Cranberry Hootycreeks

These are my all-time favorite cookies!  Buttery, fruity, nutty and fabulous right out of the oven.  They always turn out perfect and you can even make a gift jar out of the mix.  How cool is that?

Cranberry Hootycreeks
yield 30

5/8 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (note: flour is divided to make separate layers in the jar. If you are not making a Gift-in-a-jar, just combine the two flour measurements)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1.  Layer ingredients if making in a 1 quart jar and include these instructions:  Preheat oven 350 degrees.  In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter, 1 egg and tsp. vanilla.  Add entire jar to the mix.  Stir until well blended.  Drop by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.

1.  If NOT making a gift in a jar, make like normal cookies.  In large bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and sugars together.   Add 1 egg.  Add 1 tsp. vanilla extract.
2.  In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add to the wet ingredients and mix.
3.  Fold in pecans, white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.  Drop by 1 tablespoon on to cookie sheet.
4.  Bake 8-10 minutes.  Cool.
