A couple of weekends ago I took a trip to Martha’s Backyard (aka the American store) as I was told they had Hershey’s cinnamon chips in stock. I was also told that the cinnamon chips are fantastic in oat cookies. I whipped these up and was not disappointed!
Makes approximately 40 cookies
225 grams butter, softened
⅓ cup sugar
1 cup light muscovado sugar (I used Billingtons)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
1⅔ cups of Hershey’s cinnamon chips
1 cup roughly chopped pecans
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper.
Beat butter and sugars in a bowl until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
Sift flour and baking soda into the butter mixture, and beat together on a slow-medium speed until combined.
Stir in oats, cinnamon chips and pecans (batter will be stiff).
Drop heaped teaspoons onto your lined baking trays and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and starting to set.
Remove from the oven and transfer to wire racks after a couple of minutes to cool completely.
These are delicious as is but to change it up a little I dipped about a third of my cookies in some dark chocolate to make them extra indulgent!
