Gourmet Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Cookies
Gourmet Cookie Recipe
Cranberry Walnut Cookies
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Rum Extract
6 oz. / 1 Cup Dried Cranberries
2 Eggs Well Beaten
Soak Cranberries in above mixture at room temperature for 30 minutes.
In a separate bowl combine:
2 ½ Sticks Real Butter (room temp – do not melt)
1 ½ Cups Brown Sugar
2 ½ Teaspoons Cinnamon
½ Teaspoon Ginger
½ Teaspoon Nutmeg
Blend well with mixer. Add:
1 ½ Cup Self-Rising Flour (if you use all purpose, also add 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda)
3 Cups Old Fashion Oatmeal (not instant)
1 ½ Cups Chopped Walnuts
Egg/Cranberry Mixture from Above
Stir in with wooden / heavy spoon until well blended.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a greased cookie sheet, place golf ball sized dough balls and then press down to form a “patty.” Bake for 12-15 minutes (or until edges are dark golden brown). Remove from the oven and let cool ON THE COOKIE SHEET (the heat from the sheet will finish cooking the middle).
Melt white chocolate chips on the stove or in the microwave. Using a spoon, spread melted chocolate on the bottom of the cookies then place chocolate side down on waxed paper. Drizzle zig-zags over the top and let cool.
Yields 2 ½ dozen large cookies OR 1 dozen colossal sized cookies.

HINT: The hotter the pepper the hotter the pickle! A word of caution... don't make 'em too hot! Try adding a hot pepper or 2 in the brine while boiling and use ornamental peppers for the jar!
