Cinnamon Chip Surprise Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by mom_of_4

I found this on a web site a year ago. This is a nice christmas cookie. My kids love them!! After I put the dough on the cookie sheet, I like to lighty press them down with a spoon and slighty flatten them. If you don't, they won't spread out as they bake.

Delicious and smell great while baking. I made these for a cookie exchange. I just mixed up the dough and froze in balls to send home with all the girls. When ready to bake you just need to place on a baking sheet. Everyone loved them.
