Harvest Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies - ButterYum

I was inspired to try this recipe after a friend raved about the Archer Farms Harvest Cookies that are sold at Target.  I did a quick google search and found this copycat recipe on Modern Day Moms.  I confess I've never tasted the Archer Farms version, but wow, this copycat version is fabulous.

adapted from Modern Day Moms

Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 3/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (I used Craisins)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Line 3 sheet pans with silicone liner or parchment paper.  
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.  
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until combined.  
  5. Add flour mixture; mix to combine.  
  6. Stir in oats and dried cranberries.  
  7. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared sheet pans and bake for 10-12 minutes.  
  8. Allow cookies to rest for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Note:

  • I use a #50 cookie scoop to portion the dough, which helps all the cookies turn out the exact same size.  
  • To prevent the cookies from spreading too much in the oven, chill the cookie dough before baking and be sure to bake on cool sheet pans.
