I have decided to start posting my recipes here from time to time. For many reasons. I once made a "homemade" cookbook for family and friends. Filled with their favorite recipes and stories that they had shared. A friend typed up all of the pages (a time before computers were so popular) and I bound them all in folders and gave them to everyone. If I were to ever make a cookbook again, I would want it filled with stories and pictures along with great recipes.....much like the stories and pictures I am putting on this blog. And isn't that what country living is all about??? Great home recipes? I have a recipe blog.....but I don't pay as much attention to it as I do my embroidery blog and this blog. I am keeping "My Country Kitchen" blog and will store the recipes there for an easy way for everyone to find a certain one. But this gives everyone who visits here a chance to catch a recipe now and then. I have been in a "cranberry mood" lately....every thing with cranberries sounds so good. I made this recipe yesterday. It is in the Oct/Nov 2009 issue of Taste Of Home magazine on page 15. These cookies are so flavorful! So here is the recipe....
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 6oz package dried cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
( I added 2/3 cup chopped walnuts)
Preheat oven to 375.F . Mix butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in cranberries, white chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.( I sprinkled the tops with granulated sugar.) Bake for 10 -12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Enjoy!
