Patricia of Technicolor Kitchen posted a recipe for Stracciatella Snickerdoodles on my birthday last year. I pinned it immediately and can’t believe it took me this long to make them. The recipe combines my favorite ice cream with my favorite cookie. Stracciatella ice cream is created by slowly drizzling a thin stream of chocolate into the ice cream machine towards the end of churning. The end result is a delicious ice cream flecked with small pieces of chocolate. I chopped dark chocolate bar into small pieces to give these cookies a similar consistency. You can also chop up chocolate chips. The dough is chilled, then coated in cinnamon sugar before baking.
I made these for a friend that was moving away and thought they were the perfect parting gift.
Evan doesn’t nap consistently anymore, so I thought I would try to photograph these cookies while he was playing. It didn’t work out well. He was in another room, but came running when he heard the camera.
