Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies are full of hearty, robust cinnamon flavor, thanks to cinnamon in the dough and the cinnamon chips. They’re ridiculously soft, tender, and pillowy. There’s no traces of cakiness or dryness, and are chewy and moist. They’re without a doubt the best Snickerdoodles I’ve ever had and are my new favorite go-to recipe.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

I’m a huge cinnamon fiend. The more the merrier.

And I love snickerdoodles. Two favorites united, at long last, in one super soft cookie.

I have a recipe for White Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies and Sugar-Doodle Vanilla Cookies, bringing white chocolate and lots of vanilla to the party.

And there’s Chewy Sugar Sprinkles Cookies and Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars with Pink Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting, because you can’t go wrong with either sprinkles or frosting.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

But it was high time I worked extra cinnamon in. All snickerdoodles have some, these just have much more. Thanks to a hefty dose of cinnamon in the dough and a bag of cinnamon chips, they’re warmly and richly spiced. I almost rolled the dough balls in cinnamon-sugar, but decided to cool it.

The cookies are right up my alley because I love the whole Brown Sugar Maple, Softbatch-Style Dark Brown Sugar Molasses and Ginger family of cookies, and these are a wonderful new addition.

They’re without a doubt, the best snickerdoodles I’ve ever had. Even without the cinnamon chips added, this dough base is a keeper. They just sweeten the deal.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

I looked for over a year for cinnamon chips, and even in the fall and before Christmas and holiday baking, they were no where to be found in sunny San Diego.

I randomly went into Albertson’s grocery store (Kroger), and they had a full line of Hershey’s products, including cinnamon chips and Special Dark Cocoa Powder, another product that’s very tricky for me to find. Or just order cinnamon chips online; the price is right. I should have just done that a year ago.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

For the cookies, I used butter and sugar ratios similar to the Sugar-Doodles. That recipe also calls for a splash of cream in the dough, which adds tenderness, richness, and moisture.

I took it a step further and rather than cream, I use a tablespoon of thick Greek yogurt, which complements the tang factor the cream of tartar provides in snickerdoodles.

I also added cornstarch, my favorite ingredient for creating softbatch-style cookies, which turn out similar to pudding cookies.

These cookies turned out ridiculously soft, tender, and pillowy. There’s no dryness, cakiness, or crumbliness, problems that tend to plague sugar and snickerdoodle cookies.

The dough is buttery and moist, and because I used mostly brown sugar, they get softer on the second day, and continue to stay soft for a week. Not that these last a week in my presence.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

As with all my cookie recipes, this dough can and must be chilled for at least two hours prior to baking, or up to five days. My suggestion is to just bake what you’re going to eat that day, rather than making the whole batch at once, and keep the rest of the dough chilling until you need it.

The cinnamon flavor is abundant and robust, thanks to the cinnamon chips, which are slightly smaller than semi-sweet chocolate chips. Their slightly smaller size makes for a wonderful dough-to-chip ratio and the cookies are plentifully stuffed with oozy, soft, melty cinnamon chips.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

Research has shown that cinnamon has numerous health benefits. So I’m just doing my part to stay healthy. That’s what I tell myself after I snag 3 directly off the baking tray and inhale them in 3 minutes.

They’re totally my new favorite snickerdoodles.

Soft and Chewy Cinnamon Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

The cookies are full of hearty, robust cinnamon flavor, thanks to cinnamon in the dough and the cinnamon chips. They’re ridiculously soft, tender, and pillowy. There’s no traces of cakiness or dryness, and are chewy and moist. They’re without a doubt the best Snickerdoodles I’ve ever had and are my new favorite go-to recipe.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • one 10-ounce bag (about 1 2/3 cups) cinnamon chips


  1. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the egg, butter, sugars, and beat on medium-high speed until well-creamed, light and fluffy, about 5 minutes (or use a hand mixer and beat for at least 7 minutes).
  2. Add the Greek yogurt, vanilla, and beat to incorporate until fluffy again, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, cinnamon, cornstarch, cream of tartar, baking soda, optional salt, and beat until just incorporated, about 2 minutes. Don’t overmix.
  4. Add the cinnamon chips and either fold in by hand or beat momentarily to combine.
  5. Using a medium 2-inch cookie scoop, form mounds (I made 23). Place mounds on a large plate, flatten mounds slightly, cover with plasticwrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 5 days, before baking. Do not bake with warm dough because cookies will spread and bake thinner and flatter.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat, parchment, or spray with cooking spray. Place mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart (I bake 8 cookies per sheet). Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just beginning to set, even if slightly undercooked, pale and glossy in the center. Do not bake longer than 10 minutes as cookies will firm up as they cool (The cookies shown in the photos were baked with dough that had been chilled overnight, allowed to come to room temp for 15 minutes, and were baked for 8 minutes, with trays rotated at the 4-minute mark. They have chewy edges with soft, pillowy centers). Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing and transferring to a rack to finish cooling.
  7. Store cookies airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored airtight in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.

