Heidy's Cranberry & Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

Picture by Heidy Valdes

First off I would like to start by saying Happy Birthday Heidy!  In honour of her special day, I would like to share with you all one of her original recipes. 

Heidy is one of those friends that you consider family.  She is one of the most genuine people I have ever met, and I am really glad that she is apart of my life.  When she asked me if I wanted to use her recipe for my blog, I jumped at the chance!    One thing I really like about Heidy's cooking style is that even in something like cookies, she is sure to throw some healthy ingredients into the mix (i.e. rolled oats, cinnamon, honey, dried berries).  

- 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup raw, natural sugar or brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 cup dried blueberries
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium sized bowl combine rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cranberries, and blueberries, set aside. 

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy; beat in egg until blended.  Add vanilla and honey (if honey is thick melt first); mix well.  Add dry ingredients and mix until blended.

Shape into 1.5 inch (4 cm) balls and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.  Flatten with floured fork tines. 

Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Makes about 2 1/5 dozen.
