This comes from a great blog called Whipped. I make the cookies a little smaller than she suggests in the recipe. Anyway you make them, they are delicious!
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
3/4 cups raisins
3/4 cups dried cranberries (or use 1 1/2 cups of regular raisins)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Whisk to combine well. In a separate bowl beat room temperature butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add room temperature eggs, one at a time, beating each until fully incorporated. Add vanilla and combine. Add the flour mixture little by little, mixing until fully incorporated. Use a large wooden spoon to mix in the oats and the raisins and cranberries.
Put the dough in the refrigerator while you prepare your baking sheets, lining each one with parchment paper. After about 10-15 minutes, remove the dough from the refrigerator and spoon out large scoops of dough making balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick. Place 6 balls on each pan, no more so they won’t be too close together. Lightly press each ball to make a disk that is about 1/2 inch thick.
Baking the cookies for 10-12 minutes, turning them half way through. When you remove them from the oven, the edges should be lightly brown and the inside should look uncooked. Leave the cookies on the hot pan for 10 minutes you take them out of the oven where they will continue to cook a bit firming up the center.
