Chocolate Snicker-doodles

We always save our Snicker-doodle recipe for Christmas.  I don't have a reason that we only pull it out during the Holidays, but we do.  I was thinking about cookies the other day, and remembered Snicker-doodles.  I was thinking about chocolate as well.  So, what better?  Combine Snicker-doodles with chocolate!  I was thinking I must be a genius.

So, here goes nothing:

Chocolate Snicker-Doodles


1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar for later


Beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in a large bowl.  Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt
Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Mix 1/4 sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.  Roll balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  
Bake 8-10 minutes @ 400˚ or until set.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. 

It wasn't until the first batch was in the oven, that I remembered I forgot all about the baking soda....

  Not good...so back to the proverbial drawing board. 

So, after another round of ingredients, we got chocolate snicker-doodles:

The jury is actually still out on these. Kolby liked them, Riley spit his out... I ate mine, but  I think it's best not to tamper with an already perfect cookie. I hope if you try them, you will link up, and let me know how you liked them.
