Back to Basics – Oatmeal Craisins Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-12 minutes
Makes approximately 2 dozen

For Oatmeal Craisin Cookies you will need:

1½ cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 stick butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups rolled or quick-cooking oats
1 cup craisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchment paper. Combine the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl.

Place the brown sugar and butter in the bowl of stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in oats and craisins until blended.

Drop the dough by rounded spoonfuls on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten the dough slightly with a fork. Bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then transfer to wire racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.

*These cookies will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
