These cookies are perfect for Rosh Hashanah – the pomegranate seeds burst in your mouth and provide a sweet start to your new year. Bake them for friends, family, or just yourself. Enjoy!!!
½ cup butter, room temperature
½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chunks (semi-sweet or dark; about 4 oz chopped chocolate/4 sqaures of baking chocolate)
1 cup pomegranate arils (about 1 pomegranate)
This cookie base would be perfect for any additions: try just chocolate, raisins, or chopped pretzels, skor bits, and chocolate for a Twix cookie!
