Festive Cranberry Oat Cookies Recipe

These cookies that I adapted from another recipe call to mind ones my mother used to bake. Instead of stirring in raisins like she did, though, I add bright red cranberries for festive flair.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2/3 cup vanilla or white chips

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls 3-in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 4 dozen.
