Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

19 Nov

Hi again!!

I made cookies!!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies!!!

Have you tried cinnamon chips?

Holy yummy goodness!

They are ALWAYS out-of-stock at my grocery store, but I lucked out a few weeks ago and found one lone bag.  I was super psyched, and of course now that I know how great they are; I can’t find anymore!!  I’m hoping some local store decides to stock up on them for the holidays, because they are super!

I thought they would be a little over-powering, but they are little chips of cinnamon perfectness.  Just right!

And they look awesome too, their color is so rich……

If you can find them……hoard them! They are worth it!  And, then you can sell them for triple-price to addicted cinnamon chip junkies, that can’t find them anywhere else; like me!! 🙂


Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. hot water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 cups cinnamon chips (or less, you decide)

–  In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until smooth.

–  Add eggs and beat until incorporated.

–  dissolve baking soda in hot water and add to the creamed mixture, along with the flour, salt and cream of tartar.  Mix well.

–  Fold in oats and cinnamon chips.

–  Refrigerate for at least an hour.

–  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet, and bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

–  Allow to cool on  cookie sheet for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


They are like hearty snickerdoodles……YUM!

Cozy cookies!  The best kind, in my opinion!  At least, this time of year!

Mini Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins from Sally’s Baking Addiction

27 Sep

Fall is such a great time for baking…..

If your lucky, which fortunately here in Pa. we have been;  it’s cooling down.  And to me, cool weather means I can leave the oven on and bake even more!

There are sooo many seasonal flavors that are rich and delicious and just make you feel cozy.  It is, by far; my favorite season and time of year.  Each aisle in the grocery store has endcaps full of food that just makes you want to go home and pre-heat the oven.  It seems every brand of cookie, candy, marshmallow, etc  has their own spin on autumn flavors just screaming to be baked, dipped, rolled or melted into something delicious.  So as you can imagine, I have tons of things planned to bake 🙂

One very simple flavor that represents Fall to me is pumpkin.  I wait anxiously every year for pumpkin spice coffee and creamer to make its reappearance onto shelves.  It’s here!  Yay!  I seek out pumpkin recipes.

So when I decided I was going to blog about recipes from my favorite blogs this week, I knew that when I talked about Sally’s Baking Addiction I would have to bake something with pumpkin.  I was  originally introduced to Sally’s blog by these little balls of goodness.  I had never tried Golden Oreos but this convinced me.  And now her recipe for Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondies is a common occurrence in my kitchen.  I’ve made them over and over with a few different combinations.

There is something for everyone in this blog.  Sally will put anything tasty in a cookie, there are tons of ideas.  She also adds a healthy twist to many recipes and even posts vegan recipes.  Her tone is sweet and happy, and I always enjoy reading her posts, and the recipes keep me coming back daily.

Here is my go at her Mini Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

First you mix all of the dry ingredients

And in a separate bowl you whisk the butter and brown sugar  and then add the rest of the wet ingredients…..(note Sally’s mixing of the egg…it’s a bit different)

I didn’t have any dark brown sugar, so I used light.  The batter was thick, and a beautiful color.

They stayed that color even after they were done baking.  And the best part……dipping them in butter and cinnamon sugar 🙂

They taste as good as they look.  A wonderful breakfast muffin.  Although they are small, they are a savory full muffin.  They went fabulous with my pumpkin spice coffee!  You should definitely give them a try!
