Chewy Oatmeal Dried Fruits Cookies

This is a twist on the oatmeal raisin cookies. Chewy oatmeal raisin is one of my favorite cookies and it's even better when you add other dried fruits to the mix.

Oatmeal Raisin, Cherry and Cranberry Cookies
about 3 dozen
  • 1 cup soften unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup flour (if you don't want to use almond meal then use 1 1/4 cup of flour instead)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raisin
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract; mix until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, combined flour, almond meal, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture. Mix in half of the oats until well incorporated, then add in the remanding oats and dried cherries, cranberries and raisins. Drop by rounded table spoon full onto the cookie sheets. Then bake for about 8-10 minutes (12 if you like it not as soft).
