Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies
Oatmeal Cinnamon Chips Cookies from Hershey's Kitchens
1 C butter or margarine, softened
1 C packed brown sugar
1/3 C granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 C quick-cooking oats
1 bag (10 oz) Hershey's cinnamon chips
3/4 C raisins
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Beat butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combined flour and baking soda; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in oats, cinnamon chips, and raisins (batter will be stiff).
3. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. About 4 dozen.
* To lighten it up and make myself feel less guilty eating a dozen, I used 1/2 C applesauce and 1/2 C butter. I also used 1/3 C Splenda (sugar substitute) and 4 egg whites.
* I also think I'll add more raisins next time. But I'll definitely make these again!
Let me know if you try it without substituting the "lighter" variations and how you liked them!
