The Best Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

This is my adaptation of my cyber friend Molly's recipe. My DH gives these a big thumbs up and that says a lot.

Cream together:
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla

Add the following ingredients to the cream mixture:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups oat (old fashioned works best)
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup dries cranberries

Spoon onto lightly greased or parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven. Depending on the size of your scoop, the average size cookie needs to bake for about 7 to 9 minutes.

**Remove from oven when edges are slightly brown and the middle of the cookie does not look quite done. When to remove it from the oven will be the deciding factor on having a good or bad cookie.
