I still have a large amount of rolled oats sitting in my cabinet left over from the fudge oatmeal bar recipe.
Ingredients (makes 48 3-inch cookies, I halved the recipe)
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
a pinch cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1/4 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup dried sour cherries
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line or grease two cookie sheets. Mix the first group of ingredients in a bowl, then mix the second group of ingredients in a separate, larger bowl until well blended. Stir in the flour mixture. Finally stir in the chocolate chips, the oats and the cherries. Shape the dough into generous 1 1/2 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on the baking trays. Flatten into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Bake one trat at a time until lightly browned (12-14 minutes). Cool on rack.
