One thing that took getting used to when I moved over here to the UK was the fact that they call cookies biscuits . . . whereas biscuits to me had always been a type of quick bread not dissimilar to a scone in many ways. I still struggle with calling cookies biscuits . . . but biscuit or cookie . . . no matter the name, the fact remains that they are much beloved by most people.
I can't think of a glass of milk or a hot drink that doesn't taste better when accompanied with a good cookie! I have my favourites as I am sure you also do. I've never met a cookie that I didn't like! Peanut butter are right up near the top of the list, but I have to confess . . . of all my favourite cookies, oatmeal are the number one in my books!
These cookies/biscuits here today have it all . . . nutty oats, wholesome whole wheat flour, a bit of spiciness from the cinnamon and scads of dried berries . . . cherries, blueberries, cranberries . . . for just the right touch of sweetness!
The recipe makes only fifteen large cookies . . . which may not sound like a lot and it isn't, but once you taste how good these are, you will be glad there aren't more because you will be sorely tempted to scarf down the lot! They are very moreish.
Very moreish indeed, but don't hold that against them. These are bound to become favourites in your home also. If you don't have dried blueberries or cherries or cranberries . . . just use what you do have, even chopped dried apple or apricots or dates are good, as well as sultanas. This cookie is guaranteed to become a firm family favourite.
