Spicy Cinnamon- Oatmeal Cookies


½ cup butter, softened
½ cup shortening
1½ cups granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 Tbs molasses
1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups oats (1 cup quick, 1 cup old-fashioned)
1½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves
1½ cups cinnamon chips (1 bag)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add sugars, molasses, vanilla and eggs.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (except for chips). Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until ingredients are blended. Stir in cinnamon chips.

4. Place spoonfuls of cookie dough on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies no longer appear raw-looking in the middle. They will still be soft and tender, so let them cool on the cookie sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: About 5 dozen

Cooking Tips
*Cinnamon chips can sometimes be tough to locate. If your market carries chips made by Hersheys, check there. You can always ask the management if they will consider ordering them for you. King Arthur Flour’s website sells them too. Or go to the Hershey site and use their product locator & they will give you the locations of the nearest markets that carry their cinnamon chips.
