Oatmeal and Cinnamon Chip Cookies


One day while grocery shopping I saw bags of Cinnamon Chips in the baking aisle. I had not seen anything like that previously, so I bought two bags, brought them home and promptly forgot about them. Yesterday I had the baking bug and decided to use them in Oatmeal Cookies. They turned out really well!

Next time I will add Golden Raisins, and perhaps some Pecans.

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips
3/4 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350°F.

Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in bowl until creamy.

Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour and baking soda; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in oats, cinnamon chips and raisins (batter will be stiff). Drop by heaping teaspoons unto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes on until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. About 4 dozen.

Two things: You rock! I gotta get my honey to make me some of these as an excuse to manage my blood sugars -- cinnamon good (I'm a type 1). Two, you should be a sponsor or rep for Demarle. They have a ton of cool stuff that i'm certain you could use.
