Snickerdoodle-like Cinnamon and White Chip Cookies

Snickerdoodle-like Cinnamon and White Chip Cookies by Picky Palate

I could not for the life of me think of a clever name for these cookies. They have a very “snickerdoodl-y” like taste, but I don’t use cream of tarter or roll them in cinnamon sugar like traditional snikerdoodles, so I was stumped! After some back and forth, “Snickerdoodle-like Cinnamon and White Chip Cookies” were born, lol!

They have a lovely texture and knock your tastebuds out cinnamon white chocolate flavor. My husband said they are one of his very favorites.

Hope you enjoy, have a great rest of your week!

I was jumping up and down at the grocery store when I found cinnamon chips. I know it can be tricky to find them. You can always find them on Amazon too. They are great in cookies, brownies and about anything.

    They look wonderful! Last week I posted Snickerdoodle Cinnamon Chip cookies! I love cinnamon chips but had a hard time finding them til finally I found some at a random grocery store I never usually go to.

    I love that you used white chocolate, too. And pudding mix. Makes them so soft! I just added some to a banana bread recipe. Love it for the soft texture!

    I was wondering if you could tell me the brand and size cookie scoop you use. I have tried many but most seem to break or are too difficult to use. Thanks!

      Hi Anne, I purchased mine from Sur La Table. It should feel nice and sturdy when you squeeze the handle ๐Ÿ™‚

    These look great! So nice that they’re cinnamon but not snickerdoodles. Cinnamon chips are the best!

    These look beautiful and I’m very jealous of both your lovely KitchenAid mixers ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would have been jumping up and down at the cinnamon chips, too! My regular grocer never carries them!

    Those cookies look so good! The next time I visit the US I am so going to have to look for those cinnamon chips in some grocery stores!

    Vera says:

    I’m so lucky! I live near a terrific Mennonite bulk food store, and they always carry mini-cinnamon chips. The minis kind of spread the flavor out through whatever I use them in. They’re very good in oatmeal cookies!!!

  15. 15

    I absolutely need more cookies in my life so this is perfect! Thanks for the craving ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. 16

    I need to source myself some cinnamon chips STAT!!!

    I hate to sound like a dope but you call the chips “white chips” . . .I assume you mean white chocolate but they also do make vanilla chips . . . did you use something in particular?
    Again, I hate to sound dumb!!!!1

    Such fun cookies!!! Have a great weekend Jenny!

    […] their awkward name, Snickerdoodle-like Cinnamon and White Chip Cookies look elegant and dainty. Maybe they should have been called CinnaChip Cookies or SnickerChip […]

    Hi Jenny! These are absolutely gorgeous! How about SnickerChip Cookies? or CinnaChip Cookies? Whatever you call them, they look delicious and I’ve shared them on my wordpress blog where I curate cookie recipes:

    This cookies are so cute! I love how they are a variation of snickerdoodles, not the real thing

    Erin says:

    You can actually make your own cinnamon chips! Here’s the recipe I found.
    Super easy, makes the house smell absolutely heavenly, keeps in the pantry well, and they are actually made out of cinnamon (unlike many of the packaged cinnamon chips).

    Melissa says:

    I almost never reply to blogs, but I made these last night and they were wonderful. I didn’t think I would like them but thought my husband would, we both loved them and so did my girls. The only change I made was use dark brown sugar (because I ran out of regular) but stuck to your recipe and doubled it so I could use the entire bags of chips. They taste like a cinnamon roll in cookie form! Thank you for the recipe!

    Do you think I could use cook and serve pudding instead of instant? My SIL left some in my cabinet and I’m hoping to use them in a recipe soon. Thanks!

    I found the cinnamon chips at Walmart last week when I went into the States looking for baby shower stuff. I think they may have been in Wegman’s also. Looking forward to making these soon. Can I ask where you bought the little milk bottle that is in the picture with the cookies, they would be perfect for the shower. Thanks!

    I just made a batch of these cookies. I don’t care what you call them, they are DELICIOUS! I didn’t have the vanilla pudding mix so I substituted it with butterscotch instant pudding. Only regret… I didn’t DOUBLE the batch! These won’t last but a day in my house!! Thanks for sharing what might just be my family’s new favorite cookie recipe!!

    Kim H says:

    These look like the cookies I am looking for! I just picked up a bag of the new M&M pumpkin spice and thought they would taste better in a cookie than by themselves. Thanks so much for giving me a good cookie base that should taste great with them, though if you made them they would probably taste better ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jaime says:

    I just made these today…They are so good!!! I don’t think they will last long in my house. Thanks for the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ann Whitside says:

    I have two questions: I want to quadruple this recipe. Would it be best to do it in smaller batches? Also, I do not have a stand mixer, just a hand mixer. Do you think I will still get good results with a hand mixer?

    DeeDee says:

    Ok, so I was still swooning over your hot pink Kitchenaid when I opened the very next post to see you using this green one (with pink still in the background)!! My question is, exactly how many awesome- colored stand mixers do you have??? ๐Ÿ™‚ Loving your blog, btw. I’ve been baking 2 years now and a good stand mixer is all I’m still severely missing in my life! Oh, and a donut pan! Lol

    […] had a baby, this cookie would be that delicious little offspring. The original recipe is posted on Picky Palate, but this one uses a different type of pudding in the recipe. My mom made this tasty substitution […]
