I just can’t help myself. I find a new chocolate chip cookie recipe and I just have to try. Could it possibly be better than my favorite chocolate chip cookie?
I was browsing through a fun cookbook the other day and found a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that used cinnamon. I was intrigued and decided I must try it. Truth be told I am not a big fan of spice flavored cookies but the addition of cinnamon into a chocolate chip cookie really works. I was a little worried about it so I only added the cinnamon to half of the dough. Didn’t want to totally ruin a perfectly good batch of cookie dough. I figured if I didn’t like the cinnamon I still had half a batch of cookie dough!
Well, it worked! The addition of the cinnamon to the cookie was delicious! Texture is just as important to me in a chocolate chip cookie as flavor is and I loved the texture of this cookie.
It is a flatter cookie with nice crisp edges but with a chewy center.
The cookie was quite lovely dunked in a cold glass of milk or just by itself. It was a nice change from an ordinary chocolate chip cookie. Spice it up the next time you make cookies and try these Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies.
