Oatmeal & Cranberry Cookies

These cookies are very moist with an addicting flavor.  Don´t gasp when you see how much sugar it has! (That´s probably why they´re so addicting.)

Makes approximately 3 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries (craisins)

In a medium bowl, cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.  In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture.  Mix in oats.  Mix in the cranberries.

Preheat the oven to 375° F (190° C).  Place parchment paper on the cookie sheets.  Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in a preheated oven.  Allow the cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
