Only makes 16--believe me, it won't be enough. They are kind of like a snickerdoodle, only better--I think with the addition of cinnamon chips. They are great for the times you do not want a lot of cookies laying around to tempt you...

I made a very happy mistake with my first batch and added the teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the dough. Before realizing that it was meant for the cinnamon & sugar mix to roll the little dough balls in before putting on the baking sheets. My second batch I used unsalted butter and left the cinnamon out of the dough. Either way, they are delicious!!

These were OK. For the first batch I followed the instructions not to flatten but think that was a mistake since the dough didn't spread out on its own at all and I ended up with a pan of lumps that I had to bake about 22 minutes and then the cinnamon chips were burning on the bottoms of the cookies. The next batches I flattened the balls somewhat with a glass and it worked much better, I then only had to bake 16 minutes and they still didn't spread and made quite a thick cookie which my munchers liked. This looks to be the same recipe as #126906 at least the only difference I could see was the name.
