chocolate & cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies

You know how there are those little details you know about all your close friends and family? One of those details that all my friends and family know about me is I love cinnamon, like a lot. So when I discovered cinnamon chips, I was beyond excited. After searching the baking aisles of countless grocery stores I finally found them in the clearance section one day. I bought all the bags they had and decided to save them for a special occasion. I hate when I do that, I buy something I love and then wait to use it for a 'special occasion.' When will I learn that every day is a special occasion? So I dug these cinnamon chips out of my pantry and baked a fresh batch of oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and cinnamon chips. Crispy edges, a chewy center and cinnamon chips make this cookie stand out from the rest. If you are lucky enough to find cinnamon chips at your grocery store these cookies are perfect for any 'special occasion.'

Chocolate & Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 3/4 c. quick-cooking oats
1 c. cinnamon chips
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375°F. 

In a large bowl, beat together butter, shortening and both sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time until combined. Then add vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir flour mixture into the butter and sugar mixture. Then stir in oats and once combined, stir in cinnamon chips and chocolate chips. Bake large cookies for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden.