  1. Made double batch and they were amazing. I didn’t have any greek yogurt so had to use the sour cream option. Our new all time favorite cinnamon cookie. Thank you!!

    Rating: 5
  2. These turned really good. I made these and then put in the fridge overnight. As they came out of the oven I ended up topping with extra cinnamon morsels that had reserved from the cup.

  3. The recipe looks great. I will have to try them but Albertsons is not a Kroger store. Albertsons owns Safeway. Kroger owns Free Meyer.

    1. I bake a lot, but out of everything I’ve made, my husband loved these most of all. Thank you for the recipe!

      1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad your husband is a big fan of these cookies!

  4. Maybe I’m just blind and missing it…but when do you roll the cookies in the optional cinnamon-sugar mix? Before or after baking? Thank you!

  5. These are amazing! I made them today after finding cinnamon chips at the small produce store down the street from me. I’ve seen them but didn’t know what to do with them. They also had toffee chips so I did half and half plus a little white chocolate. Snickerdoodles are my favorite and this just kicked it up 10 notches! ❤️

    1. Wow your cookies sound amazing with the cinnamon/toffee/white chocolate chips! I wish I was having one too :)

  6. Just wanted to thank you for sharing this delicious and easy to make recipe. I like the fact that this is a sugar cookie with a twist. The cinnamon is in the cookie batter. I didn’t even roll it in cinnamon sugar because I thought it had enough cinnamon. The only 2 things I did differently was that I didn’t put the cookie batter in the fridge for 2 hours, I baked them soon after the batter was mixed and only used 1/2 bag of cinnamon chips per batch. They baked beautifully . . . .. just a perfect soft cookie.

  7. I just made these and my family is going berserk over them.  They taste absolutely fabulous!  So full of cinnamon they are just a tiny bit spicy, a lot like those cinnamon candies you find on Christmas cookies.  I will definitely be making these again!  Thank you for the amazing recipe.

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe and I’m glad it came out great for you and that your family is going nuts over them :)

  8. WOW!! Just made the Soft & Chewy Cinnamon chip snicker doodles! I just fell in love! I followed the recipe and they are completely awesome! I made one batch as is, (not rolled in cinnamon & sugar) and the remaining batching rolled in c&s. I loved the extra crunch the sugar provides. If you have any doubts about trying a cinnamon cookie, give this recipe a try and you will be hooked for life!!! Thank you Averie for sharing! I will be adding this to my keeper cookie recipes!!

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe and I’m glad it came out great for you and that it’s a keeper for you!

  9. You should check out They have amazing cinnamon chips and other tasty items. My husband buys me alot of yummy stuff from there for Christmas.

  10. I have to thank you for this recipe. I make these all the time, for my family, friends, coworkers etc.. I just have one question for you. You say you can freeze the cookies after they have been made, which in my house never happens. But have you ever frozen the cookie dough? I like to do my baking on my days off, and the process for this is a little time consuming (though well worth it) and I would like to make multiple batches at a time if possible. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

    1. Yes I freeze 100% of ALL my cookie dough! I bake 6 to 8 cookies at a time, max, the rest gets frozen in ziplocks, labeled, and saved for a rainy day. When I’m ready to bake them, I put the frozen rocks on baking sheets, preheat the oven, and then bake them. Dont need to wait til they thaw; just bake maybe 1-2 mins (max) additional. I tell people that you can freeze dough up to 4 mos. In reality for me personally, I have frozen some dough for up to 15 months. No problems :)

  11. My family LOVES Snickerdoodles and LOVES cinnamon anything…In Europe “specialty” chips are extremely difficult to obtain…Do you think I could possibly find a good quality white chocolate (such as Lindt)…melt it…put in a certain quantity of cinnamon and light brown sugar or Lyle’s Golden Syrup get a similar product upon cooling to “chop” up into chips?!…If so…any thoughts on quantities?…Perfectly plated, photographed cookie by the way!!

  12. Hi Averie! Making these today. I was at Central Market in Dallas and found Hershey cinnamon chips on the shelf right there! No prob! Yay! I’ll LYK how they turn out later. So excited! Snickerdoodles are a favorite of mine. I just bought Dr Lucy’s cinnamon crisps, and they didn’t last a day here.

