…Whoa. I promise that I know words other than ones that start with C. Anyway. I’m a firm believer that everything is better with a bit of cinnamon, and that there’s nothing more delicious than a classic Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie. I decided to combine the best of both worlds with these cookies. I made these for some friends the first time and forgot to take pictures..but definitely had zero issue with making them again! My uncle’s response after trying them was “It tastes like Halloween.” Cinna-success.
Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes about 48 cookies (I can never get 60 out of the Tollhouse recipe)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cinnamon chips (or more!)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 °F.
Beat together the butter, both sugars, and vanilla until creamed. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Gradually add this mixture to the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and cinnamon chips.
Drop using a rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they’re nice and browned on the edges. Allow to cool and then enjoy!
To be honest…I didn’t measure out the cinnamon so I have NO idea how much was in there. Use your nose to see if it seems cinnamony enough. Start small though, because you don’t want to overpower the cookies too much. Or maybe you do. Which is cool too.
