White chocolate snickerdoodles – a perfectly soft snickerdoodle cookie with white chocolate chips and the classic cinnamon sugar coating.
Are you a white chocolate chip person? Or do you prefer semisweet chips in your cookies. Some people even told me they like milk chocolate chips in their cookies! Not me, it’s too sweet that way. (something I rarely say. My husband is a white chocolate chip person and these white chocolate snickerdoodles happen to be his favorite cookies that I make.
He doesn’t like macadamia nuts, so the traditional white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are out of the question for him. So the combination of white chocolate and cinnamon sugar is just right for him. To set the record straight, I also love these cookies! I love just about any cookie you give me, unless its dry and crumbly. But I think that goes without saying.
One of the secrets to these cookies is white chocolate pudding. It keeps the cookies soft and adds to the white chocolate flavor. Also, these cookies don’t require chilling, which is a win when you’re in a hurry for white chocolate snickerdoodles, or any cookies for that matter.
I also have a sad announcement to make: I probably won’t be posting as many cookie recipes as I have been. The oven in my new house is tiny and I can only bake 6 cookies at a time :'( It takes me forever just to bake up one batch of cookies. So I’ve been leaning toward more cookie bar recipes in the future. I think this should just be extra motivation to save up for a kitchen renovation.

- Stir together the 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Form dough into 1 inch balls. and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges.
- Remove from the oven and let cool on the tray for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. If the cookies tend to spread to much, try chilling the dough for 1 hour and then baking.
