I did only 2 dozen but I had 36 cookies. I used half butter and half vegetable oil. I didn't pack the brown sugar. I used dried cranberries. They cooked the 17 minutes require. Thanks Lainey. They're wonderful. Made for Holiday tag.

  5. Beat in the flour mixture until just combined and stir in oats, apricots and pistachios.
  6. Cover and leave bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes (or up to 6 hours) to let the dough firm up.
