Cookies baked according to plan.
1 C flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
9 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C golden brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 C old-fashioned oats
1/2 C dried cranberries
1/2 C rough chopped pecans
1/2 C golden raisins (plumped in hot water)
Preheat the oven to 350. Combine the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. In another bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and the sugars. Cream for about 4-5 minutes, or until mixture has lightened up. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour and oats to the sugar mixture, and mix together until smooth. Add in the raisins, cranberries, pecans (or whatever else your heart desires!), mix until just incorporated. Drop in roughly 1 tablespoon sized balls - can be a little bigger if wanted. Should make roughly 30 cookies.
Put cookies in oven, one cookie pan at a time. I fit about 10 balls per pan, alternating rows of two and three in order to leave enough space. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown at the edges. Remove from oven, cool, eat.
