Another fabulous recipe taken from one of Joanne Fluke’s books: “Fudge Cupcake Murder”. Check out the books at www.murdershebaked.com

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F., rack in the middle position.
1 cup
butter, melted (2 sticks)
1 cup
brown sugar
1 cup
white sugar
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
eggs, beaten
1 tsp
1/4 tsp
1/8 tsp
2 cup
1 1/2 cup
sweetened dried cranberries (Craisins or another brand) ***
1 1/2 cup
rolled oats (uncooked oatmeal)

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Add sugars and let cool a bit. Add eggs, baking powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla. Add flour and mix. Then add the cranberries and oats and mix everything up. The dough will be quite stiff.
2 Drop by teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a sheet.
3 Bake at 350 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to rack until cool.

Yield: 5 to 6 dozen, depending on cookie size

Cooking Tips
*** If you can't find the cranberries where you live you can substitute any chopped dried fruit such as dates, apricots, peaches, etc.
These freeze well if you roll them in foil and put them in a freezer bag.
