Lori's notes for this recipe:
This chewy oatmeal cookie, filled with sweet dried cranberries, coconut, and toasted pecans is 'berry nutty' indeed! I love a warm, chewy oatmeal cookie and spent many years trying to find just the right recipe. One day while gathering ingredients from my pantry for a batch of oatmeal cookies, I spied dried cranberries, coconut, and pecans left over from other baking projects and decided to use them up. My daughter named the cookie "Berry Nutty Oatmeal."

What a combo: sweet berries, crunchy nuts and scrummy oatmeal! Love.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together sugars, butter, and eggs.
Add vanilla and mix.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon and oats.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
Stir in coconut, cranberries and pecans.
Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. (Do not overbake!)
SUGGESTIONS: Only use REAL butter. Toasting the pecans adds a wonderful flavor but when time is short, I leave out this step and the cookies are still delicious!

These are very good cookies. I took mine out of the oven after 14 minutes and they were perfect. I nice twist on ordinary oatmeal cookies. Very tasty, moist and chewy. Thanks for the recipe.
