Cinful Cookies

Yes you read it right, these are Cinful Cookies. I gave them that name because the cookies are full of cinnamon chips, cinnamon, and pecans. The cookies are full of Cinnamon and they are delicious. These are going to be the new non-chocolate, chocolate chip cookies in our house.

 Cinful Cookies
(4 ½oz) unsalted butter, softened
½ cup (4oz) granulated sugar
¼ cup (1 ½oz) light brown sugar
1 egg
1 ¼ cups (6 ½oz) all purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1teaspoon cinnamon                                                                                                                                  
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup pecan nuts, toasted and roughly chopped                                                        

1 cup cinnamon chips

Preheat the oven to 350ºF; line two large baking sheets with non-stick baking paper. Place the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Fold through the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans and cinnamon chips – dough will be very stiff. With a ice cream scoop put dough onto prepared baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart – cookies won’t spread much.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes then transfer cookies to wire racks.
