Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are wonderful! They're like a kitchen sink cookie.  They've got everything you'd want in a cookie.  Chocolate, cranberries, raisins, oatmeal...did I mention chocolate?  Oh so delicious.  It was really hard while making Christmas baskets to set some of these aside for my family.  They were that good.




Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Makes about 50 cookies if you do heaping teaspoons.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 package (12 ounce) white baking chips



Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. 
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture slowly. 
  • Stir in the oats, raisins, cranberries and orange peel. Stir in baking chips.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. 
  • Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
