This is our new favorite cookie. It has so many good ingredients in it that — despite the fact that the recipe begins with 1 1/2 cups of butter and 3 1/2 cups of sugar — it is practically HEALTH FOOD. I mean, come on…listen to this: cranberries, granola, dried apricots, and oatmeal. Hellooo? You could crumble these up, pour some milk over them, and call it breakfast.
Also, please note that this recipe makes a TON! So either divide the recipe or have some freezer bags handy.
Or eat them all yourself, and kiss your pants size goodbye.
