Sometimes things just come together.
Now is then. Or then is now.
Whatever, it’s happening.
Because honestly, that doesn’t always happen.
For example, there was this one time when I tried to make a cake into Yankee Stadium.
Seriously bad idea.
First off, I am no Ace of Cakes, and second, who knew that frosting weighs so much? I was never great at math.
It totally collapsed and I was forced to eat the scraps.
So yeah, when an idea hits and actually works it’s a minor miracle.
I had the idea for these White Chocolate filled Snickerdoodles when I made THESE a while back.
And I’m finally getting around to sharing with you.
They turned out good. Real good.
My first idea was to make them “deep dish”. I used my muffin top pan that has never once been used to make a muffin top.
I scooped a good sized 1/4 cup of snickerdoodle batter…
…and stuck 2 white chocolate candies inside.
I actually used some leftover white chocolate Easter Eggs, but you could use a white chocolate bar cut into chunks or individually wrapped white chocolates.
Don’t get hung up on the amount of white chocolate. The more the merrier.
Just take a tablespoon sized portion of dough and wrap it around 1 white chocolate piece.
Sometimes an idea just comes together.Print
makes approx 24 cookies or 12 deep dish cookies
- 1/2 cup shortening, I used butter flavored
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp sugar
- approx 24 white chocolate pieces (like these Hersheys Bliss)
- Beat the shortening, butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar together. Set aside.
- Mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt together. Then mix with the
- creamed sugar mixture until incorporated.
- Chill dough for at least 1 hour in refrigerator.
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Mix 2 Tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl
- Scoop a rounded tablespoon sized ball of dough and form it around 1 white chocolate piece. Roll the dough in the cinnamon sugar mix. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until edges slightly golden.
- Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet 3 minutes before transferring to wire rack to finish cooling.
Adaptation ~ If you make this recipe into deep dish cookies, use a heaping 1/4 cup of cookie dough and stuff it with 2 chocolates, increase baking time to 12-14 minutes until edges start to golden.
Remember to spray your muffin top pan with cooking spray for easy release.
