I’ve had my eye on cinnamon chips for a long time now but haven’t gotten around to buying them. Part of me thought, what will I ever use these for? Turns out they are stinking good and I’ll just so happen to use them in evvvverrrything. The thing that finally made me pull the trigger on the purchase (and oh yeah I bought six packages from Amazon), was Rebecca’s beautiful (no-knead!) cinnamon English muffin bread. As soon as I saw that recipe in all of its buttery toasted goodness, I finally bought the cinnamon chips. I’m here to tell you — that bread recipe is a winner…and so are these cookies.
These cookies taste like a cinnamon roll in cookie form. Sweet, chewy and full of great cinnamon flavor. I love the cinnamon flavor throughout these cookies thanks to ground cinnamon but the real gems are the cinnamon chips – little bold morsels of cinnamon that give you a pop of warm cinnamon flavor.
They are ridiculously easy to make too. The dough comes together like a typical cookie dough — cream the butter and sugar, mix in the dry ingredients and then stir in those magical cinnamon chips. Roll them into fairly small sized balls and then give them a good coating of powdered sugar. Once that’s done, all that is left to do is bake! Oh and devour of course.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
- about 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a stand mixer, combine butter and sugar and mix on medium speed until combined and light in color. Add vanilla and egg and beat again until combined.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in cinnamon chips by hand.
- Roll into small balls (1-2 tablespoons) and then roll in powdered sugar until coated. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes or until no longer shiny. Pleeeease don’t overbake these — they need to be chewy!

Husband’s take: I don’t think he tried these! He literally has hardly been home with his crazy work schedule. I sent most of these over to my neighbor’s house and her and her husband loved them.
Changes I would make: None!
