On Nook & Pantry blog I saw this cookie and decided to try it this morning. Since I was not going to go out to get dried cranberries or cherries, I used maraschino cherries instead . They tasted really good with them. There are two more cookies I wish to try over the next week or two so stay tuned.


  • Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soday
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cup Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, chopped in half
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips and chunks
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350º degrees.
  • Directions:
  • Toast pecans in fry pan until nicely browned.
  • Chop the cherries in half.
  • In bowl add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir with whisk to combine.
  • In another bowl combine oatmeal, chocolate and cherries.
  • Place butter in stand mixer and beat until smooth.
  • Add brown sugar and beat until well blended.
  • Add egg and vanilla.
  • When well incorporated add flour mixture.
  • Mix this only until mixture comes together.
  • Add the oatmeal mixture.
  • At this point I usually use a wooden spoon to combine.
