C is for cookie

Winter time brings out the baker in me, especially when it's cold and wet outside. Since I've been doing so much cake decorating, I'm almost sick of cake. So, the past two weekends I've made biscuits instead. Today's effort comes from the back of the Hershey's Cinnamon Chips packet, translated into Australian and changed just a little bit to add stuff we like and discard the stuff we don't. They spread a long way and make a thin, crispy biscuit. Keep your spoonfuls on the small side to avoid ending up with monster cookies.

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

2 cups butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tspn vanilla bean paste
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tspn bicarbonate of soda
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup dried apple, roughly chopped
1 x 240g packet cinnamon chips


Preheat oven to 180 C. Line a biscuit sheet with baking paper. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well to combine. Add vanilla and mix through. Sift together flour and bicarb soda. Add to butter mix and continue mixing. Stir through apple and cinnamon chips. Drop teaspoons of mixture onto lined baking tray. Cook 10 - 15 minutes until golden brown.
