Ingredients

For the Cookie Dough:

  • 1 cup butter (2 cubes) softened
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) Snickers baking bites

For Coating the Cookie Dough Balls:

  • 1/4 cup  granulated sugar
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

For the Cookie Dough:

  • In a medium size bowl, add the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Mix together and set aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar, and eggs. Beat until light and creamy. Set the mixer on low speed and slowly spoon in the dry ingredients.  Mix until a dough forms.  
  • Set the cookie dough on to a large piece of plastic wrap and form the dough into a fairly flat round. Wrap the dough completely in plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for an hour. 
  • After the dough is done chilling in the refrigerator, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For Forming and Coating the Cookie Dough Balls:

  • In a small bowl, add sugar and cinnamon.  Stir it until incorporated. Set aside while making the cookie dough balls.  
  • Roll 1-1/2 teaspoons of dough into a ball. Then flatten out the dough ball with the back side of a small spoon or the palm of your hand. 
  • Set a Snickers baking bite in the middle of the flat piece of dough. Wrap the dough around the candy and form a ball that completely covers it. 
  • Coat the dough ball with the cinnamon and sugar mixture on all sides. Set the sugar and cinnamon-coated cookie dough balls on a large ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat the process with the remaining cookie dough.
  • Bake in a preheated oven in batches. 
  • So that the cookie doesn't form a "mound" in the middle; after it bakes for 10 minutes, lightly press a spatula on top of each cookie to slightly flatten it. Then bake for another 4 minutes (total baking time is 13 to 14 minutes). 
  • Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.

Notes

TIPS:

  1. So that the cookie doesn't form a "mound" in the middle, after the cookie bakes for 10 minutes, lightly press a spatula on top of each cookie to slightly flatten it.  Then bake for another 4 minutes (total baking time is 13 to 14 minutes).
  2. For a delicious and fun finger-food dessert, break the cookies into medium-size pieces to make a "Broken Cookie Party Mix".  Serve in a bowl and garnish with the remaining Snickers bites.
