Left over Christmas oatmeal cookies

1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1-1/2 cups white sugar
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4-1/2 cups quick cooking oats

Plus, left over toffee crumbles, nuts, chocolate chips and any other stuff left over from Christmas. :o) Just toss it all in and bake as directed and enjoy.
This recipe's Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 2 dozen.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely."
