oatmeal cherry cookies. so good, you are just going to have to make them to believe me. the librarian at work brought some in last week, and i begged her for the recipe. made my batch tonight, and they are already pretty much gone. ok, enough talk, here is the info.

oatmeal cherry cookies

1/2 lb. butter (two sticks)
1 lb. brown sugar (instead of trying to measure myself, i just bought a one pound bag at the store)
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups whole oats (not quick cook)
1/4 lb. dried tart cherries (unsweetened, and i used a half pound, because i wanted them to be extra cherry-y!)

sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. stir in oats and set aside. in large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. add eggs and vanilla. slowly add dry ingredients, mix until just combined. stir in cherries. the batter will be really stiff, and dough like. bake at 350 for 7 - 10 minutes, until golden. (my oven runs colder, so for me it was more like 12 to 14 minutes.) i got 32 pretty large cookies out of this, and like i said, im left with just a few... enjoy!

i hate gerbes. i couldn't find unsweetened cherries. i had to settle for some oatmeal scotchies. i will make this recipe as soon as i find a normal grocery store.
