Pistachio Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
I don't like cookie and I don't know why... but strangely, when it turns its shape into bars or slices , I could be easily attracted by them !
And this cookie bar is not an exception.. on the other hand, it attracts me more by pistachio..plus dried fruit which is not raisin like usually oatmeal cookie would have !
Anyway, the original recipe (by bakingbites) called for dried cherry which I substituted dried cranberry for it and I also reduced the brown sugar by 1-2 tbsp which gave the result not too sweet .. and consequently, I think it's great to be eaten along with milk ! Thanks Nicole for an excellent idea and the recipe!!
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup pistachios, toasted and roughly chopped
1/2 cup dried cherries
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8×8-inch baking pan (or the Bakers edge pan, which I did).
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, oats and brown sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in cooled, melted butter, egg and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Mixture should be wet, but may still be a bit crumbly. Stir in pistachios and cherries.
Scrape cookie dough into prepared pan and press down into an even layer.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until light golden brown and just set in the center (8×8-inch pan may require a couple of extra minutes). Cool on a wire rack completely before slicing into bars.
