Cranberry Almond Cookie Recipe February 28, 2010

Cranberry Almond Cookies

This is a great way to use the bourbon soaked cranberries from my last post.  This is one of my most requested recipes.

1 cup flour                                                                              2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup whole wheat flour                                                     1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt                                                                  1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon                                                          3 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon baking powder                                                  2 large eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon baking soda                                                       3 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup dried cranberries                                                          1 cup chopped almonds

Sift together flours, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside

Beat butter with both sugars in a mixer on high until light and fluffy

Add vanilla, milk, and eggs and mix well

Add in cranberries and almonds until just combined

Add oats until just combined

Place dough in fridge for a couple of hours or overnight

Heat oven to 350

Line several baking pans with parchment paper and set aside

With damp hands scoop out 2 tablespoons of dough and shape into a ball; place on the prepared sheets; repeat with remaining dough and space balls 2 inches apart; press down to flatten

Bake cookies for 14 to 16 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through the baking

Place on wire rack to cool

Store in an airtight container for a week, or freeze for longer storage
