Cinnamon Chip Cookies

{This was posted late on Friday, so I'm reposting...}

PSSSSTT!!  I'm guest posting (my very first time!) at Mandy's Recipe Box this Saturday, May 14th.  I'd be honored if you'd stop by....

I tried this recipe recently for the first time and fell in love with these delicious treats.

I don't remember ever making cookies that baked this thick and still tasted wonderful, and not dry.

I found the recipe at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker and followed the directions to a tee.

And I'm sooo glad I did - in my opinion, these are the perfect cookie.

They're thick & crispy on the outside...soft in the center.

With a wonderful cinnamon flavor...



1 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups ground oatmeal (place in blender until pulverized)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 bag of cinnamon chips (found in choco chip aisle...sometimes only seasonally)
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tb. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients and stir in until blended.  Add the cinnamon chips.  In a shallow bowl, combine the 1/2 c. sugar and 1 Tb. cinnamon. Drop tablespoonsful of dough (use small scoop if desired or just roll into balls) and roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture.  (I think they'd be plenty tasty omitting this step). Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes.  Let rest 1 minute before removing to rack to cool.

Yield: about 5 dozen nice-sized cookies
