Oatmeal Craisin Pecan Cookies. Chewy and not too sweet. All yummy goodness.
Oatmeal Craisin Pecan Cookies
My husband LOVES oatmeal cookies. He asks for them often. I like them with dried cranberries or dried cherries. Oatmeal Craisin Pecan Cookies are gooood! The oatmeal gives them a crunchiness, craisins make them chewy, and the pecans add a nuttiness. If you need your cookies to be gluten free (as I do), substitute Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free One-to-One Baking Flour (affiliate link) for regular wheat flour, and use certified gluten-free oats (affiliate link).
These cookies take only a few minutes to mix up, and in 9 minutes, they are baked to perfection!
What You Need
Every kitchen should have the very best tools you can afford. Don’t skimp, and they will last a lifetime. For this recipe you’ll need a large bowl, electric mixer, measuring cups and spoons, and a cookie sheet. I suggest you also get yourself a silicone baking mat for easy cleanup.
I like jellyroll pans instead of flat (no side) cookie sheets—and my favorite is the Calphalon Jelly Roll Pan (affiliate link). It’s made of wonderful material. I think jelly roll pans are far more versatile. What do you think?

- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

- 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (For gluten free, use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-to-1 Baking Flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1 cup dried cranberries or dried tart cherries (“Craisins”)
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
- Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt.

- Drop by rounded teaspoons on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake at 350F degrees until golden brown, about 9-12 minutes.
I only bake one sheet at a time, which provides a more even temperature. I find it’s less likely that I will burn any cookies if I don’t stack the baking sheets in the oven.
