Soft and chewy cinnamon chocolate chunk cookies. A fun twist on a classic!

How is it already June? I know I’m always amazed by how time flies, but seriously… we’re creeping up on the halfway mark in the year. A few more weeks and we’re halfway to 2016. What?! It doesn’t seem possible.

School is almost out. The lazy days of Summer are almost here – hooray! Now, if we could only get Mother Nature to get herself back on track, we’ll be doing good! Our nearly perfect 80°+ days have taken a backseat to cold and wet 50 something days. Perhaps it’s for the best though and the rain will wash away most, if not all, of the nasty pollen. Has it been an especially pollen heavy year everywhere or just in New England? I’m ready for pollen free days.

Also, I got a new pair of flip flops a month ago and they’re seriously the best thing ever. When I first heard of Sanuk, I thought no way could they be as comfortable as a real yoga mat… or like those squishy kitchen mats that I honestly wish my entire kitchen floor were covered in. I tried them on one day in DSW and fell in love. I had to have them. If you’re in the market for a new pair, try these, you’ll love them! Squishy, comfy flip flops that you can wear all day long are an absolute must for Summer!

It’s been months since I’ve made a cookie. Shocking, I know. But clearly other things like ice cream and pizza have taken over.

I accidentally left these out on the counter overnight, totally bummed when I saw them sitting on the cooling rack still. I expected rock hard cookies and found the opposite! Soft cookies as the day they were made. Tasty, flavorful and clearly not in need of a container. However, I wouldn’t recommend that method for long. Surely all cookies eventually need storage. Take that as a sign for how amazingly soft and chewy these cookies are. Perfect.

Proper storage or not, these won’t last long! Make sure you grab a couple for yourself before they disappear!

Flavorful chewy cinnamon cookies packed with chocolate chunks… and topped off with extra chocolate for good measure. These are a fun twist on a classic cookie. Be sure to add these cinnamon chocolate chunk cookies to your baking plans!

Soft and chewy cinnamon chocolate chunk cookies. A fun twist on a classic!


  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 C light brown sugar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 C cake flour
  • 3/4 C bread flour
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (roughly 3/4C, plus additional for topping)


  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla, scraping bowl as needed. With mixer running on low, add in cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour. Increase mixer to fully combine dough. Stir in chopped chocolate by hand. 
  • Chill dough for several hours or overnight. If chilling overnight, allow to sit on the counter for 15-30 minutes to come to a scoop-able but semi-firm consistency. 
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. 
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, space dough 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet. If desired, press additional chopped chocolate into the top of each scoop of dough. 
  • Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes or until edges are just turning a light golden. Immediately transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  • Store in an airtight container or freeze for later.
