"Cinnamony" Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Author: Betsy Cohen
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 36 mins
Total time: 56 mins
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup cinnamon chips
  1. For the cookies:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Arrange oven racks to the top third and lower third. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the oats and stir with a spoon to mix the ingredients. Set aside.
  4. Beat the butter, sugar and brown sugar for 3 minutes, scraping the bowl down as needed. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. Add one-half of the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until incorporated. Add the vanilla and milk to blend. Add the other half of the dry ingredients. Lastly, add the chocolate and cinnamon chips.
  5. Use a 1½ teaspoon scoop to drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets up and down as well as front to back halfway through the baking time.
  6. Cool completely on the baking sheets.
  7. Betsy's tidbits:
  8. There is always a great debate in our house as to what goes into these cookies. If cinnamon chips are not your thing, or are not easily found, skip them and add 1½ cups of miniature semisweet chocolate chips. Raisins and/or walnuts may also be included. Figure you have about 1½ cups to play with and then fill that measuring cup with the ingredients you want to have with your "Cinnamony" Oatmeal Cookies.
  9. If you do not have enough baking sheets to bake at one time, bake one batch at a time. Allow the cookies and baking sheet to cool completely before transferring the cookies to a container and then using the parchment paper lined (wiped free of crumbs) baking sheet again.
  10. If you do not have a small scoop, use a 1½ teaspoon measuring spoon to drop the cookies onto the baking sheets.
