Boy: Oh ! This is so nice. How many cookies did you bake?
They couldn't stop munching these warm yummy cookies while still cooling on the rack.
The addition of rolled oats gives slightly crisp on the outside yet soft in the center texture. Love the woody cinnamon fragrance too. I must say that these cookies are very addictive. Easy to bake as festive giveaway gifts for busy mom like me.

I reduced the sugar amount.
Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies
116g butter (softened)
60g light brown sugar
20g caster sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
95g all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
120g organic rolled oats
70g dried cranberries
60g chopped pecans
Allow butter to stand at room temperature.
Combine ingredients (B) in a medium bowl and set a set.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars with electric mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy. (approx. 3 minutes).
Add egg and vanilla extract beat on high for 1 minute.
Turn mixer to low speed and add flour mixture, mix until just combined.
Fold in all the ingredients (C) with a spatula and mix until just combined. Chill dough in the fridge for at least an hour. (I freeze the dough for about 10 - 15 minutes)
Preheat oven to 176°C and position the rack in the middle. *Note : The temperature of the oven may vary, do adjust accordingly.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a tablespoon measurement, scoop a round heap of dough on the prepared baking sheet and gently press to flatten top slightly if you wish to. Space the dough well apart about 1.5 inches between each cookie.
Bake for 12 mins or until edges are lightly browned but center is still soft and unset.
Cool slightly on the baking sheet (about 5 minutes) before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely. Store them in airtight container.
Happy that these healthy cookies were well received :)
Happy baking ! Enjoy !
