These cookies are simply delicious! You can mix and match the dried fruit (depending what is in your cupboard).  With this batch, i didn't have any nuts so i just didn't put them in.
Makes about 14 cookies

1 ½ cups rolled oats 1 cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
125g butter, at room temperature

½ cup packed dark brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 Tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
½ cup raisins
½ cup cranberries

Preheat oven to 180`C
Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream butter and both sugars until fluffy and smooth. Add egg, milk and vanilla and blend until smooth. Stir in the oat mixture, walnuts, raisins, cranberries.
Using either an ice cream scoop or soup spoon, get a generous amount of dough and place about 10cm apart on the baking tray.
Bake until the edges of the cookies are golden brown, about 15 minutes. (Do not overbake.) Remove cookies from oven and let them set for 1 minute. Using a spatula, transfer cookies to a rack and let cool.

To prevent hardening, wrap each one individually in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to three days.
