Cinnamon Chip Sugar Cookies

Earlier this week I promised cookies, so cookies I shall deliver.

Cinnamon Chip Sugar Cookies

You all know how I feel about cinnamon-sugar-anything.  Sweet cinnamon is one of my favorite flavors and I am almost sad to admit that sometimes I crave cinnamon chips.  In case you were wondering, they make a mighty fine post-dinner sweet treat!

Even if I have nothing in mind to do with them, cinnamon chips always end up in my grocery cart.  It’s seriously dangerous for me that they are available all year ’round!  So these cinnamon chip sugar cookies came out of a cinnamon chip craving a couple weeks ago – making cookies for no good reason can also be dangerous – but I couldn’t get the idea of a soft sugar-y cookie with cinnamon chips out of my mind!

These cookies could not be simpler either, and while they are probably better-suited for cold weather around the holidays, they were the perfect fix for my craving in the middle of summer!

Cinnamon Chip Sugar Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen

Total Time: 25 min

Simple, soft and chewy sugar cookies studded with sweet cinnamon chips.


2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup cinnamon chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment or Silpat liners. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light in color, fluffy and airy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until fully incorporated.

Slowly add the flour and mix just until combined, and until no white streaks remain. Stir in the cinnamon chips.

Place the dough, in 1-inch balls (I use a small cookie scoop), about 2-inches apart on the cookie sheets. Bake for 9-10 minutes until lightly browned on the edges but soft in the middle. Cook for a few minutes on the cookie sheet, and then cool completely on a wire rack.

Cassie's Notes:
Cinnamon chips can be found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips, etc. Some stores only stock them seasonally so if you can't find them, feel free to sub in chocolate, butterscotch or white chocolate chips, or any of your favorite cookie add-ins. Or you can order online.

    Girl TODAY I posted Homemade Cinnamon Chip Peanut Butter – what are the ODDS!! Your cookies look amazing and I have a few cookie recipes with cinn chips and cannot get enough of the flavor so decided to turn them into a PB flavoring. I want to take your cookies and my PB and make sandwich cookies 🙂 Thanks for the linky love!

    Amy @Very Culinary — July 11, 2013 @ 5:38 pm

    Haha. One of my blog “about me” items is “the amount of cinnamon should be doubled.” Truth! I make Snickerdoodles, with cinnamon chips. See? I would devour these.

    I’m with you – I am a big fan of anything cinnamon sugar. I usually keep a bag of chocolate chips in the fridge for a quick after dinner snack. Maybe I should start buying cinnamon chips?

    These cookies look so thick and gooey! Cinnamon is one of my favorite things in life, and I do love cinnamon chips. I love this idea…it must make the sugar cookie so snickerdoodley.

    I need this cookie in my life! It seems so nostalgic, even though I don’t remember eating anything like this growing up. Something about warm cinnamon just makes me want to cozy up and read a good book. A perfect afternoon treat.

    Oddly enough I don’t think I’ve ever had cinnamon chips. This must be fixed!

    I’ve never seen cinnamon chips before. I love everything with cinnamon on it. I have it every morning straight up on my Oatmeal. These cookies wouldn’t last very long in my house. Nice recipe!

    Cinnamon chips are one of the few types I rarely keep around the house. No idea why because they are definitely delicious! These cookies sound wonderful and they look perfectly soft.

    Where do you buy your cinnamon chips? I cannot find them!

    • Cassie replied: — August 5th, 2013 @ 2:21 pm

      I buy them at Walmart or my local grocery store, both of which carry them all year. Some stores only carry them around the holidays. If you look in the recipe notes above, you will see a link to where you can order them from Amazon if you can’t find them in your grocery stores. Hope this helps!

    Laura Dembowski — August 16, 2013 @ 12:26 pm

    I wanted to let you know I made these cookies and LOVED them! They are soooo yummy! I posted about them on my blog 🙂

    Teri — December 9, 2013 @ 12:10 pm

    Do you need to use bread flour, or will all purpose flour work?

    • Cassie replied: — December 9th, 2013 @ 12:32 pm

      You can use all-purpose. Just watch the consistency after you add the flour, you might have to add an extra tablespoon or two of all-purpose to make sure they don’t spread too much. Enjoy!

  64. #
    Teri — December 9, 2013 @ 12:48 pm

    Thank you-
    My cookies always seem to spread. Do you think Bread flour is better for all cookies?
