Cinnamon's Wake

Even when the fridge is empty and the cabinets are bare, the one thing I always have on hand are baking supplies. Being able to whip up something sweet when I need a fix is necessary.

A couple of weeks ago, when I was browsing through the baking section at the grocery store looking for ideas, I spotted something I'd never seen before, Cinnamon Chips. I figured, these could either be super gross or unbelievable. So I bought them.

They turned out the be an amazing ingredient. They made the best oatmeal raisin cookies I've ever had and can't say enough about how delicious these turned out to be!

So delicious...that they are being brought to you here and at Madtasty! It's my first week posting and I just had to start with these.
