Posts Tagged ‘cookies’

A few weeks ago I needed to make some cookies to take to a meeting and of course, seemed to be out of everything I needed to make the cookies I wanted. Feeling a bit inspired, I threw some miscellaneous ingredients together and ended up with a batch of pretty tasty cookies. I finally remembered what I put in the original recipe and made the cookies again this week. Although I have a hard time not eating the dough, these cookies are a little different with a great flavor.

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsps. cinnamon

1 1/3 cups flour

1/4 tsp. salt

3 cups oatmeal, uncooked

3/4 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl, beat together butter and sugars with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add to butter mixture; mix well. Stir in oats, cranberries, nuts and chips; mix well.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes until cookies are set but not yet brown for soft cookies or 10-12 minutes and turning brown for crispy cookies.

Happy Entertaining and enjoy!
