2 cups chopped candy slices
(we used only the red and green slices)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup firmly packed brown-sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 TBSP milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
Slice candy fruit to bite size pieces and toss with 1/4 cup of flour. Set aside.
Cream butter at medium speed with an electric mixer, gradually add sugars. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla; beat well.
In a medium bowl combine 2 cups flour, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat well. Stir in candy and oats.
Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on wire rack.
Did you know if you put your cookie dough in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes before baking it will keep your cookies from going flat when baking? Allowing the butter to chill before baking helps to prevent it from melting too fast and create a flat cookie!
