If you’ve ever had the Harvest Cookies from Archer Farms (found in Target bakery), you will know exactly what recipe this is.
These cookies are amazing, simply put. There is something about the oats & the cranberries…not forgetting the walnuts, that just makes the perfect combination.
The closest recipe I have found that comes pretty darn close to those cookies would be the one from the Food Network website.
The trick is to not over-bake. These cookies should be chewy and soft.
The recipe is fairly simple. I hope you enjoy.
Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Cookies
3/4 cup butter or butter shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped walnuts

2. BEAT butter/shortening, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl at medium speed of electric mixer until blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat into shortening mixture until smooth. Stir in oats, dried cranberries and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
