Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

3/4 c butter, softened

3/4 c flour

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 c brown sugar, packed

3/4 c sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp water

2 tsp vanilla

3 c "quick" oatmeal

1 c dried cranberries (5 oz)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together, flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg, water, and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture. Stir in oatmeal. Stir in cranberries. Drop tablespoon globs onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 11 minutes (I used Airbake sheets w/o rims). Allow to rest 2 minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to wire rack to cool. Makes about 4 dozen cookies (use #50 disher).

For best results, especially if you like your cookies on the thicker side, chill cookie sheets/dough balls while waiting to bake.

These cookies are not hard and crunchy.
