Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

As promised! :) Here's the recipe for the Oatmeal Cranberry cookies I posted about a few weeks ago. I have seen many variations on these and many of them have white chocolate chips in them. I have a good recipe for those too, but DH likes these the best. He likes a crunchy-ish cookie and with a whole boatload of oats, these fit the bill. The combination of Crisco and brown sugar a oats seem to give them a tender crunch that wins him over every time. I left on Tuesday and I made these on Sunday afternoon so he would have them while I was away. Ha! When I came home from work on Monday evening, there was nary a crumb in the cookie jar. Not one cookie remained. :)



Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

1/2 C Crisco
1/2 C softened butter (I use unsalted)
3/4 C brown sugar
3/4 c granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 C flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 C rolled oats
2 C Craisins

Cream together the Crisco, softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the oats and Craisins and bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes until golden. If you bake them a little longer, they will be crunchier. Kinda depends on your oven as to how long you bake them.

I rarely make cookies anymore because I like them too much. These cookies could be dangerous in my house! ;o) Thanks for sharing the recipe.

My hubby loves cookies like these. I'll add some mini chocolate chips cuz he needs chocolate in his cookies. I'm glad you are back safe from your trip and thank you for the recipe.

Donnis is a cookie or two or three before bed person. I will give these a try. Sounds and looks good.

Oh I like the sound of this recipe. Will have to try it soon. This is the last night for our apple pie, so I'll be scrounging for Craisons in the pantry for tomorrow. Gotta have those cookies!

Hi there I am Sue from New Zealand. These cookies look like something I would make but please tell me what is Crisco?
Always enjoy your blog.

Not sure if the question was answered, but for those asking, Crisco at least in the States is vegetable shortening (or some variation on the theme). While I am a fan of dried cranberries, my husband much prefers raisins. Sadly, both of us were out of luck this weekend when I went to make these, so I changed up the add-ins based on our pantry. {grin} Thank you for sharing your recipe --- delicious! While I don't presume to 'improve' it, we did like the addition of crisp rice cereal in place of 1 cup of the rolled oats. Just a little something different...