      1. They are incredible! These are the BEST cookies ever! I followed recipe exactly as is except did not roll in cinnamon sugar. Felt they were sweet enough. Those cinnamon chips are super sweet. YUMMY!

        Very soft and just perfect. I used Greek yogurt.

      2. Hi Shannon thanks for making these and for telling me what you did and didn’t do – I agreed with you about the cinn-sugar. I have a few other recipes that I roll in cinn-sugar so for these, just kept it off. I am so happy you love your soft, best cookies ever – thank you! :)

  13. Oh man. I just followed the link from your Cinnamon Chip Peanut Butter and now I’m craving these snickerdoodles. I’ve never eaten cinnamon chips; I doubt that we’d be able to buy them in-store in Australia (you can’t even get butterscotch chips here) so I might check out the online link. Gorgeous post! Delectable cookies. Thanks Averie xx

    1. You can’t even get butterscotch chips? Oh darn, that’s no fun! Well, you will love the cinn chips if you ever try them – you could always use white chocolate + a ridiculous amount of cinnamon (and maybe some brown sugar to make up for the sweetness they add, if desired) if you want to wing it without them.

  14. My heart just skipped a beat. I absolutely love love love cinnamon. These look perfect!

  15. Averie, this is the fourth amazing snickerdoodle cookie I’ve seen online in the past week. I developed a raging need to eat them so I made Sally’s version last night. Yum! One down, three more to go, especially your cookie packed with those delicious cinnamon chips! I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen them in the store. I’ll just have to order myself a box online so that I’m always stocked with them. I love cinnamon – the more the better!

    1. I know, Sally and I had posts go live within 12 hrs of each other, both snickerdoodles. And another friend make some no-bake s’doodle truffles. Something was in the air! Well, if you try my version, I’d love to hear what you think! :)

  16. I love anything cinnamon–the more, the better! But I’ve yet to buy cinnamon chips. I really need to look for them.

  17. I like cinnamon as well, especially when it’s a lot of cinnamon in cookies.

  18. Oh my goodness, I feel like this recipe was sent to me from the heavens! I have a bag of cinnamon chips I just recently acquired from a friend (they do not sell them here in Okinawa) and I have been waiting for the perfect recipe. I am sooooo excited to try these this weekend when we are having friends for dinner. YAY!

  19. I love that these are your favorite snickerdoodles! And you have so many, so that’s saying a lot. Like you, I LOVE cinnamon. I honestly didn’t know there was such a thing as cinnamon chips! Where in the world have I been? I think these would be a fantastic Christmas cookie to bring to a potluck or Christmas gathering. So festive and warm and cozy! Deliciousness! :-)

    1. They totally would be great for pre-xmas baking and holiday baking and that’s when most stores carry cinn chips. Lots of places don’t carry them year-round (or at all). Wish I would have just ordered them a year++ ago rather than waiting for random luck to turn!

  20. Loving the intensity of these cookies! The cinnamon…I always have to have a bag of the chips in my pantry. I love how my store carries them all year now!

  21. These look insane. I love snicker doodles like I love my kids. The addition of cinnamon chips and greek yogurt is a great idea- pinned and can’t wait to make!

    1. Thanks for the pin and yes, the cinn chips and greek yog boost the flavor and moistness and softness!

  22. I love snickerdoodles and cinnamon and cinnamon chips. In fact when I made snickerdoodles awhile ago I used cinnamon chips. I order everything I can’t find in stores online. The UPS guy and I are practically bffs!

    1. Most days I have the UPS guy once or twice (ground and overnight are 2 separate deliveries) and Fedex. And the mail. It’s nuts!

  23. I have a bag of cinnamon chips in my pantry and I’m dying to use them. These cookies are fabulous! I love the GY or sour cream addition!

  24. Averie these are so innovative! As soon as the heat sets in chocolate chips don’t sound good to me; cinnamon chips are brilliant!

    1. Ahh, I wish that happened to me with chocolate. It knows no seasons for me! And glad you like the cinn chip idea!

  25. You know I love cinnamon, cinnamon chips…all things cinnamon! These are perfect, friend! And i LOVE the new design!!

    1. Thanks for saying hi – was wondering how you were doing! I loved those cinn rolls of yours today! And thanks for the compliments on the new site!

  26. You & Sally both posting snickerdoodle recipes today – love it! And now I know the cookie you mentioned to me last week that used a bit of greek yogurt. The idea of adding extra tang with it – great idea. Separately, my mom and I have a theory that cinnamon chips make anything taste better. They’re so magical!

