Soft and chewy snickerdoodles with chocolate chips

Are you a white chocolate chip person? Or do you prefer semisweet, milk, or dark chocolate chips in your cookies?

My husband is a white chocolate chip person and these white chocolate snickerdoodles happen to be his all-time favorite cookies!

White Chocolate Snickerdoodles

He doesn’t love 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 in these snickerdoodles is just right for him.

One of the secrets to these cookies is white chocolate pudding. It keeps the cookies soft and adds to the white chocolate flavor.

Another perk to these cookies is that they don’t require chilling, which is a win when you’re in a hurry for white chocolate snickerdoodles, or any cookies for that matter.

  2. Stir together the ⅓ 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.
  3. 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.

    In your ingredient list, you have 1/3 cup sugar listed for the cinnamon/sugar mixture, but in the instructions you say to stir together 1/2 cup sugar & the cinnamon – which is the correct amount of sugar to use? Thank you!
