Cinnamon Chip Gems

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by LilPinkieJ

These are very good. They aren't too difficult either. I love the flavor of the dough and the sweet filling is very nice. I like that you put the number of chips and not a measurement. It's a bit of a pain to measure out some things, such as baking chips. I will be making these again later this month for a ladies bible study. Made and Reviewed for 123 Hit Wonders - Thanks! :)
