My husband has 2 favorite cookies. Chocolate chip and these oatmeal craisin cookies. My list of cookies that I love is much, MUCH longer....however...these are definitely high up there. They are, I must say, quite addicting. It's the same oatmeal cookie recipe I have made for a long time(I believe the vanishing oatmeal cookie recipe from Quaker)but it was the addition of dried cranberries in place of raisins that make these cookies sooo delicious.
1 cup butter, softened(I like using salted for these)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal(I usually use quick oats)
1 cup dried cranberries(or raisins)
Mix butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Mix until just blended. Add oats about 1 cup at a time and mix until blended. Fold in dried cranberries. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes. Just until edges start to turn golden.
