How this recipe came to be:

With oatmeal cookies being one of my all-time favorite cookies and cinnamon being one of my all-time favorite holiday tastes, I decided to combine the two into one deliciously flavorful Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie.

Trust me. They’re delicious!!

Why this recipe works:

These are crispy, crunchy, cinnamony (if that’s even a word), and packed with great oatmeal flavor.

They’re everything a holiday cookie should be!

How many cookies does this recipe make?

4½ dozen, 2½” cookies.

Can the cinnamon red hot candy be left out of this recipe?

Yes, but IMHO, that’s what makes these cookies so special and unique.

However, if you do want to leave them out, but still want a hit of cinnamon flavor, feel free to mix in 1½ teaspoons of ground cinnamon to the batter before baking.

Can these cookies be frozen after baking?

Yes.

Store them in an air-tight freezer container and freeze them for up to 3 months.

Additional Christmas treats and cookies you’ll also enjoy:

*Fried Rosette Snowflake Cookies (not shown)

Part of the fun of eating a Fried Rosette Snowflake Cookie is the dusting of confectioners sugar that will inevitably snow down the front of your shirt as you crunch into these crispy little holiday treats. There’s no way around it, so just give in and let it snow!
