What were you doing at that time of day? One of my goals this year was to participate in an online scrapbook class. Well, I didn't do so well in doing any scrapbooking this year but I was bound and determined to finish something, doggone it! So today, I participated in a special 12.12.12 all-day online event with Big Picture Scrapbooking and the instructor challenged us to do something special today at 12:12 pm. I didn't have anything planned, but I spontaneously decided to bake these Cranberry Hootycreeks that my friend Steph shared with us last week at our homeschool Christmas party. So I took these babies out (as it turned out) right at 12:12 pm this afternoon and we had them for lunch.


Want the recipe? Thought you might ask, so here it is:

Cranberry Hootycreeks

1/2 cup softened butter

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup plus 2 Tb. all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper (I like to use my dark-metal non-stick cookie sheets--they worked great without greasing or parchment).

In a medium bowl, beat together the softened butter, egg, and vanilla until fluffy. Add the dry ingredients, and mix together by hand until well blended. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges start to brown. Cool on baking sheets, or remove to cool on wire racks.

Thanks, Steph! The fam loved them! Enjoy!


I'll get the PDF up soon...something is not working over on this end. Thanks for your patience!
