Snickery-Doodles (no, it's not vegan!)
(from Sallys Baking Addiction )
I don't know if it's a good idea to mess with a classic recipe....so I keep eating these and trying to decide!
First chop up 4 regular Snickers bars (or 10 fun size). I cut them down the middle, then chopped about 1/3 inch slices across...put these in the freezer while you make the cookie dough. (if cooked while room temp they will ooze all over the cookie sheet!)
1 C butter (it called for unsalted, but I used regular), room temp
1 1/3 C white sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 t vanilla
Stir together and add:
3 C flour
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon(this is a departure from the traditional recipe)
1/2 t salt
Additional sugar and cinnamon for rolling.
Then dump in your chilled Snickers; form into balls...I smoothed them so the candy chunks weren't sticking out of the dough which helped to keep all their deliciousness inside the cookie. Roll in sugar/ cinnamon mix and bake on Silpat or foil covered baking sheet...Don't over bake! I did mine for 10 minutes...they might have been better at 9....if you remove them to a wire rack to cool it might keep them from overbaking.
