Good Morning America’s Christmas Cookie Contest drew a monsoon of e-mails, and letters from our viewers with family and original cookie recipes. The recipes ranged from gems that dated back six generations to one cookie recipe that actually had bread crubs in it.
Here is one of the finalists
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups quick cook oats
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1 package white chocolate chips
1. Cream butter and sugar.
2. Beat in each egg separately, beat well. Add vanilla. Beat.
3. Mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Mix with cream mixture.
4. Stir in cranberries, raisins and chips.
5. Drop by rounded teaspoon on cookie sheets. Bake at 375 F for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are lightly browned.
