Cookie Carnival -- Sassy Cinnamon Cookies

I picked the Sassy Cinnamon Cookies for November's Cookie Carnival. It is a receipe from Betty Crocker and it got rave reviews from everyone that tried them. I have had sevreal request to make these again.

They are very similar to a snickerdoodle cookie, which anyone that knows me, knows that I love a good snickerdoodle.

These are perfect for the fall, for cookie trays for the holidays or even a cookie exchange.

Sassy Cinnamon Cookies

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cinnamon-flavored baking chips
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1.Heat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick pan, heat oven to 350°F). In large bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until creamy. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir in cinnamon chips and pecans.

2.In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Shape dough by 1/4 cupfuls into balls. Roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place balls 3 inches apart on ungreased large cookie sheet (do not flatten). **I made much smaller cookies than the 1/4 cup**

3.Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until set and light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Enjoy with a large glass of milk!


  1. I am hosting a cookie swap in a few weeks. I think these may be what I make. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Glad you got rave reviews! I got pretty similar results with an empty container returned from work =)
