Best. Cookies. Ever.

Oh man, I had to make cookies for a family picnic yesterday and I decided to create my own recipe based on the million other recipes I've tried before.

Here's what I did:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of butter (at room temp)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal, uncooked
1 bag Hershey's cinnamon chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until light and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add flour mixture and beat just until combined (don't over mix). Stir in cinnamon chips.

Drop tablespoon size balls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-11 minutes until the bottoms just start to brown. Cool one minute on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Incredibly good.
