Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

One of our favorites. Sure they are cookies – but they are so good they sometimes make a meal! This is a short cooking-only segment.

Sarah has cooked these with all purpose flour and with gluten free flour this week. Because the first batch, gluten free, was eaten in two days and we wanted more!


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (Optionally Gluten Free baking flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup dried cranberries
3 cups uncooked old fashioned oats
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and cranberries.
