Oatmeal & Dried Cranberries Chewy Cookies (Martha Stewart)

This was a big batch of cookies baked by me and my sis
She has been watching Martha's video on making this cookies, drooling each time
Originally it used dried cherry but we decided to use dried cranberries instead

Recipe is from Martha Stewart's site

What you need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup dark-brown sugar (I used packed light brown sugar)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups dried sour cherries (I used dried cranberries)
  1. Preheat oven to 175degC. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder, set aside
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat to incorporate. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed to combine. Stir in the oats and dried cranberries
  3. Drop the dough (50g each) onto prepared baking sheets, leaving 5 inches between cookies. Bake until edges are just turning brown, about 20 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks to cool completely

If you like chewy cookies with oats, you'll love it. If you also like dried fruits, you'll love this cookies even more :)

  3. Hi Alice,

    Totally understand your sis... I have Martha Stewart book, Cookies and can't stop drooling whenever I browse through this book... LOL!

    We don't have dried cherries here in Australia too and I did the same for all my American-originated recipes substituting all dried cherries with dried cranberries.

  11. I love oatmeal cookies. Although I like raisins, I like cranberries even more, so I often substitute cranberries for raisins. Substituting cranberries for cherries is a good idea too. Btw, nice to connect with you on FB :o) Happy holiday!!
