Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I consider oatmeal cookies the health food of cookies.  Oatmeal lowers cholesterol, right?  I love the hint of cinnamon in these cookies.  Both regular and quick cooking oats are fine in this recipe, although I prefer the regular version myself. You can skip chilling the dough, but if you like thick, chewy cookies, it’s worth the extra 30 minutes.  These are great with raisins instead of chocolate chips, and at Christmas time, I like to use white chips and dried cranberries.
