Oatmeal/Cherry/Walnut Cookies

1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (I actually add more, closer to 1 teaspoon)
2 eggs
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups flour
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup coarsly chopped walnuts (I use halves and quarters).

Heat oven to 375. Mix together all ingredients except oats, flour, cherries and walnuts. When creamy, add oats, flour, cherries and walnuts. Mix.

Place by spoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) onto cookie sheet and bake 10 min for soft cookies, 12-13 minutes for crisp cookies. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

You can put the dough in a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 pan and make bar cookies. Or halve the recipe and put them in an 8 x 8 pan.
