3 years of cookie recipes. This recipe here is my 82nd cookie recipe. Wowza.
I used to worry that I would run out of ideas for new cookies, but lately I have realized just exactly how infinite the possibilities are. In fact, there are products and ingredients out there that I have never even used.
Cinnamon chips being just one example. This is my first recipe using cinnamon chips, because this is my first time ever purchasing them. I guess I just never had a reason before.
But, reason schmeason. They were on sale and I picked some up and decided I would figure out how to use them later.
Of course, my first thought was about my favorite classic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. But just using cinnamon chips in place of chocolate chips seemed a little… boring.
And the last thing I want to be is boring.
Adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate cookie was an idea that spoke to me. Better yet, adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate oatmeal cookie… well, I think we have a winner.
And better than that… it gives me some ideas about how to celebrate my upcoming 3-year nu">cdeas abinrbr />
