These are AWESOME. First of all, DOUBLE it. Otherwise, they will disappear the first day you make them. I tried to make it somewhat healthier which USUALLY means "yuck". Not this time. Here's what I did: added chopped walnuts, added ground flax, used whole wheat flour, substituted about 1/4 of the butter for unsweetened applesauce, and added unsweetened coconut. I also didn't add any white sugar at all. I stuck with the amount called for in regards to brown sugar. They were still sweet enough. My new favorite cookie! YUM
- 1 1⁄2 cups old fashioned oats (not quick cooking)
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup dark raisin
- 1⁄4 cup golden raisin
- 1⁄4 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tablespoons dark raisins, for topping
- 4 tablespoons golden raisins, for topping
