It's Foodie Friday here at Applejack Lane. I have been busy baking cookies, cookies, and more cookies for our Open House this weekend at our shop. White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies, Peanut Butter Kisses, Christmas Tree Spritz, Mexican Wedding Cookies, Raspberry Jam Thumbprints, Gingercrisps, and Hooty Creeks are all ready for my VIP ladies. Here is my recipe for Hooty Creeks-one of my customers' favorites.
1 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup dried cranberries chopped
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Cream the sugars and butter in a bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until the eggs disappear. Next, add the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the mixture. Mix until well blended. Stir in cranberries, chips, and pecans. The mixture will be stiff.
Using a one-inch cookie scoop, drop on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. I tend to bake for 9 minutes for a softer cookie. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 72 cookies.
And here is a platter of cookies ready to serve my VIP customers!
