Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Well this is embarrassing. I was so sure I knew where I put the recipe for these cookies! No dice. I can’t find it!! I know it’s around here somewhere, so I’ll keep looking and edit the post later once I find it.

Snickerdoodles are one of my favourite cookies, and these ones turned out great. They’re extremely light, very fluffy and just a bit crumbly. The chocolate is nice too – it’s not overpowering. The cookies still taste like a familiar snickerdoodle, but with a hint of cocoa. Besides, I’ll take chocolate in anything!

I doubled (or maybe even tripled, can’t remember) this recipe when I made it, so just keep that in mind for pictures. Beat together the butter and sugar…

Beat that together, and then you can start mixing your dry ingredients.

Am I the only one who sometimes mixes dry things with a whisk? Haha…I probably am. Sometimes I think it works better, sometimes I just haven’t done the dishes and the whisk is all I have left!

Add the two together and start mixing! It’s times like these I wish I had a standing mixer. I know, I know…just wait until I try bread…I know!

I could just eat it now, thanks.

sugar and cinnamon, goes well on anything!

Better to bake it though! Throw some cinnamon and sugar together to roll the cookies in. Let me just say I love cinnamon and sugar (especially on crepes with butter!).

After what seems like forever (I’m starting to think I must have tripled the recipe!), we’ve finally rolled our first batch. And in typical form, I’ve crowded the cookies too close together.

that's a lot of cookies

See what I mean? Luckily none of them suffered any serious damage.

and we're done!

(I promise, I’ll look for the recipe tonight and post it as soon as I find it!)
