November Cookie Carnival Round Up

Welcome to the Round Up for November! 

I was surprised to see that everyone chose to bake the Betty Crocker Sassy Cinnamon Cookies.

Like me, others had trouble actually finding cinnamon chips. There were none to be found around my area. For those of you who have them in your stores, they are priceless little chips. hahaha!!

Here's what our bakers had to say this month: 

Vivian from Let's Try These had some camera problems this month. About the cookies she said "Made the cinnamon cookies but was unable to find the cinnamon chips any where. I ended up using toffee bits as a substitute and while it was a good cookie, it reminded me of snickerdoodles."

Katrina from Baking and Boys said "These cookies are snickerdoodles on steroids. They are a thick cookie with that familiar snickerdoodle taste with pecans and cinnamon chips added for extra flavor and crunch."

Kerri from Kerri's Texas Kitchen said "I loved the sassy cinnamon cookies and so did everyone that I shared them with!"

Cristine from Cooking with Cristine said "I haven't seen the cinnamon chips in stock here in El Paso but had a nice stash in the freezer from Arizona." - Lucky you! I searched everywhere around me here in NC and couldn't find them. I had no problems finding them when I lived in Pa.

Krista from Meet the Swans said "I subbed butterscotch chips for the cinnamon chips and walnuts for the pecans in my cookies".

Tessa from The Cookin' Chemist said "I made these cookies to take to work to share."

Shonda from The Knowlton Nest said "This cookie reminded me of a Snickerdoodle with chocolate chips and nuts inside."

Here is Chaya's Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies from Oct's roundup

Chaya from My Sweet and Savory said " This is one of the cookies that I sent to the soldiers"  - What a wonderful thing for you to do, Chaya!!

Thank you for another wonderful round up, ladies!

So that all of us can spend more time with our families during the holidays, we won't have a Cookie Carnival during December. Never fear, though! We will ring in the New Year with cookies!!

Happy Holidays and Happy Baking!!

I did make the rugelach but they did not turn out. I have them up but in no way, are they rugelach.

Katrina said...

Great post, Tami. Thanks.
That cinnamon cookie was a good one. I brought a bag of cinnamon chips from Kansas when we moved to Utah, they were always available year round in Kansas, but I keep forgetting to look for them in Utah.

We Are Not Martha said...

Snickerdoodles on steroids sound perfect to me!! I need to find me some cinnamon chips :)


Kerri said...

I was surprised that I had to hunt for the cinnamon chips. I did find them at HEB (local grocery store) but figured that Walmart or Super Target would have had too with the seasonal baking items. No luck.

I do think that I would add some pecans and maybe a touch of chocolate chips next time. (we were out of pecans when I made them).

But everyone that tried these cookies really did love them so I know I will make them again (have chips leftover) for holiday gifts.

Katy said...

Everyone's cookies look great! I totally dropped the ball and forgot to make them...oops. :) But I definitely need to, they sound like my kind of cookie!! I even have cinnamon chips in the pantry!

Tia said...

looks wonderful everybody! i fell off the bandwagon and didn't make these :( but i'm regretting it!

Amanda said...

They all look wonderful! Our stores have plenty of cinnamon chips. Hmm, these would make good foodie gifts, just the bags of chips! LOL

Barb Szyszkiewicz said...

These are delicious. I changed them up a bit, since I had the wrong kind of nuts on hand and I don't like cinnamon chips. Definitely a keeper!
