These were DE-lish !! I, too, reduced thw amount of granulsted sugar, but it could likely be eliminated altogether. I got about 57 cookies using a #40 scoop,; they do not spread, so you can place them closer than some others. It truly IS stiff batter, takes some muscle to mix in chips and raisins. Perfect outcome at 11 minutes. HINT: cinnamon chips are not readily available ! If you see them at the super, snag up as many as you can. Alternate is King Arthur, but they are much more expensive. Thanks for sharing, Nell. These have added to my Christmas plate plans.
One of my favorite cookies! My mother has been making these for ages. We usually take a double batch with us when we go on thanksgiving vacation and they disappear quickly every time.
I was introduced to cinnamon chips when a Zaar swap partner requested a bag. I've never tried them but finally picked up a bag for myself. Made these delicious cookies tonight. They have a great flavor and almost melt in the mouth. I even placed a few in the box going in the mail tomorrow for my cookbook swap partner. I'll be making these again and again.....
I was going to post this recipe,but I am glad you did! These cookies became a staple Fall/Christmas cookie last year, when I ended up making over 350 of these!! I, too, sometimes,cut back on the sugar for my sugar-challenged friends. My children like them w/o raisins (go figure?), but when I do use raisins, I only use golden raisins. It is a wonderfully different taste. Also, another change I have made. One time I ran out of vanilla extract, so I used a Caribbean mixed essence extract. Everyone thought it tasted better than regular vanilla, so now, everyone wants it that way. Check an ethnic section or a West Indian store for mixed essence. Either way, these cookies never last two days in my house, esp. when friends stop by. All time favorite!!
For those of you trying to cut down on sugar and cholesterol, these are great made with Egg Beaters and both regular and brown sugar Splenda. My family and friends cannot tell the difference. Yum!
One of my favorite cookies. Been making them for over 10 yrs. It used to be hard to find the cinnamon chips but they seem to be carried more and more in different stores and they are coming out with different recipes that call for them too!
I have had a bag of the cinnamon chips in the freezer for a couple of months, so today I decided to make the cookie recipe on the back of the bag. They are wonderful! I am not a cookie maker but these were easy to put together and they came out beautiful. I used Crisco, I don't care for butter in cookie recipes. I didn't have any raisins, but hopefully if I can get my hands on some more bags I will definately use the raisins the next time. They are so good I can hardly stay out of them!! lol
I love these cookies. I have been making them since I found Cinnamon Chips a few years ago. It works with Dairy free butter. I also have subbed out the cinnamon chips for dairy free choc chips and it works great. =) Thanks for posting it here.
I just finished making these as bars. I bought a bag of cinnamon chips that were on sale and found the recipe on the back! Yum! I reduced the sugar a little and also tossed a few mini choc. chips on top before I baked them. I love the flavor, but I think I'd prefere some chopped nuts or coconut for added texture.
I am 10 years old and I loved them!When ever we eat them all I keep asking for more! I even made them my self!
