Here's what you need: brown sugar, butter, light corn syrup, egg, flour, salt, baking soda, ground pecans or walnuts, and HERSHEY'S cinnamon chips
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until slightly golden around edges and still soft in the middle. Allow to cool for a few minutes on pan.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 (10 oz.) bag HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips, divided
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 cup finely ground pecans or walnuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. shortening
Beat butter and brown sugar together until fluffy. Add in egg and corn syrup, mixing well. Place 1 cup of cinnamon chips in microwave-safe bowl and microwave on Medium power (50%) for 1 minute, then stir. If necessary, heat for 15 seconds more and stir until chips are melted. Stir melted chips into the butter mixture. In separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the cinnamon chip mixture and stir until just blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is firm enough to handle.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into 1 inch balls and roll into the ground nuts, lightly pressing the nuts into the dough. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle all the cookies with Cinnamon Chip Drizzle.
Cinnamon Chip Drizzle : Place remaining 2/3 cup cinnamon chips in microwave safe bowl with 1 1/2 tsp. shortening(do not use butter, margarine or oil). Microwave on Medium power for 1 minute; stir until mixture is smooth.
( HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips are a seasonal item in stores...I plan on stocking up this year ;-))
These will make the perfect cookie to take to that cookie exchange you're invited to, or maybe even to give to the sweet hostess that is throwing a fun holiday party. No matter who the recipient is, they will love this sweet treat. Oh, if you happen to leave these out for the jolly man in the red suit, you may want to leave a carrot treat for the reindeer too. ;-)
