Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
A wonderful cookie - crispy on the outer edges, and super chewy in the middle. Use them to make an ice cream sandwich for a summer treat!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup stick Butter Flavor Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 1/4 cup walnut pieces
Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
Combine shortening and sugars in large bowl and mix on medium until well combined. Add eggs one at a time and add vanilla. Add dry ingredients in two batches, beating on low speed until mixed well. Manually stir in oats, cranberries, and walnuts. Put dough in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to chill.
Form dough into balls (about 2 Tbsp) and place 2-3 inches apart on a baking mat or greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes until edges are golden brown and the centers still appear soft. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to completely cool. Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container.
