- 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
- 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
- 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 5 eggs
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 7 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3 cups
Heat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, beat butter, applesauce, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
Add in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix well with a spoon. Add in oats and Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries and combine until all ingredients are mixed well.
Use a ¼ size measuring cup to scoop and drop cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, and gently press the cookies to slightly flatten them.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before transferring the cookies to a wire rack. Cool completely and serve.
*Chef tip: After step 4 place sheets in the refrigerator for 2-hours to overnight. This will help the cookies set up and prevents lots of spread on the baking sheet.
