*Note: Like a true Portland hippy, I buy mostly organic ingredients from my local co-op and occasionally Whole Foods Market. Cost can vary greatly depending on where you buy your food and what quality of food you buy. As a farmer’s daughter, I highly encourage you to support local farmers and sustainability efforts. Even if it is more expensive now, it pays off in the long run.

- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 stick (8 tbsp) butter, room temperature
- 1/2 c. sugar

Bob’s Red Mill makes excellent gluten free baking flours and oats if you want to make this recipe gluten free. If you have nut allergies, you can keep the crunch by omitting the oats and pecans and adding 1 cup granola instead. To make the dish vegan, use dairy free margarine instead of butter and egg substitute, such as ground flax seed mixed with water.
Preheat the oven to 350˙F.
Mix together the egg, vanilla extract, butter and sugar until well blended and smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, oats and salt until well blended.
Slowly the dry ingredients in to the butter and sugar mixture just until blended.
Carefully fold in the cranberries and pecans (or granola).
It may be tempting, but don’t eat all the dough right now.
Place spoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet far enough apart so they can expand properly and cook for 8-10 minutes until they’re crisp and brown on the outside. Enjoy the glorious wonderment that are fresh baked cookies.
