Cookie Carnival: Sassy Cinnamon Cookies

I have decided to join the Cookie Carnival with Tami over at Tami's Kitchen Table Talk.  This is a fun get together once a month where Tami emails two cookie recipes.  I make one or both and post on my blog.  I then email a picture and my blog post to Tami.  At the beginning of the next month she posts a Carnival Round Up of all who participated.  You are not required to participate every month, but it's a fun way to bake new cookie recipes.  It's also fun to see how other people add variety to the recipes as well.  You can find more information on Tami's blog and get her email address from there.  You can also click the Cookie Carnival button on the side of my blog to get more information.

This month I made Sassy Cinnamon Cookies.  This cookie reminded me of a Snickerdoodle with chocolate chips and nuts inside.  I didn't have cinnamon chips.  Very yummy!

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cinnamon-flavored baking chips
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Heat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick pan, heat oven to 350°F). In large bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until creamy. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir in cinnamon chips and pecans.
  2. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Shape dough by 1/4 cupfuls into balls. Roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place balls 3 inches apart on ungreased large cookie sheet (do not flatten).
  3. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until set and light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who was thinking of making these cookies without the cinnamon chips. I cannot find them around my area here in NC. I know that they're out there because I bought them when I lived in PA.

Your cookies look good! Thanks for participating in the Carnival!!

Your comment today made me laugh...about sewing again. I am not making name pillows for Christmas since my time is about up, but I am going to try to make fabric letters for us, and maybe 2-3 more sets for nieces/nephews. We'll see how many I actually make!

These look good with the chocolate chips too! I actually was able to find the cinnamon ones. I know of 1 grocery store here that carries the cinnamon chips, and I always hoard them when I go there!

Glad to have you along with us each month. The Carnival is lots of fun!
