For traditional cinnamon version,

- eliminate cocoa

- use 2 3/4 c flour

Combine: 2 T sugar & 2 t cinnamon (or use pre-bought cinnamon sugar). Roll balls in cinnamon sugar.

Cook 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.


Fun variation: roll the chocolate ones in cinnamon sugar as well for a "mayan chocolate" cookie ;)

I'll include the variation of plain old snickerdoodles as well, since this is my oldest & most often-made snickerdoodle.

The chocolate snickerdoodles are a good basic chocolate cookie. Not too sweet or rich. Great for kids parties.

A dash of local for every season
