Yesterday's recipe

I wrote down the "tweaks" I made to the Everything Cookies and thought I'd post it for you.

Everything Cookies
adapted from PioneerWoman Cooks!

1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 1/4 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/3 cups quick oats
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups Cascadian Farms Organic Oats and Honey Granola
3/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup Cran-raisins
3/4 cup Golden Raisins
1 1/2 cups apricots

Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. Next whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and then add by the spoonful to the mixer. At this point you'll want to transfer the batter to a larger bowl. Add in oatmeal and granola. Fold in pecans and other ingredients. (I used my hands as the batter is so stiff I couldn't work it with a spoon or anything) With cookie scoop or two spoons, drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes. I made several that were "breakfast cookie" size and I baked those for about 13 minutes. This makes about 3-4 dozen cookies, so you can certainly halve the recipe.

Just found your blog...I'm in Atlanta too, and it's nice to find another southern "girlie-girl" on the net. Although, I do have to say Roll Tide! So that might mean we can't be friends.
Enjoyed the recipes, keep it up! Oh, and I totally LOVE The Pioneer Woman was awesome to see you making her friend's cookies :)
