I love cinnamon chips and am always looking for a way to use them. Make sure to stock up on them during the holiday season so you have plenty to last during the year. —Marietta Slater, Justin, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • DOUGH:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash salt
  • 1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. For spiced sugar, mix first six ingredients.
In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening, sugar and 2 tablespoons spiced sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in baking chips. Refrigerate, covered, until firm enough to shape, about 1 hour.
Shape dough into 1-in. balls; roll in remaining spiced sugar. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake until set, 11-13 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 6 dozen

Test Kitchen tips
  • The texture is soft and crisp at the same time, just like a regular snickerdoodle, but spiced sugar mixture and cinnamon chips take these to a new level.
  • DON"T USE - IN HEADNOTE Some stores only carry cinnamon chips during the holidays. Consider stocking up so you can enjoy these cookies all year long.

    "I thought I followed this recipe exactly but my cookies were very dry and they never flattened. Is there perhaps an ingredient missing?"
