Oatmeal Cookies #236

Recipe by Susie in Texas
READY IN: 30mins




  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In large mixing bowl beat butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add eggs, molasses and vanilla and combine well.
  • In another bowl combine oats, flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon, stirring to mix together.
  • Add dry ingredients slowly to the butter mixture, mixing until all dry ingredients are incorporated.
  • I do this using a wooden spoon because the dough becomes too thick for an electric mixer.
  • Add pecans, both kinds of baking chips and dried cranberries last.
  • Continue mixing by hand until all ingredients form a stiff dough.
  • Measuring about a tablespoon of dough for each cookie, place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • This cookie dough will not spread while baking so you might want to flatten each mound of dough just slightly with fingers or back of spoon.
  • Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookie begins to brown.
  • Carefully Remove baked cookies from baking sheet as soon as they come out of the oven.
