Cran-ocolate, I Mean, Choc-anberry...Something...Oatmeal Cookies

Smaku's Super Cookie
Originally uploaded by Smaku.

Tonight, I invented a recipe. Well, not really, but the results were worth sharing. The cranberries add a nice aftertaste, methinks. Sorry if you find my measurements confusing... 0.5 is so much easier to understand than 1/2. Also, for some reason the original recipe said to use 4 tblsp of milk, but 0.25 cup is so much easier to measure. And thanks to these friends for inspiring me to blog recipes.

Mix together in this order:
0.5 cup butter
0.5 cup oil
1.5 cups raw sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp (or more :D) vanilla
0.25 cup milk
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 cups rolled oats
1.5 cups chocolate chips
1.5 cups dried cranberries

Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes. My cookies didn't look all that dark, but they are supposed to be "light brown" when they get out of the oven.
