten about them until last year around Thanksgiving when I was buying supplies to do some baking and ran across them. You can only get them in November and December where I live, but you can order them online year round. I of course made some last year and everyone loved them. Now that the holidays are approaching again, I figured I’d share this recipe I used to make the last batch I did as I wait to find more in the stores next month.
Basically it’s an adapted version of a chocolate chip cookie, so you can use this recipe for either cookies you just use chocolate chips or cinnamon chips depending on your mood. It makes great cookies for both.
Cinnamon Chip Cookies
Makes 20-24 cookies
- 1/2 cup butter, unsalted at room temperature
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar ( I used vanilla, but regular will do)
- 2 Tablespoons turbinado sugar
- 3/4 cup & 2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 & 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- About 1 & 1/2 cups cinnamon chips (adjust your desired amount, I use no more than 3/4 of the bag)
1) Heat oven to 360°
2) In large bowl, cream butter & sugars together with a mixer.
3) Add egg & vanilla and beat until incorporated.
4) Beat in sea salt & baking soda until combined.
5) Beat in flour on low speed. It will look dry and crumble.
6)Fold in cinnamon chips with spoon.
7) Spoon onto baking sheet and baked for 11-12 minutes.
8) Let cookies rest on baking sheet no more than 10 minutes before removing.
And your done!
Everyone who has tried one has absolutely loved them, so I’m pretty sure you will too. The next time you’re in the store, make sure to check for the cinnamon chips. They’re usually on the holiday baking displays by the chocolate chips.
Enjoy Your Adventure,
