White Chocolate Snickerdoodles

White Chocolate Snickerdoodles - adding white chips make this already delicious cookie even better!! We love them!

I know National Chocolate Chip Day was on Tuesday, but I’m finishing out the rest of this week with YUMMY Chocolate Chip Recipes!!!

A month or so ago I saw one via Pinterest that I knew I had to try. I clicked over to the site it came from and was so happy to see that it came from my good friend, Mique’s, site – Thirty Handmade Days!! Can I just gush real quick about Mique and her awesome-ness? The girls is so uber-talented and also is the woman behind the Queen Bee Market. For those that were at SNAP, you know how awesome that was!! Any who, I just think the world of this girl and was so inspired when she put two of her favorite cookies together to make White Chocolate Snickerdoodles, because those happen to be two of MY favorite cookies as well!!

The end result – PURE HEAVEN!!

Thanks for the inspiration, Mique!!

    1. Neither had I!! Such a great idea and such a great recipe! You must give it a try. Have a great weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I would credit Mique for the idea – I had never though of it before, but so glad I tried it. They were delish!! Let me know if you give them a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. i make white chocolate craberry snickerdoodles… sounds like a lot, but they are SO freaking good…. try it next time you make these, add some dried cranberries. i promise it will be worth your while!

    1. Is the recipe similar?? And you just add the dried cranberries? Sounds easy enough and super delish!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Yep, just add them in like you add the chocolate chips. I made them for my dad for Christmas, they were really tasty!

  2. These look absolutely YUMMY! I have been hanging around your blog for some time now and just may as well admit it!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOVE your blog and projects!!

    1. Ah, thanks Sara!! So glad you like the projects! That makes me so happy! I hope you can keep coming back. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I made these today and they are absolutely delicious! Mine turned out pretty flat and crunchy rather than thicker and chewy. I used almost an entire bag of white chips so I had about 8 dozen cookies rather than 4 dozen, which is fine but I also wondered if maybe I did something wrong with the recipe. I will certainly make them again, though.

  4. I form my Snickerdoodle Cookies around a pecan half, raisens or milk chocolate chips, a habit from when my son was little. He tells me it is one of his fondest memories from childhood.and it is how he makes them still. We called them “Surprise Snickerdoodles”, because we didn’t know until we bit into them what was inside. I can hardly wait to tell my son about this recipe.

  5. Found half a bag of white chocolate chips in the cupboard and went searching for what to make with them……found this recipe and loved them!! they were so easy and perfect for dessert after a nice meal!!! Thanks a bunch!!

  6. Yummo!! I have never made snickerdoodles, but these are going to be a staple for me now!!! They are soft on the inside and a little crunchy on the outside and not too sweet. My batch only made about 2 1/2 dozen. I also needed to use another tbsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to roll the cookies in. I think I might have made them bigger. I used a half bag of the white chocolate chips, but I think next time I will use a little bit more. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!! They are super delicious!!

  7. Made these for my college age son & 3 buddies. They quickly deemed them “Crack Cookies”. I think they really liked them considering the number that disappeared. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. 5 stars
    I just finished this recipe for a little lunch time dessert. I will choose a cinnamon dessert over anything; even chocolate! They turned out amazing! I was able to get 3 1/2 dozen out of the dough. My family and I scarfed about a third of them down immediately. I have now eaten so many I’m nearly sick to my stomach. Great recipe!!!

  9. How many servings/cookies does your snickerdoodle white chocolate chip cookie recipe make? How big of a bag of white chocolate chips do you buy and what brand?

    1. I usually have a big bag of white chocolate chips, since I use them a lot!! But, just for this recipe, the regular size bag will be just fine! Depending on how big your scoops are, you could get between 2-3 dozens. I like nestle brand, but use pretty much all brands:)
