Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies

For some reason I have always loved Snickerdoodle cookies.  For some reason, I think part of what makes them so good is the cream of tartar.   They are simple, delicious, and coated with cinnamon sugar....what's not to love?  It got me thinking that they might taste good if there was a chocolate version.  Evidently I am the last to know that there are a ton of chocolate snickerdoodle recipes out there!  and, they are indeed delicious. 

Here are your ingredients:

Cream together:         1 1/2 c. sugar
                                   1/2 c. butter, softened
                                   1 tsp. vanilla

Now add:                   2 eggs

Once blended, add the dry ingredients (try not to over-mix the dough!):

                                   2 1/4 c. flour
                                   1 tsp. cream of tartar
                                   1/2 tsp. baking soda
                                   1/4 tsp. salt
                                   1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa

In a small bowl, combine:

                2 tbsp. sugar
                2 tsp. cinnamon

Shape the dough into balls and roll in the cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until set.  Remove from the cookie sheets as soon as they come out of the oven.

These cookies are are so crunchy and sweet and the combination of the cinnamon and chocolate together?  Oh my word...... delicious!
