I Made Elmo's Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies and Now I'm Doing Better

Elmo has had a bad start to 2024. First, he simply took to Twitter/X and asked the basic question, "How is everyone doing?"

and was met with thousands of trauma-ridden comments. Elmo is a good friend for asking, but even the sweetest,

kindest puppet cannot handle all of that distress. Days later, he was directly targeted by comedian Larry David on live television. 

Because of all of this, Elmo has been on my mind lately. So when I came across his cookie recipe online, I knew I had to try it.

I planned to bring some good news back to my favorite furry muppet to cheer him up—and make myself a wonderful treat in the process.

This recipe requires the following ingredients: butter, dark brown sugar, eggs, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, granulated sugar,

baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract, whole fresh or frozen cranberries, rolled oats, and cream of tartar. 

Preheat your oven to 350°. Cream together the softened butter, dark brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the eggs and stir thoroughly. Pour in the cream of tartar, baking soda, and vanilla, then whisk in the oats.
