~ Cran-apple Pecan Cookies ~ So good!

Cassie *


I had one Northern Spy apple left, so I took one of my other recipes and experimented. What a wonderful combination. Bites of apple, nuts and cranberries. The addition of oatmeal makes makes them a bit chewy. We loved them! I'll be freezing what's left for the holidays. That's if there are any left...LOL

How to Make ~ Cran-apple Pecan Cookies ~ So good!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil and sugars.

    In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda. Add this mixture to the creamed mixture a little at a time, until well blended.

    Fold in the oats, cranberries, nuts and apples.
  2. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls on an un-greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browning on edges. I took mine out when they looked a little under cooked in center, yet brown around edges as this leaves them a little chewy.
  3. Place cookies on cooling racks to finish cooling.
  4. Enjoy!
