I love oatmeal raisin cookies and stumbled across several recipes with Oatmeal.craisins,and white chocolate.I've changed around abit and came up with this one,by adding whole wheat stone ground flour, cinnamon and molasses,made a totally different and delicious cookie. I've been reading here and there about eggs when added to baked goods need to be at room temp... so I decided to soak the cranberries with the eggs,vanilla and molasses to see what happens.The cranberries did absorb some of the vanilla and molasses flavoring and seemed more moist instead of dried up hard chewies.... and no brown sugar in this one as I've already added enough molasses for flavoring.. I only the small amount of pecans as the cookie had a lot going on already.. and just wanted to use them up...but I'm glad.. it was just enough
these turned out to be a lightly soft cookie with a little crispy edge..not to crispy or to soft
