Cranberry Pecan Cookies

Since this was the first real post on this blog, I thought I'd post the recipe that I most recently made. They are Cranberry Pecan Cookies, and they are delicious. A friend shared this recipe with me a few years ago and they have been a favorite ever since. They are really delicious, the combination of ingredients just goes really well together.

Cranberry Pecan Cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened

1 1/3 c. sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 c + 4T all purpose flour

1 c. quick cooking oats

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. dried cranberries

2/3 c. white chocolate chips

1 c. chopped pecans

1 tsp. lemon zest

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, & lemon zest; mix well. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, & salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Stir in cranberries, white chocolate chips, and pecans. Roll a rounded tablespoonful of dough into a ball. Place onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and edges begin to brown. Cool 2 minutes before moving to wire racks. Makes about 7 doz.

Note, if you make BIG cookies (I use the big Pampered Chef Scoop) then you would get... maybe 3 dozen out of it. I like big cookies.. mmmm... cookies...
