Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

The kitchen was just about cleaned up from Thanksgiving dinner, and our thoughts turned to the annual family party on Friday which warranted a freshly made dessert. This cookie recipe is from an old newspaper clipping, and credited to Quaker. It’s a fairly basic recipe, with the addition of dried cranberries. The cookies came out pretty well, and of course we had to sample a few ourselves.

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
3 c. oats
1 c. dried cranberries

Heat oven to 350F. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, and cinnamon and mix well. Stir in oats and cranberries. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes, or until brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, and then remove to wire rack.
