Chocolate Cinnamon Snaps

Today I am participating in the GREAT COOKIE EXCHANGE 2006. Everything Under the Moon is hosting a blogging cookie exchange. It isn't quite as tasty as a real world cookie exchange, but I think it will still be fun!~ Check out the site for details. Here is my recipe.

Chocolate Cinnamon Snaps
2 C all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
dash salt
1/3 C unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp cloves
1/2 C softened butter
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C molasses
1 egg

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, cinnamon and cloves.
  2. In another bowl, cream the butter until soft. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.
  3. Beat in the molasses and egg. Add flour mixture. Blend until a stiff dough forms.
  4. Roll dough (half or a quarter of the dough is easier to work with) on a lightly floured board to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness.
  5. Cut into favorite shapes. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes depending on thickness. Cool a minute on the sheet before removing to a rack to complete cool.
  7. Repeat with remaining batches. Store in a tin when completely cooled.
These are a great holiday cookie. I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to trying your recipes!


  1. Yes, it is too bad that we can't actually exchange these cookies. But, this is the next best thing. I love cookie recipes - that is why I did this. Anyway, I love the sound of your recipe. I'll add this to the must try list. :>

    Thanks for participating!!

  2. I love anything with chocolate, so i am going to try these for sure! I have a recipe up too, espresso cookies.
