Outrageous Chocolate Chip & Cranberry Raisin Cookies 

Yield: 80 + cookies depending on size

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 package dark chocolate chips 
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or raisins (or both combined)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3-5 drops Young Living orange essential oil (optional)
  1. First I like to soften the dried cranberries and raisins by soft boiling them in a small saucepan with 1/4 cup water for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Cream butter and white sugar in a mixing bowl. Then continue to cream in peanut butter, then the eggs.
  3. Next add the dry ingredients. I prefer to combine all of my dry ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix them together before adding to the mixing bowl. This ensures everything gets mixed in evenly.
  4. Last, add the vanilla, chocolate chips, and cranberries/ raisins
  5. optionally add 3-5 drops orange essential oil for a sweeter citrus(y) taste. Yum.
  6. Scoop small spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes at 350°.
This recipe yields close to 100 small/ medium cookies!  I typically half the ingredients recipe and still have about 50-60 cookies depending on the size I make them.
I choose to add less sugar to this recipe so I like that the orange essential oil adds a light natural sweetness.
