Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
    Gradually add to the butter/sugar mixture.
  3. Stir in the oatmeal and the morsels.
  4. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake in a preheated 375º oven for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. NOTE: You can substitute Nestle Butterscotch morsels for the cinnamon chips, for a slightly different taste.
  7. Here are the Cinnamon Chips I buy. They are sometimes hard to find, hence the above substitution.
