Ultimate Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by agdurham

Wanted to make my own version of coffee shop oatmeal cookies. Took a few tries but really like what I ended up with. They're soft and chewy and loaded with dried fruit to make them extra good.

Big grin here. I made 2 dozen cookies using Splenda and Splenda Brown for the sugars. I'm out of apricots so had to skip them and used frozen fresh cranberries for the dried (I like them a lot better) and got some utterly delicious cookies. I'll certainly keep this recipe to use again. Made foe PAC, Spring 2014.
