Oatmeal Cookies with Almonds and Mangoes

I did a version of my cranberry oatmeal cookies with almonds and apricots and my Turkish friends really liked them a lot.

For the May Mango event, I did a little tweaking in the recipe and added dried mangoes instead of apricots. Pistachios would also work. These are really good, give it a try...

The recipe is from William's and Sonoma Baking book, p. 120.

1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup of diced dried mangoes
1 cup of chopped almonds

Makes about 24 cookies

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix the dry ingredients and set aside.
Cream butter and sugars and once combined mix in the dry ingredients and then the oats.
Finally combine the almonds and mangoes.

Bake until brown on the edges, 12-15 minutes.

Enjoy!

i must say i've tried this recipe a few times now and my work colleagues ar emost greatful!

the first time i used fresh fruit and althugh more moist, the cookies were not as nice.

since then i have made numerous combos which include mango & cherry, mango & banana, mango & white chocolate, cherry & mango etc. all really good!

so thank you!

I'd like to try these without the almonds. Also, I should use quick-cooking oats instead of instant, right? Thanks. :D

I use rolled oats, not instant. Quick cooking oats are more processed, I would also avoid using that. They are also mushy in texture so I think it might change the cookie texture.
