Fattening the Competition: SnickerChipDoodles

I love to bake, but can't be trusted with leftover cookies in the house. Those cookies soon transition from "leftovers" to "tummy fat," and I've been skating too much and too hard for that. My newest solution: Eat a few and take the rest to practice. Spread the calories around!

On Monday I made these cookies:

Here are some without chocolate chips.

I made them specially for Expletive Deleted, who doesn't like chocolate. She was so sweet as to bring me coffee and a brownie at work.

I also owed goodies to Edith MyFist of Edith MyRant.

These had chocolate chips. Yum!

How can anyone not love snickerdoodles? These are extra-stuffed with cinnamon and so soft and delicious. They'd be in contention for my new go-to snickerdoodle recipe except that Mr. CookingOnSkates likes this one better.

I only left the toffee chips out of the recipe because I didn't have any and refused to go to the store just for that.

These cookies were seriously so good that I cried when my kids found them and ate the last three of them. REAL TEARS. Thanks again!

If Kelly were a character in a fantasy novel, she would not have a magic, glowing, talking sword.* She would wield cookies. FEAR THE POWER OF THE COOKIES!

Is it just me or does that first bag of cookies say "BOOBS" on it? Just observin'.

*Though I might.

DeVeeM, the bag definitely does say BOOBS. Those were for Expletive Deleted, #80085, aka "Boobs."
