I was looking for a new/classic recipe idea for A and I to make and I came across this recipe:
I went through the recipe and made some adjustments to update it and added my new factor: chocolate chips.
Here’s the recipe! Enjoy!
Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles
(Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Gardens: The New Junior Cookbook)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup of chocolate chips
For topping: 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
With a mixer: cream softened butter, then add in sugar and mix until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and cream of tartar.
Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture until just mixed.
Stir in chocolate chips.
In a small bowl mix together sugar and cinnamon for the topping.
Scoop tablespoon size amounts of dough and roll in the sugar/cinnamon topping. Place about an inch a part on parchment or silpat lined cookie sheets. Bake for 9 minutes until set and slightly golden. Don’t over bake! Makes about 24 cookies.
