Halloween is just around the corner. Soon enough, Trick-or-Treaters will be lining up at your door. This year, instead of handing out candy chock full of high fructose corn syrup, use Allgood to make something good for them.
We love the idea of handing out homemade cookies and can’t think of something more delicious (and with an actual nutritional benefit!) than oatmeal and dried cherry cookies. Packaged in individual Halloween goodie bags, they’re the perfect, portable treat sure to make you the hottest house in town.
Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal and Dried Cherry Cookies
(Modified by Allgood Provisions)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup dark-brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 cups Allgood Provisions Utah Cherries
Eco Tip: Use Allgood Utah Cherries and organic ingredients when possible.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or using a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat to incorporate. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed to combine. Stir in the oats and dried cherries.
- Using a 2-ounce scoop, drop the dough onto prepared baking sheets, leaving 6 inches between cookies. Bake until edges are just turning brown, about 20 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
- Package in individual Halloween goodie bags and prepare to be the talk of the Trick-or-Treaters.
