Double Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Cookies

One of my favorite things about fall is that I feel like I can start baking again. When it's 90°+ outside, I don't like heating up the oven. But once the temperature starts dropping, I dig out the cookbooks and look for new goodies to try. I like cooking alright, but I LOVE baking! Cinnamon is one of those flavors that just says fall to me. Not only does it taste yummy, but boy does it make the house smell good.

These cookies are similar to Snickerdoodles. Actually, think of them as Snickerdoodles on steroids. Not only do they have that crunchy cinnamon sugar coating on the outside, but they are loaded with cinnamon chips for an extra blast of cinnamony goodness. So stinkin' yummy served barely warm with a glass of cold milk. Ah yes, bring on the fall! Of course, these really are too good to be saved only for fall, so feel free to make them anytime. :)

Double Cinnamon Snickerdoodles

1/2 cup butter, slightly melted
1/2 cup margarine, slightly melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup cinnamon chips
3 Tbsp sugar + 2 tsp cinnamon

Beat butter and sugar for 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Combine dry ingredients and stir in with the cinnamon chips. Mix together lightly. Roll dough in balls, then roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes.

-Makes about 3 dozen

Notes:
-Yes, they can be made with either all butter or all margarine, but they really are best with some of each. Trust me.

  1. These look so delicious!!

  2. I have never heard of cinnamon chips. Where do you get them? Thanks

    • They are in the baking section near the chocolate chips. My grocery store and local Walmart carry them year round, but I think in some places they are only sold seasonally. They should be available now that fall is approaching. Hope you can find some!

  3. WOW, looks amazing :) Love your blog
