Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Smith's has Nestle Tollhouse morsels 2 for $4 through Tuesday. I had coupons for their Dark Chocolate chip morsels which are really good. So I decided to get creative and make something that would be good for the upcoming holidays. It's a rich cookie with lots of flavor. Adding pecans is optional. 1/2 cup makes them crunchy.

  • 3/4 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup dark chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  1. Combine butter, eggs, sugars and vanilla. Beat well.
  2. Separately, mix flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add to egg mixture.
  3. Slowly mix in rolled oats, morsels and cranberries.
  4. Drop dough into small balls onto cookie sheet. 
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.
