My parents came to help out during my last eight radiation treatments in my fight against breast cancer, so I wanted to bake some cookies. My daddy loves Snickerdoodles, and my husband loves chocolate, so I combined the two, and oh my, they were fantastic and gone in no time!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Combining chocolate chip cookies and a Snickerdoodle into one treat is genius! They're crispy outside with a buttery soft center. Rolling the chocolate chip cookies in cinnamon sugar adds flavor to the cookie and provides the snickerdoodle feel.

How To Make ghirardelli chocolate chip snickerdoodles

  • Flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
    Combine sifted flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Creaming butter, sugar, and eggs.
    In a standup mixer or separate bowl cream your butter/margarine, sugar, and eggs until light and fluffy.
  • Dry ingredients added to the butter.
    Next, slowly add the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture until dough-like.
  • Folding in chocolate chips.
    Fold in the chocolate chips. Chill for an hour or so. Chilling makes rolling the dough easier.
  • Cinnamon and sugar in a bowl.
    You will need some cinnamon and sugar to roll the cookie dough in. (I always have this made up and kept on hand). Take sugar about 1/4 cup and then add a tsp or so of cinnamon to it in a small bowl or plastic container. Set aside.
  • Rolling dough in cinnamon sugar.
    Once the dough is chilled, take a heaping tablespoon full and roll in a ball with your hands. Roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Rolled cookies on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
    Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper then on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Baking the cookies.
    Bake in a 350 F preheated oven. Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a soft gooey cookie or 10 minutes for a firm cookie. My daddy likes firm cookies.
  • Cookies right as they came out of the oven.
    Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container. Mine didn't make it to a container.

    Just a little story: After baking these cookies, I placed them cookies on a redware dish I had and took them out to my daddy to see if he wanted some. Well, I had to run into the house and completely forgot about the cookies. My momma came in with an empty plate and said my daddy wanted a refill! Holy Cow he ate those cookies in less than 20 minutes! My husband only got 2 of those cookies! Needless to say, I made another batch. In all reality, this batch makes approximately 3 dozen cookies. Plenty for sharing unless your daddy is a "Cookie Monster"!
