Cherry Apricot Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies
Dried cherries, dried apricots, chocolate chunks, all in thick, chewy oatmeal cookies. They’re so good, plus because they have oats you can pretend they’re healthy and eat them for breakfast! Now that’s what I call a good cookie 🙂
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups old fashioned oats
2/3 cups dried cherries
2/3 cups dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F.
Cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
In separate bowl mix together all dry ingredients, including oats. Mix, on medium-high speed into wet batter.
With a spoon, mix in dried fruit and chocolate chips.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack.
