oatmeal-cranberry cookies!

Here is a recipe (originally from the Mrs. Fields cookbook I think) that I have been adapting and working on for a long time and, guys, I am not kidding when I say it's the only oatmeal cookie recipe you'll need again. I made a bunch today and they turned out perfectly so I decided it was time to share it!

My computer and camera are acting up, but for now here is the


1 c. + 2 T packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. Smart Balance (best if at room temperature)
1/4 c. applesauce
1 T maple syrup (or pancake syrup, or liquid sweetener of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla

2 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. oats
1/2 c. or more dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 325 F.

In large bowl, mix sugars and margarine, then beat in syrup, vanilla, and applesauce until creamy. Add the dry ingredients (up through cinnamon). Stir in the oats and cranberries and anything else you'd like, until completely mixed.

Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20-22 minutes.

Notes: You can mix the dry ingredients separately in another bowl before adding to the wet, if you'd like; I just usually skip that step.
You can add other things than cranberries - raisins, obviously, but I think that pecans or walnuts would also go nicely in this recipe, if you so desire.

When my computer decides to cooperate, I'll post pics, because I know I'm always more inclined to try a recipe when there's a photo! :)
