Michelle has been craving cinnamon and so I altered my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe to accommodate her using some cinnamon chips. Also, in place of the usual raisins, I put in dried cranberries.
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups uncooked oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 10 oz bag Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips
Preheat oven to 350
Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mix into butter mixture. Stir in oats and cranberries, mix well. Stir in the cinnamon chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through cooking.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, remove to wire rack.
