the final cookie

Ally, here.

Here it is folks, the final cookie from the epic 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. And it's a good one to end on, my friends.

The final cookie is an oatmeal cookie. But this is not your run of the mill oatmeal cookie. It's full of random ingredients that I never would have thought would taste appetizing together. But my, oh my, did they taste good. Cinnamon, honey, coconut, and dried cranberries. Yum. You'll never eat an ordinary oatmeal cookie again.

So take a deep breath and prepare yourself for Guy Fieri's crazy oatmeal cookies.

2 cups flour (I used whole wheat, as always)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup dried cranberries
2 cups quick oats
1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped (I left this out)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda, powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with a mixer. Mix in honey and vanilla until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Mix in coconut, cranberries, oats, and rosemary. Fold dry ingredients into the butter mixture.

Form into balls and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 13 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie racks.

You're going to love it!

  1. I've really enjoyed browsing through all of your cookie posts. The two of you did a great job. I hope the completion of the final cookie doesn't mean your blog is going to sleep. That would be a shame. I hope the two of you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Thanks, Mary! We're certainly not finished blogging! We just might stay away from cookies for a bit...
