Cinnamon Chip Cookies ~ Yum

Guess what I found in the baking section?
Hershey's Cinnamon Chips!
Every now and then I will run across a recipe that calls for these... they are very elusive and hard to find. When I saw them sitting innocently enough on the grocery shelf, I snatched them right up!
~*~ Using a recipe on the back, I baked up a batch of Oatmeal Cinnamon Chips Cookies. The recipe called for raisins, but I added milk chocolate chips instead. They were pretty delicious. Thought you might like to give them a whirl!
Oatmeal Cinnamon Chips Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 2/3 cups (10 oz. pkg.) Hershey's Cinnamon Chips
*3/4 C. Raisins
*I substituted milk chocolate chips, probably about 1 cup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
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 and/or chocolate chips (batter will be stiff).
Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
Makes about 4 dozen.
Mine didn't make 4 dozen, more like 2...I like BIG cookies!

Now all you need to do, is pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee, sit down and relax with a nice warm cookie, what in the world is much better than that!
The giveaway is still up and running! Make sure you drop your calling card in my comment basket, so that I know you have stopped in to visit me in Hickory Hollow.
