I have had a box of Spice cake mix in my cupboard for a couple of months waiting for some inspiration. When I saw these cookies on the Confessions of a Cookbook Queen earlier this week, I knew that I needed to try them out. These cookies are SO unbelievably delicious that I have made these twice this week! The first batch was for a boat ride that we took with our dear friends and their son - I gave them half of what was left over and my hubby ate the other half. I do admit to eating one for breakfast...... The second batch was for the office and across the board everyone LOVED them!!! They are so easy to make, the only change I made was to add white chocolate chips and I didn't have any cream cheese frosting so I left that part out.
These cookies have a wonderful warm spicy taste - the addition of cinnamon chips, which I love to add into my oatmeal cookies, give it a great cinnamon flavor. The oats are enough to give it some texture and the addition of the white chocolate gave it a nice sweetness. I am so glad that I found this recipe!
