Cinnamon Surprise: Snickerdoodle Dough Truffles

As you know by now, Snickerdoodles are a favorite here at the ManckWhite kitchen; cinnamon and sugar are one of our love languages : ) As delicious as the baked goods are, sometimes in the heat of summer I just want a big ol’ hunk of dough rather than messing with the oven, you know? Mom always told me not to eat raw cookie dough unless I wanted salmonella, so I was going sadly cookie-dough-less… until now!

Snickerdoodle Dough Truffles take all of the wonderful sweet and spiced flavors of snickerdoodles and makes them into cool little bite-sized treats. By replacing eggs with cream cheese, we remove any danger and add decadent creaminess in its place. Then we coat the whole shebang in cinnamon-y white chocolate to cap off a perfect sweet bite.

Honest to goodness, I had to hide these from my husband so they’d make it up to Albany for his parents. They’re the perfect size and taste for a hard-to-resist indulgence.

For a special 4th of July twist, add red and blue sprinkles to their tops as the white chocolate sets and call them flavor fireworks!

Snickerdoodle Dough Truffles

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Beat cream cheese and butter with sugars in mixer for 2-3 minutes, or until creamy. Add flour, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and cream of tartar, then beat until smooth.
  2. Form dough into 1 Tablespoon-sized balls and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or flexible cutting board. Place in freezer and freeze for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.
  3. Combine white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir together until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Dunk dough balls into chocolate one by one, tap off excess chocolate, then place back on to original sheet.
  4. Top coated truffles with cinnamon and allow to set, about 15 minutes. Store truffles in refrigerator for one week, or freezer for one month.
