Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Have you ever heard of HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips? Unless you're from Pennsylvania, you probably have not. My aunt in PA first introduced me to these delectable little chips and I have scoured the grocery stores in the D.C. area and never been able to find them.
After coming home from a very long day of work and class and then missing the bus and having to walk home in the rain I found I had a package waiting for me at my front desk. When I opened the package I couldn't believe what was in there...two packages of HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips from my aunt!! What a nice surprise to come home to.
If you can get your hands on these cinnamon chips you should give these cookies a try. The cinnamon chip is such a unique flavor that most people haven't had before, so they will keep everyone guessing!
adapted from HERSHEY'S
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
11/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 2/3 cups HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat the butter and both sugars in a bowl until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine the flour and baking soda then add to the butter mixture and beat well. Stir in the oats, cinnamon chips, and chocolate chips.
Drop by heaping teaspoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cool for 1 minute before transferring cookies to a wire rack.
