Cranberry Orange Spiced Sourdough Cookies from Just Making Noise

1 cup sourdough starter

1 cup butter, melted and cooled

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups oatmeal

1/4 cup raw honey

1/2 brown sugar

3/4 tsp sea salt

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp cloves

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

zest from 1 medium orange

1 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup dried cranberries, chopped

1 cup walnuts, chopped

In a medium bowl, mix together the starter and butter.

Add 1 cup of flour and the oatmeal, stirring to incorporate.

Continue adding flour until you have a thick dough.

Cover and allow to sour for 8 or more hours.

Preheat your oven to 375° F.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, eggs, sugar, vanilla, sea salt, cloves, cinnamon, orange zest, ginger, baking powder and baking soda.

Pour the mixture over the soured dough and mix (using your hands is easiest for this) until well incorporated.

Stir the cranberries and walnuts.

Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment paper lined baking sheets.

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden.

You may also spread the whole batter into a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes to get bars.

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
