Craisin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Craisin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
from the Market Pantry Quick Oats Container
makes about 3 dozen

1 Cup Butter, Softened (2 Sticks)
1 1/4 Cups Packed Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup White Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
3 Cups Quick Oats
1 Cup Raisins
1 Cup Dried Cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium size bowl, beat together the butter, brown and white sugar, and vanilla on medium speed.  Beat in eggs until light and fluffy.  In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.  Stir in oats and raisins.  Shape dough into 2-inch balls and place on a baking sheet two inches apart.  Bake for 16-18 minutes until edges are golden brown and centers look slightly soft. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy with a tall glass of milk.

I've always thought that oatmeal raisin cookies were the ugly step sister of chocolate chip cookies.  However, these craisin oatmeal raisin cookies will rival any chocolate chip cookie!  Also, they are awesome for breakfast.  Oatmeal!  Fruit!  You can't go wrong!
