When my kids want to take “a little something extra” to school with them they ask for these cookies. If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, please don’t let the name scare you! There’s just enough white chocolate in here to make the cookies extra special. Even my oldest son who isn’t a big fan of white chocolate loves these!
Naturally you can make these from scratch if you prefer; I often do when I’m making them on the weekend. But for a midweek treat, this recipe does just fine.
You can see inside the cookie there’s just enough white chocolate to give it a boost, but not too much too overpower the taste of the cookie.
These cookies are fabulous when you warm them up for just a few seconds in the microwave! The warm cinnamon flavor is so wonderful. Now all you need is a tall cold glass of milk!
White Chocolate Snickerdoodles
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs, brought too room temperature
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup white chocolate – you can use white chocolate chips. or any white chocolate candy and chopped it into desired size
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, or line two cookie sheets with silicone mates. Either one will work just fine.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs and oil together. Stir in white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate; roll into balls. In a small mixing bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar; roll balls in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 10 minutes or until middle is just barely set. Cool 5 minutes on sheets, then remove cookies with spatula to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 2 dozen.
Note: The nutmeg gives the cookie just a touch of something special that leaves people wondering what you added to make these cookies so good. The flavor is very subtle – give it a try!