  27. I am guessing the use of greek yogurt made these extra rich and fluffy! These cookies look incredible, and I love the use of cinnamon chips.

    1. Extra rich and so moist, for sure! (p.s. you went into my spam but are out now – in case you’re wondering why your comment didn’t appear right away!) :)

  28. These look like my kind of cookies! I love the soft kinds that are still all nice and melty in the middle :) I haven’t used cinnamon chips for a long time, which is a shame because they are so tasty! This needs to be remedied…

  29. You’ve done a world of wonder here, Averie! How long did it take you to come up with this one? Bookmarked and duly noted for my next cookie exchange–I love cinnamon!

    1. I had tinkered with my previous snickerdoodle recipe a few times in the past couple years and make hybrids and finally got this one right and exactly the way I want the dough base!

  30. Oh yes I love the Greek yogurt in the dough! I love adding it to my cookies! And those cinnamon chips really are tricky to find! I was adding them to banana bread a few years ago and loved it…then they were gone. Every time I see them I have to grab a bag (because it’s so rare).
    Can’t wait to make these for my younger brother. I send him cookie care packages now that he’s in college, and Snickerdoodles are his favorite :)

  31. I have never tried those cinnamon chips, but those cookies look great, I’ll have to pick some up!

  32. I’ll have to keep my eye out for cinnamon chips; I haven’t seen them at my grocery store but I’m very curious about them! These cookies look like the perfect texture and it’s nice to see a snickerdoodle recipe that uses brown sugar. I’m probably crazy enough to roll them in cinnamon sugar! I think there’s a cinnamon fever going around because I just posted cinnamon truffles lol!

  33. I have a hard time finding cinnamon chips as well! But once I do find them, I making these cookies. Double dose of cinnamon sounds like heaven to me.

  34. I was just looking at Sally’s version of snickerdoodles! I love them. And I love the new logo!

  35. I cannot recall the last time I made snickerdoodles, and these are so over the top I need to fix that!

  36. Cinnamon chips!!! They are probably my favorite chip, or it might be a tie with butterscotch chips, but there is no better addition to a snickerdoodle than these babies! Everything about this recipe looks perrrrfect!

  37. Cinnamon chips are one of those things I love but don’t use enough of! These sound great – snickerdoodles are one of my absolute favorite cookies!

  38. I have one bag of cinnamon chips that I have been hoarding!!! I need to find a store that carries them year round!!! Those cookies are so crazy good looking! I love cinnamon and snickerdoodles.

    1. I am hoarding them now, too, but in the future, I’m just going to order them. Can’t be without these little things I don’t think :)

  39. So funny, I was looking through all your cinnamon recipes last night because I had a craving for *something* delicious and cinnamon-y. Pinning this now, those cookies look soooo good :)

  40. Normally I wouldn’t want any chips or chunks in a snickerdoodle – but these cookies look too good to resist! Thanks for the cinnamon chips link! My grocery store only seems to carry them once in a blue moon. :P

  41. The more cinnamon in my snickerdoodles, the bettah! These look sensational, Averie. Totally my favorite cookie ever, made even better!

  42. Everything about this is so well thought out! From the cinnamon chips to the greek yogurt to the cornstarch – so many components for the perfect Snickerdoodle. I’ve yet to cheat on our recipe, but with all these twists, I can’t resist trying them! Thank you Averie!

    1. If you cheat on it, LMK! I thought about these for ages and made sure to get them just right!

  43. Wow, cinnamon chips! That is so cool, I’ve never heard of those. I love that you found a way to amp up the cinnamon factor even more. We totally need it for our health. ;)

  44. Those cookies look so good! If only they sold those cinnamon chips here in Canada.

  45. Well, now I have no choice but make snickerdoodles. I just saw Sally’s post and now yours. You guys are trying to tell me something :) PS: gotta find the cinnamon chips! Pinning!

    1. I know, it’s crazy how OFTEN we post the same things, i.e. yeast bread, strawberry posts, snickerdoodles, just to name a few in the past week that we’ve done on the same day!

  46. Cinnamon chips are hard to find around here too. Next time I see them, I will need to grab a few bags and make these. They look wonderful, Averie!

  47. Beautiful! I found cinnamon chips last fall a target and I live in the mountains of CO. I can’t believe you can not find them in sunny CA!! Which by the way I wish so badly I lived in CA!! Oh my gosh it will not get warm here and it will not stop snowing. Send help! Ha

    Ok anyway, these cookies look perfect. I mean wow. They really look perfectly baked and everything! I wish I had one for breakfast!

