Chelsea’s Recipe: Trail Mix Oatmeal Cookies
To make these cookies, you need:
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 125g (about 2/3 cup) brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cardamom (cinnamon is a fine substitute)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 95g (about 2/3 cup) all-purpose flour
- 120g (about 2/3 cup) rolled oats
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces
In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar together, adding egg, vanilla, baking soda, cardamom, and salt. Stir in flour; mix in rolled oats in gradual doses, and then add cranberries, chocolate chips, and pecan pieces. mix well.
Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, maximum 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 350. Drop 1.5″ balls of dough on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes; leave on the sheet to continue cooking for 5 minutes.
Store in an airtight container to preserve the chewy texture. They will probably last in the refrigerator for several days, but I don’t have that kind of willpower.
