Land O'Lakes' Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Rounds

These below are actually from the first time I made these (last December of 2010):

These are small, slightly crispy, light, and cinnamon-sugary. Got the recipe from Land O' Lakes here. They're simple, good, and they make a great gift. You can tie them together in a stack with a bow or do something cute like that. My dad said they taste like snickerdoodles, which I don't like, but they're definitely better in my opinion because they have chocolate in them.

1  cup butter, softened
1  cup sugar
1  egg
2  tablespoons milk
1  teaspoon vanilla
3  cups all-purpose flour
2  teaspoons baking powder
1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

(1) Combine butter &1 cup sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy
(2) Add egg, milk & vanilla and continue beating until well mixed
(3) Reduce speed to low & add flour, baking powder & 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
(4) Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed
(5) Stir in chocolate chips
(6) Divide dough into fourths & shape each into 8-inch log
(7) Combine 1/4 cup sugar &1 teaspoon cinnamon in small bowl. Spread sugar mixture onto waxed paper.
(8) Roll the logs in sugar mixture until outside is well coated & wrap each in plastic wrap
(9) Refrigerate until firm (2 hours) or put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes (I chose the latter method because I didn't have much time)
(10) Heat oven to 375°F
(11) Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices w/ sharp knife
(12) Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets
(13) Bake for 8-10 min or until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned
(14) Cool 1 minute
(15) Remove from cookie sheets
