Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

A traditional oatmeal cookie with a cranberry twist.

2 oatmeal-cranberry-cookies

When faced with the decision of picking out the cookie of my choice from a basket with a variety of cookies in it, I always go right for the oatmeal ones.

I don’t know what comes over me.  How could I not go for the chocolate chip cookies?

Or the double chocolate ones?

Or even the really delicious looking ones with macadamia nuts in it?

Nope, it’s none of those….it’s always the oatmeal cookies.

So in honor of oatmeal cookies, here’s a scrumptious recipe with dried cranberries in it.

It’s a really simple recipe and is adapted from the recipe on the container for Quaker Oats.

The cranberries add both a delicious tart flavor and a lightly chewy texture that goes well with the oatmeal.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

and…

4-brown-sugar-in-bowl

…brown sugar.

Then,

add granulated sugar…

7-mix-cookie-batter

…and beat the ingredients with a mixer until creamy.

In a small bowl, add the eggs.

TIP – Instead of adding the eggs directly in the mixing bowl, it’s a good idea to add them to a small bowl first just in case one of them is bad or has a spot of red in the yolk area.

This way, a bad egg doesn’t contaminate the batter.

One another note, have you ever seen a single egg with 2 yolks?  It looks so unique.  I always make a wish when I see one.

Ok…on to the cookie dough.

To the mixing bowl, add eggs…

…then…

…and dried cranberries.

For a softer cookie, remove from the oven when the middle of the cookie still looks slightly soft (about 7 minutes but the amount of time may vary depending on the oven).
