Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350, rack in the middle position.

2 cups melted unsalted butter (4 sticks)
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs - beaten
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsps vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 cups flour ( I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour)
3 cups craisins
3 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Add sugars and let cool a bit. Add eggs, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add flour and mix. Then add cranberries and oats and mix everything up. The dough will be quite stiff.

Drop by teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a sheet.

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to rack until cool.

Yield: about 10 dozen depending on cookie size.

This dough freezes well if you roll it in foil and put the rolls in a freezer bag.

This is another recipe from the mystery series I'm reading. I added chocolate chips to half the batch and though I couldn't taste any myself, the rate at which they disappeared makes me confident they were very tasty.
