Toffee Chip Snickerdoodles

Good Evening!  My weekend is winding down and I'm mentally preparing for the week ahead but wanted to get this extra episode of Adventures In Baking posted.  Easter weekend I made a trip south to visit my family and splurged by trying out two new cookie recipes. This is the second cookie, Toffee Chip Snickerdoodles.....doesn't that sound good.  I found the recipe here at Recipe Girl. 

The ingredients.  Classic snickerdoodle recipe, so bring on the cream of tarter.    

Let's get started.  Sift together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt.  In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon. 

Next step.  Beat butter and sugar until blended.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat again.  Add flour and mix just until incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips and toffee pieces. 

Final step.  Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll it in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Place cookies 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.  Bake 16 minutes.

Taste test.  Very crispy.  They sure do spread out during baking.  They taste fine, but nothing like a snickerdoodle.  After baking the first batch for 16 minutes, I reduced the time to 14 minutes hoping for a little chewy with the crispy.  The recipe made 38 cookies, but by only baking them 6 at a time it took an hour and a half just to bake them!

On the next episode of Adventures In Baking ...... Brownies!

Till then
