{Recipe} Yummy Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Morsel Cookies


My little girlies asked to make cookies the other day.  Rather than making a special trip to the grocery store, I came up with a recipe using ingredients that we had on hand.  It made for a fun, rainy day afternoon activity.

The cookies we made would have made the perfect gift.....

They sure looked pretty sitting on a cute stand.....

But, we decided to enjoy every little morsel!

Want to make them?  Here's the recipe:

2/3 cup butter or margarine at room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 to 1 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup milk chocolate morsels
1/2 cup white chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium size mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and mix well.
Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl.
Add to butter mixture in small quantities, mixing well after each addition.
Stir in dried cranberries and chocolate morsels.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a light golden brown.
Let cool.
