Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Stir in the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until fully incorporated.
Mix in the oats and any add-ins you fancy. See Note.
Place scoops of oatmeal cookie dough 2 inches apart on a greased or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Use your thumb to make a hollow in the dough.
Use a piping bag or a spoon to put a dollop of jam in the center of each cookie.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies look fully baked and the edges are golden.
