Growing up, I was never really fond of oatmeal cookies. Especially ones with raisins in it but for some strange reason, I actually like this berry oatmeal cookie I made.
I was bored at home when I thought of making cookies. I was looking around our dining area and saw dried blueberries, cranberries and cherries. (My dad likes to snack on them)
So I decided go and experiment on an oatmeal cookie. At first, the cookie I made spread a little too much and was a little bit too salty (which is what is photographed above) so I tweaked my recipe a bit. I added a bit more flour and put a handful or two of chocolate chips to balance it out and came out withba cookie I’m confident with. So here we go! The first official recipe on Magelle’s!
340g butter or margarine
3 cups plain flour
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 1/2tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups of dried fruits (cherry, blueberries, cranberries, or anything you want)
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1 tsp Vanilla
1. Cream together the butter/margarine and both sugars
2. Add the eggs, one byone and then add the rolled oats!
3. Put in all the dry ingredients and mix only until a few of the flour is seen
4. Add in dry fruits and chocolate chips. If you’re making this with an electric mixer, stop using the mixer at this point and mix with a spoon or spatula instead (this is to not overwork your dough)
5. Mix until it no flour is seen and berries and chocolate looks evenly distributed.
6. Bake in a 300 degree fahrenheit or 150 degree celsius oven for about 15-20 minutes
This recipe makes around 40 cookies! That’s a lot! So you can share with others! But you can easily cut this recipe on half!
You can also make this recipe with a bowl and spatula if you don’t have an electric mixer!
