Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Making homemade cookies is the best! I love cinnamon, so I added some to my usual chocolate chip recipe. This recipe makes about 20 cookies.


  • 1.5 cups of flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups of semisweet (or bittersweet) chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup of melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon


  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • cup measures
  • electric beater
  • spatula
  • cookie sheet
  • cooling rack for the cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Hand stir the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar in a bowl. Then let sit for 5 minutes, until the sugar is absorbed by the butter. This produces flatter cookies that have a shiny top and are crispy at the edges.
  3. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the bowl. Beat.
    • Don’t worry if you overbeat the eggs. Your cookies will still turn out fine! You only worry about overbeating them when you’re making something like meringue or angel food cake.
  4. Separately mix the flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.
  5. Add the flour mix at 1/2 a cup at a time, beating as you go.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips
  7. Scoop the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet 1 tbsp at a time.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool for ~5 minutes before you transfer them to the cooling rack.
