♥ Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookies ♥

1 cup regular oats
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup dried sour cherries
1 cup natural-style chunky peanut butter (such as Smucker's)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour


1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

2. Pulse oats in a food processor until finely ground. Add sugar and cherries; process until coarsely ground.

3. Combine peanut butter and butter in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at low speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt; beat until smooth. Add oat mixture; beat until blended. Stir in flour with a rubber spatula until well-blended; use your hands if necessary.

4. Drop dough by level 1/8-cupfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with a fork, leaving an imprint on top. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans; cool.

Makes 30 cookies.
