Oatmeal Berry Cookies


Happy Sunday! Today, I present to you, Oatmeal Berry Cookies. It’s a simple cookie recipe that includes dried cranberries and raisins.  I added cranberries to this oatmeal raisin recipe because, why not? LOL. I considered adding dried cherries too but I think I’ll save that for a different cookie recipe (stay tuned).  There really wasn’t a need to add the cherries because these cookies are packed with raisins and cranberries.  I LOVE soft, chewy cookies and I’ve mastered that with this recipe. Also, they’re not too sweet and the berry oatmeal ratio is right on point. 

Most cookie recipes call for softened butter. I usually leave the butter out for about a hour or two so it can reach room temperature. Softened butter makes it easier to cream with the sugar. I also use unsalted butter so in order to have more control of the amount of salt that goes into the recipe. This is especially important if the recipe calls for additional salt. If you do use salted butter, it’s best to decrease the amount of salt. So, go ahead and grab a cup of coffee and enjoy some afternoon cookies on this cold, relaxing Sunday. Yum!
