            Snickerdoodle cookies are a favorite holiday treat that is always on the cookie tray during the festivities. At least as long as it lasts. So now, I am going to surprise the gang with bread that tastes just like their favorite cookies.

I know it seems utterly impossible, you have to trust me guys!! This recipe calls for cinnamon chips. I realize they can be difficult to locate. They are generally only sold around the holidays in most areas. I have spoken with a few people who have used white chocolate chips or toffee chips.

They have stated and swear that either of those choices will taste superb in the bread. The cinnamon chips are becoming more popular, I believe that stores will begin to stock these regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How many loaves does this recipe make?

This will make two loaves. Do not overfill the loaf pan. If the batter reaches the top as it is baking, it will collapse in on itself and no longer rise.

Yes you can. Make the batter completely and cover the bowl. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

It can be left on your counter as long as it is covered, it will last for 4 to 5 days on the counter. If you cover and store the loaf in the refrigerator, you will be good for 6 to 8 days. It can also be frozen and remain good for up to 3 months.
