  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until soft and light. Add brown sugar and continue mixing.
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  • Add oats. Mix just until combined. 
  • Fold in dried cranberries.
  • Form small scoops of cookies. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on baking sheet and then remove to a baking rack to continue cooling. 



  • Make certain your butter is at room temperature
  • Whip butter before adding any other ingredients
  • Mix in brown sugar until smooth and creamy
  • Use real vanilla, not imitation
  • Use Old Fashioned Oats - not quick cook oats. Old Fashioned Oats are thicker and hold together better in these cookies.
  • Add sweetened dried cranberries
