A new Take on the Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie

 It's a NEW Take on the Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie!!

While browsing the shelves in the baking department, I ran across Hershey's Cinnamon Chips.  Humm....what could I make with those??  The first thing that popped into my mind was Oatmeal Cookies and I headed to the recipe file to find the Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie recipe on the Quaker Box.   Grabbed the recipe and made a few changes, including removing the raisins and adding the Cinnamon Chips and chopped Pecans.  

This is the original off the box recipe.
