No, I have NO idea why they are called Hootycreeks. But it rolls off the tongue a bit better than "White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pecans and dried Cranberries."

2 1/3 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 t baking soda
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup butter
2t vanilla
1 cup pecans
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips

1.Mix the wet. Mix the dry. Combine!
2. Form into balls. Don't bother flattening them. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

This is a dry recipe. The cookies stay nice and rounded that way. If you need more wetness, just melt a bit more butter and add it in. Also, these are great right out of the freezer. Refreshing, even. I just put them into a big Ziploc once they are cool, and we eat them one by one out of the bag.

I was determined all day yesterday to make these cookies. So, at 9, although exhausted from a hard day's work and running around, I set out to whip them up. And as soon as I sunk my teeth into their ooey gooey goodness, I knew it was worth the effort! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
