Christmas Cookies: Easy Snickerdoodle Toffee Chip Cookies
One of my favorite cookies at Christmas time is the snickerdoodle. The combination of a traditional sugar cookie and cinnamon make me feel like the holidays have officially begun. Don't get me wrong, I love decorating gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but when it comes to eating Christmas cookies, pass the snickerdoodles! This year I wanted to switch up the flavor (and perk up store-bought snickerdoodle cookie mix), so I added toffee chips. The result was nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Whether you want a delicious new cookie to give as easy Christmas gifts, or if you simply want to add a new flavor to your Christmas cookies this year, try my semi-homemade Snickerdoodle Toffee Chip cookies.
- 1 package snickerdoodle cookie mix
- 1 C toffee bits
- cinnamon sugar for coating cookies
Mix the snickerdoodle cookie dough according to the directions on the package (or make sugar cookie dough from scratch) then stir in 1 cup toffee bits. Roll the dough into uniform 1&1/2" balls and roll in cinnamon sugar (if making from scratch, use ratio of 1/2 sugar: 1/2 ground cinnamon). Place dough balls on cookie sheet a few inches apart and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a rack before packaging.
