Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

19 Dec

I don’t usually post recipes that often, but it seems like it’s the season of baking and eating, and I’ve had requests for yesterday’s goat milk fudge recipe as well as today’s cranberry oatmeal cookie.  I promise a break from cooking after today.

In a mixing bowl, cream 1 cup buttered flavored Crisco and 1/2 cup white sugar.  Add 1 Tablespoon of milk (Minnie’s milk is best), 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 cup of brown sugar.  Mix this all together.

Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon soda, and 1 cup flour.  Mix it and add 3 cups of oatmeal.

When it’s thoroughly mixed, stir in 1 cup of dried cranberries.  You can add nuts also if you like.

Spray your cookie sheet with no-stick spray and place walnut-sized balls of dough on the pan.

Bake it in a 350*F oven for about 10 minutes.  Remove them from the pan to cool.

It’s a very easy recipe and will be sure to bring holiday smiles to faces.
