If you’ve ever made oatmeal raisin cookies you will notice that this recipe is very similar. You start by creaming butter and sugar, then adding one egg at a time and lastly the vanilla. In a different bowl, stir the flour, cinnamon, sugar and baking soda. Take that bowl and add the mix to your wet ingredients bowl.
When that’s all combined, you can fold in the chocolate, cranberries, pecans and oats.
Oatmeal Cookie Tips
- Don’t pack the flour. Be sure to scoop it gently and level it off evenly.
- Don’t over-mix. Once ingredients are mixed together stop without over mixing.
- Use softened butter. Like most cookies, don’t try and use cold butter. You can do this quickly by filling a glass with very hot water. Then once it has warmed the glass, pour it out and cover the stick of butter with the warm glass. This will soften the butter.
