White Chocolate Snickerdoodles are a fun flavor variation on the classic Snickerdoodle cookie. The addition of white chocolate gives you some extra sweetness in every bite.(Jump to Recipe)
Do you have your favorite cookie recipes you make over and over again? Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodles are the two at our house. They are the ones I make when I’ve got a craving for a cookie but I don’t want to have to think and I know I’ll have all the ingredients.
To avoid being too boring, I try to change it up a bit once in a while. I will add something into the cookie that isn’t normally in the recipe. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. So when I got a craving for Snickerdoodles this last week I opened up my baking cupboard to see what I could add in and I found a bag of white chocolate chips. Yes, I think everything tastes better with white chocolate. I love white chocolate chips in my chocolate chip cookies so why not?
Guess what? Snickerdoodles taste better with white chocolate! I loved biting into them and finding that little surprise of white chocolate.
Other things I have found that work well are semi sweet or milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toffee chips and I often exchange the vanilla extract for almond extract – so good!! Go a little crazy!
