Oatmeal-Cranberry Cookies

Today is my birthday, so I needed to come up with something to bring in to work. I have a ton of leftover cranberries from the Cranberry-Ginger Cake from Christmas, so I decided this would be a good way to use some up.

Oatmeal-Cranberry Cookies

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup regular oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cranberries, chopped and drained
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350º.

Place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Add flour, oats, and salt to egg mixture; beat well. Fold in cranberries.

Drop by level tablespoons, 1 1/2 inches apart, onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350º for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; let stand 2 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheet and let cool on wire rack.
