Deanna's Story

I came up with this recipe when I looked through my baking drawer and saw small amounts of different cookie "add-ins". They travel well and were a big hit when I sent them to a soldier friend in Afghanistan.


1 c
margarine or butter, softened
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
2 large
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
quick cooking oats
2 c
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
baking powder
3/4 tsp
1/2 c
golden raisins
1/2 c
dried cranberries
1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c
chopped walnuts
1/2 c
coconut, flaked

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat margarine, sugars, eggs and vanilla for 5 minutes.
Combine dry ingredients, add slowly to creamed mixture. Stir in fruits, chips and nuts.
Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Cool on racks. Makes 4 1/2 dozen.
NOTES: You can use any favorite combination of chips, dried fruit, nuts and/or coconut in these cookies, as long as the total amount adds up to 2 1/2 cups.
