  • 120 cookies!

    I've been able to lose about 25 pounds over the passed few months but I swear that just reading this has put some pounds back on.

    I thought cinnamon comes from bark of a tree. How do they make cinnamon chips?

  • They sprinkle some of that ground bark in a white chocolate and mold them I reckon..lol

    It's strictly against southern code to diet at Christmas time...you'll have to wait until the 1st to get back on it or risk a total meltdown..ha!

    I've finally decided I'll be on a strict one come the 1st.

  • CG,

    I have been making Snickerdoodles from The Early American Cookbook for the last almost forty years.... This is the first time I have heard about the C Chips........Is that your own ?

    Your recipe looks great.......... Definitely worth a bake-off.....

    It would be fun to have a Snickerdoodle comparison.......

    Have a Great Holiday.......

  • Yes, the cinnamon chips I add became available about 15 years ago while I was in South Florida...I found them while shopping to cater for the holidays and thought they would be a perfect addition to replace the large amount of cinnamon I had been using in the recipe.

    Once I tried them I had a "Bingo" of a moment. As you may know, too much of the spice can make a recipe spicy hot tasting. I still add a little though and prefer Saigon cinnamon which is easily found, Costco has an industrial size if you use it a lot, it's a must for my oatmeal.

    These cookies are not a soft batch style cookie which makes me like them even more for the light crunch...and they last forever...as far as a comparison...you're on!

    And have the most wonderful Merry Christmas ever...you will find me hanging out under the mistletoe somewhere no doubt.

  • Saw the Cinnamon Chips before Christmas at Kroger but yesterday when I went shopping they were all gone........

    I will be patient until next Holiday season........

    Did find the plant food at Lowe's though...........And they have lowered the price..........
