    * Brown Sugar, .33 cup, packed (remove)
    * Oatmeal, uncooked, Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, .5 cup dry, 60 gram(s) (remove)
    * Baking Soda, .5 tsp (remove)
    * *Flour, white, .75 cup (remove)
    * Cinnamon, ground, .5 tsp (remove)

Directions

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment.
-In bowl of stand mixer, combine butter and brown sugar and beat on medium high until light and fluffy in texture and color, about 3 minutes, while you gather other ingredients.
-In large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, stirring to combine.
-To butter and sugar add eggs, one at a time, beating to combine well after each addition, then add vanilla.
-Stop mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl and turn back on lowest setting.
-Add oatmeal mixture, then cranberries and chopped almonds, beating just until barely combined.
-Remove bowl from stand mixer and bring over to baking sheets.
-Best way to do this is with your fingers (albeit messy) - pick up loose balls of dough about a tablespoon each. Place on cookie sheet. Or you can use the drop cookie method.
-Place in preheated oven and bake for exactly 10 minutes.
-Remove from oven, cookies will be slightly golden around edges and middles look a bit underdone.
-Let cool 5 minutes on cookies sheets and then place on wire racks to cool completely before serving

***Using about a tablespoon of dough per cookie should yield 18 cookies.
