Caramel Oatmeal Cookies

With the recent dip in temperatures once again, it was a good time to bake. When I go south of the border I'm always on the lookout for baking items that we don't have here yet. I spotted these caramel balls and thought they would be great to add to baking items.
These cookies were soft and chewy with a hint of cinnamon and of course, a soft caramel morsel in every bite.

Caramel Oatmeal cookies

1 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 package Kraft Caramel Bits

Cream butter and sugars, add vanilla and eggs. Mix together dry ingredients and then add to bowl. Fold in oatmeal and caramel bits. Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 -12 min at 350 F or until golden brown.
