Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Posted on November 11, 2009. Filed under: Cookies, Desserts |

This was the cookie Heather contributed to the 2008 Christmas cookie party. Oatmeal in cookies is genius. Whoever first thought of it deserves a Nobel Peace Prize in Chemistry and Peace. Their ability to conjure up something that blends so well together is unbelievable. And the combination definitely created peace in many mouths. Wow, and look, they actually did something to deserve it, not just say something. Oh shoot, some people may hate me for saying that. Oh well. Get over it.

Recipe yields 3 dozen cookies
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
¾ c. all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup coco powder
1 c. dried cranberries
1 c. vanilla chips
½ c. butter (melted)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

* Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat in butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix in cranberries and vanilla chips. Cover mixed dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

* Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake: 375° for 8-10 minutes (or until browned)
