  • ½ stick of butter softened

Make Your Own Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies

For 10 large cookies that will absolutely impress, these Cinnamon Toast Crunch cookies are an effortless way to show off. After prepping your oven and your cookie sheet, you’re going to mix the Crisco and both sugars on medium with your stand mixer. You want this mixture to be creamy and fluffy, which should happen in just a few minutes.

To this, you’ll add the eggs and vanilla, and mix for a minute more. Then add the cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix for another minute. From there, the flour goes in, and here’s where you will want to ensure all the flour is incorporated.

The Cinnamon Toast Crunch will go in next, though for the best results, we suggest crushing it up first to keep the dough consistent. You can also choose to keep it intact for chunkier cookies. Finally, the white chocolate chips go in, and then it’s time to scoop balls of dough.

Those dough balls need to get rolled in your cinnamon sugar coating first, then onto the baking tray, they go. Let them cool, then have your mixer pull and assist to make the cream cheese frosting. 

The frosting should be nice and creamy, but if the texture is off, just add another tablespoon of milk into it to adjust it. After frosting each cookie, you can place whole pieces of Cinnamon Toast Crunch on top to finish these off. Complete details on these steps and baking times follow below!
