I like a good chewy cookie, and these fill the bill. They also are a bit different to make, and a good change of pace cookie on a long day of baking.
Ingredients: 5/8 cup all-purpose flour; 1/2 cup rolled oats; 1/2 cup all-purpose flour; 1/2 teaspoon baking soda; 1/2 teaspoon salt; 1/3 cup brown sugar; 1/3 cup white sugar; 1/2 cup dried cranberries; 1/2 cup white chocolate chips; 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Layer these ingredients in a large jar, in the order listed.
Other ingredients: 1/2 cup softened butter; 1 egg; 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a cookie sheet. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together butter, egg, and vanilla until fluffy. Add the entire jar of ingredients, and mix together by hand until well blended. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes, then move to a plate.
