Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I made these before Kathleen's friends came for part of Spring Break.  I took some to Ladies' Bible Study and sent some to the beach with them.  They are very good.  I do think you need to add 2-3 minutes to the baking time to get a firmer/crispier cookie.

Jayne Lancour

3 eggs
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup chopped pecans Beth left these out
1 cup cinnamon chips Beth doubled this

At least 1 hour before making cookies, beat the eggs, and vanilla.  Stir in the raisins.  Cover and refrigerate.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add egg mixture to this.

In a smaller separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and 1 teaspoons cinnamon. 

Mix the flour mixture with the creamed mixture.

Mix in oatmeal, pecans and cinnamon chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon on ungreased cookie sheet .Beth used a cookie scoop.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 - 12 minutes. 

Cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to rack to cool completely.

This recipes makes about 7 dozen cookies, and they freeze nicely.
