Daddy's Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

I've done a few Oatmeal Cookie Recipes, but this one is my Daddy's favorite! He had me make 3 dozen for his small office party, and he complained that he didn't even have one left to bring home :-)

1 1/2 c oatmeal
1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 c Craisins (dried cranberries)

6 T butter, softened
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl and stir.
Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and beat til combined. Add dry ingredients and stir.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until batter is firm.
Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop dough by rounded tsp onto cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake at 350 for 12-16 minutes or until edges are golden brown.


  1. I'll have to try making a batch of your DOCCs..Have you ever tried soaking your craisins/raisins/dried cherries in warm rum or orange mariner as well as add 2 teaspoons (or 1 Tablespoon) of pure vanilla extract into the Oatmeal cookies batter just to make people smile..just sayin

    1. Thanks Tom!
      My Dad likes the chewiness and flavor of the craisins in these cookies. However, yes, I have soaked the dried fruits before. Does make a difference doesn't it?!?!? :-)

  2. i'm all about the craisins in my oatmeal cookies!
