It’s recipe Friday.  Here is my favorite cookie recipe that I got from my friend Detta, who originally was trying to make another cookie, made a mistake in the ingredients, and found she loved these cookies so much she just named them Mistake Cookies.

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups Quaker Oats (quick, uncooked)
  • 1 12-oz. package milk chocolate chips
  • ½ 12-oz. package Heath Almond Toffee Bits