    1. And people always think of SoCal as really warm but I live near the ocean and it’s usually AT MOST 78F in the dead of summer. It’s usually warmer in Sept/Oct than it is in the ‘summer’. We almost never run our A/C b/c it’s not hot here! I hope your snow stops soon!

  48. I’m a huge cinnamon fan too! I always put it in my breakfast smoothies, oatmeal, etc. It’s the best! These cookies sound perfect for me! Great recipe!

  49. Wow, girl! LOVE that you used Greek yogurt in your cookie dough for that special tang. And, why not gild the proverbial lily with extra cinnamon in the form of chips in Snickerdoodles? They were made for each other. Way to go! Pinning… xo

    1. Thanks for the pin! And for the expression gilding the lily. Haven’t heard that one in ages :)

  50. I am so in love with cinnamon chips, it’s not even funny. They are my FAV! The grocery store near me had them on super sale (like $1.50 a bag or something crazy) and I bought about a dozen bags. Oops. I love the look of these cookies, Averie – they’re beautiful!

    1. Right after I FINALLY found the cinn chips, the store had a sale for about the same price. So I stocked up. I have like 10 bags on hand right now. I think you will LOVE these cookies!

  51. Averie, I love that you used cinnamon chips! I have a hard time finding them, but when I do I stock up. I just so happen to have several bags on hand!I need to give this a try, thanks! And of course, love that me, you and Sally were all on the snickerdoodle wavelength today :)

    1. When I saw your post first on Sun p.m., and THEN Sally’s, and I knew I was posting about snickerdoodles, I thought that even if we TRIED we couldn’t have done that – all 3 on the same day. She and I have also posted yeast bread on the same day 2 weeks in a row, as well as a strawberry post on the same day last week. Crazy! And I totally want to make your little dough bites. Love no-bake recipes like that!

      1. It’s so funny how that happens! Oftentimes I see someone post a recipe that I know I have waiting in the wings (not necessarily on the same day)! Funny that you and Sally are so connected like that too :)

  52. I hear ya about working extra cinnamon into the dough, Averie! I made my snickerdoodles with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon in the dough and 1 teaspoon for rolling. I cut it down to 2.5 for the website because I feared others would think it’s too much. Too much cinnamon! Ha…. impossible. :) Your snickerdoodles look so soft and chewy! And I have to tell ya – I’ve never, not once, ever baked with cinnamon chips before! I see them all the time at the grocery store but never pick up a bag. I’m tempted to put them into snickerdoodle blondies! Or on top of vanilla ice cream with some caramel sauce. Mmmm… I have to go snag some!

    1. Sally it was not until recently that I’ve baked with cinn chips either b/c I couldn’t FIND them! You would love them! They are not wimpy in the cinn dept. They are quite robust, more than I would have guessed. Perfect for fiends like us :)

      And yeah, I slightly under-reported how much cinnamon I actually used. And had it been just for me, would have rolled them in cinn-sugar, but didn’t want to hear comments about all someone could taste was cinn and it was over-powering. lol

      Cinn chips/blondies…yeah, that post is ready to go out in a week or so :) You’re a mind reader!

  53. I would splurge and use my Vietnamese cinnamon in these–they look wonderful with all those little chips! As a general rule, my sister is not into baking, but snickerdoodles were about the only kind of cookie she ever made. I’ll have to pass this on to her. Glad you could find some special dark cocoa–I love that stuff!

    1. They are totally!! worth the Viet cinn splurge! Yes, indeed! If there was ever a recipe, this would be the one b/c unlike even bread since there is so much flour/dough, there is nothing to ‘dilute’ the flavor here. Cinnamon, full-on! And glad your sister would approve :)

  54. These look amazing Averie! Snickerdoodle cookies are my favorite! Love the idea of the cinnamon chips in these :)

  55. Ooooh just look at that gorgeous studded cinnamon chips! I usually can’t find cinnamon chips at the grocery store so I buy a case of them on Amazon. But I recently found some bags in the bottom of my drawer and unfortunately, they were EXPIRED! Ugh. Anyway, time to restock so I can make these!

    1. Expired? I would use them anyway unless they were like green or fuzzy. Lol

      Check your local Alberton’s. I have found them there, whereas Vons and Ralph’s, no luck. Target, no luck either.

      1. Oooh will definitely have to try Albertson’s. Although I think they were all bought out by Lucky’s. Oh well, it’s worth a shot!
