Cinnamon Chip Surprise Cookies

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix flour with baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Combine butter, the sugars, pudding mix, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl; beat until smooth and creamy.
  3. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture; then stir in morsels and nuts. (Batter will be stiff.).
  5. Roll 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie and roll in the sugar/ cinnamon topping mixture.
  6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

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.

Wonderful, easy, delicious! Some I flattened, some I didn't - great both ways! I was so excited to find a different recipe to use cinnamon chips in! A step up from a snickerdoodle...perfect for fall/winter!
