Directions:

Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until blended. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt, gradually add to butter mixture, beating until smooth. (Dough will be stiff) Using spoon or with hands, work 1 cup cinnamon chips and walnuts into dough. Divide dough into four equal parts. Shape each part into a log about 8 inches long.

Turn each slice, bake an additional 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven, cool slightly. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

I substitue Splenda for the sugar. You can also use any flavor of chips. Den really likes the carmel one and the dark chocolate rasberry.
