Crais-mazing Cookies

No Comments// Posted in Uncategorized by on 09.13.10.

This is an amazing cookie recipe that I absolutely love. I am putting it here so I can send the link to people when they ask for it.

1 cup flour
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp butter, around room temperature
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
¼ cup applesauce
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Craisins

Parchment Paper
Stand Mixer (or Hand Mixer plus Large Mixing Bowl)
2 Cookie Sheets
Measuring Cups
Measuring Spoons
Medium Mixing Bowl
Large Spoon
Oven (duh)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
3. In stand mixer or large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
4. Beat in the egg. Once combined, add applesauce and vanilla.
5. Working by hand, stir in the flour and oat mix until just combined and no white streaks remain.
6. Stir in Craisins.
7. Drop tablespoonfuls on to sheet.
8. Bake about 11-13 minutes. Cookies will be a bit darker brown at edges.

• Parchment paper is amazing. If you’ve never used it before, you will use it forever and ever once you start. If you cannot find or do not have parchment paper, you can just use non-stick spray on a cookie sheet, but if you do that you are compromising the amazingness of this recipe and I do not take responsibility if it isn’t good.

• You can substitute a bunch of things for the Craisins, or mix and match add-ins! Raisins or other dried fruit work fine. Chocolate chips are great, and even better if you add some coconut. It’s a very versatile recipe.
