cranberry oatmeal cookies
PREP TIME 15 mins, COOK TIME 15 mins
7 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
3⁄4 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
1⁄4 tsp baking powder
1⁄4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1⁄2 cup oatmeal
1⁄4 cup dried cranberries
1 Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric hand whisk, until light and fluffy, then whisk in the egg.
2 Sift in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, and fold to combine. Next, fold in the oatmeal and cranberries.
3 Place heaped tablespoons of the mixture, spaced well apart, on2 nonstick baking sheets and bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes, until they begin to brown at the edges. The centers should remain a little chewy.
4 Remove the cookies from the oven. Allow them to rest on their sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
These are delicious to eat, while still warm, with a glass of cold milk.
