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.

    They sound yummy…throw in a few white chocolate chunks in there yet perhaps?

      That does sound good.

    I like to make oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies, but I never thought of cranberries, they sound like an excellent idea!

      Perfect for the holiday season!

      I just discovered the joys of cranberries this fall. I’ve had fun playing.

    Oh, don’t stop posting recipes on my account. 🙂

      Probably has more to do with going back to work since it’s a Monday.

    Sounds like a winning combination – but I don’t know WHERE you find the time. You put me to shame!

      I promise it’s just stress baking and ADHD put to good use. 🙂

    Now-to get whipping up some plum pudding for those hungry gypsy boys! 😉

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 7:06 am #

      I can honestly say I’ve never made plum pudding. I’m not sure I want to. How about a lovely pumpkin custard?

    They look good, reminds me I need to go and eat breakfast! Wish I had a few for just that purpose! I love oatmeal cookies for breakfast! 🙂

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 8:27 am #

      I think that’s perfectly okay! I like pumpkin or banana bread for breakfast.

    I love oatmeal cookies! Will have to add dried cranberries next time. (They are good for breakfast!)

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 10:46 am #

      I’m certainly thinking I need to make some more for my breakfasts while on break. After all, everyone seems to be encouraging this. 🙂

  9. Candy C. December 20, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

    They are *definitely* breakfast food…oats, fruit, milk! 😉

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

      Sounds like a perfect breakfast!

    These cookies sound really, really good. I am a BIG fan of oatmeal cookies but have never tried them with cranberries. That will change soon. :))

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 2:45 pm #

      They are certainly worth trying.

    I love the addition of cranberries, Teresa. I wish everyone in my family liked them. Mind you, I could make a batch up just for me. 🙂

    • Teresa December 20, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

      I think that is certainly a good idea! I like those recipes that not everyone else will eat because it means there’s more I don’t have to share! 😉
