Cinnamon Cookies

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by grandma2969

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!!
