Hootycreek Cookies

Yes… when my father first suggested this cookie recipe I had my reservations.  It sounds like some back water bug, or lizard, or crazy owl type creature?  But, don’t judge a book by its cover or a cookie by its name, because this is one good cookie!

Hootycreeks:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup rolled oat
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Directions: Preheat oven to 350.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt with a pastry blender or fork.  Cream butter until fluffy, then add sugars, eggs & vanilla.  Once all the wet ingredients are well incorporated, mix in flour mixture & oats, then cranberries, chocolate & nuts.  Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 8-10 min.

Simple and delicious – Enjoy! Oh and thanks for the recipe Dad!!
