I got this cookie recipe from a friend in Pa but she had no idea where the strange name came from. I just Googled it and sure enough it's out there. http://www.ask.com/web?l=dis&o=13992&qsrc=2873&q=hootycreeks

Cranberry Hootycreeks
Makes 18 cookies

1 stick butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup oats
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugars until fluffy.
3. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well.
4. In a larger bowl, combine flours, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cranberries, white chocolate chips, and pecans.
5. Add creamed mixture to dry ingredients and mix by hand.
6. Drop by large spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet; shape into balls and flatten just slightly.
7. Bake until edges start to brown.* (Do not overbake!)

* NOTE: The original recipe says to bake for 8 to 10 minutes. However, I made the cookies a bit bigger and only got 14, so they baked for about 13 – 14 minutes.

NOTE: The original recipe calls for just white flour, but I prefer the taste of whole wheat in many cookies. For cookies with only white flour use 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons.
