Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Yield: 24 cookies Prep 15 mins Bake 350°F 14 mins to 16 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old-fashioned or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium-size bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In large bowl, with electric mixer, beat together butter and granulated and brown sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; beat 1 minute. On low speed, beat in the flour mixture until combined. Stir in the oats and dried cranberries.

2. Onto ungreased baking sheets, for each cookie, drop scant 1/4 cups of dough, spacing the mounds of dough about 3 inches apart.

3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden but still moist on top. Remove cookies to racks to cool. Repeat with remaining dough for a total of 24 cookies. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
