I’ve loved snickerdoodles ever since childhood. They are the quintessential holiday cookie.
Clearly, chewy and soft is how we love our cookies. Chewy Soft Oatmeal Cookies, Chewy Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Chewy Soft Pumpkin Spice Cookies? Plus, these best-ever Chewy Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies just went up and our secret is out.
These chewy, soft snickerdoodles are my favorite recipe for snickerdoodles out of all the batches I’ve ever baked up. They’re soft, chewy, a perfect thickness (not flat!) and loaded with cinnamon goodness…
I first started baking cinnamony-sugar snickerdoodles in high school, and if I recall correctly, it was a recipe that used shortening. Fast forward to many, many, many years later. No more shortening for me.
Chewy Soft Texture
These chewy soft snickerdoodles have made their way to Christmas parties and family gatherings, and are adored by cinnamon-sugar lovers every time.
My favorite part is that these cookies stay soft and chewy for days. No need to lose sleep over these guys – they won’t dry out or get crumbly. Go ahead and make them ahead of time for parties or gift-giving.
Bring on the Cinnamon Morsels
I whipped up several batches of these snickerdoodles, and decided to load ’em up with seasonal cinnamon chips (yum!)
If you haven’t tried Hershey’s cinnamon chips yet, I’d highly recommend running to the store before the holiday season is over. Cinna chips magically appear during the holidays and then they vanish into thin air.
I’m planning on grabbing a few more bags of cinnamon chips so I can sprinkle them into baked goodies after Christmas is over.
Fluffy, soft, chewy, and loaded with cinnamon. These cookies keep well, but don’t expect them to last long. Enjoy!Print
