Riley's Double Chip Cinnamon Cookies

All day Riley has been asking if he could make cookies. I think he asked me twelve times, at least. So, I finally got everything out and let him create. And I decided that for every time he pestered me, I'll let him bake a different kind of cookie. Here's the first of Riley's 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. It won't be twelve days in a row, but it'll be twelve days between now and Christmas!

He wanted to make cinnamon cookies with two kinds of chips. Here's his recipe...

1 C butter
1 C organic dark brown sugar
1 C organic granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 t baking soda
2 C white whole wheat flour
1 C ground almonds
2 t pure vanilla extract
1 T ground cinnamon
2 t eggnog
1 C semisweet chocolate chips
1 C white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the eggs and blend until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and eggnog. Sift in the dry ingredients - except the chips - and blend with a spatula until just moistened. Gently fold in the chips. Drop by rounded spoonful onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes - or until the cookies are nicely browned.

Caveats: These spread out quite a bit, so give your cookies room to flatten. And cooking them for a shorter time with render them more chewy. Riley wanted his crispy

Enjoy with a glass of eggnog!
