The Oatmeal Cookies Were a Hit

Last night in my baking frenzy I used a recipe under the lid of the box of Oatmeal. It called for raisins, but I had little snack boxes of dried mixed fruit on a shelf in the pantry, so I used those. Oh my! Delicious!

Selena’s Oatmeal Cookies

(Makes about 2 dozen)

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal
  • 2 boxes (1.25 oz each) of dried mixed fruit

Heat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.

Beat together butter and sugars until creamy.
