New England Jumbles

On Saturday we went to our local thrift store and I found two great cookbooks. One of them is entirely filled with cookie recipes! These cookies are adapted from a recipe I found in that book. If you're a big dried fruit and nut person, these are for you.
New England Jumbles
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1 1/3 c. flour
1 c. chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
3/4 c. walnuts, chopped
3/4 c. macadamia nuts, chopped
3/4 c. raw almonds, chopped
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. dried blueberries
1/2 c. dried apples, chopped

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg, vanilla, soda, cinnamon and salt.
Mix in flour.
Add the nuts and dried fruit. Mix well.
Pack dough into a cookie scoop and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet (it's a little tricky since there are so many chunks in the dough, but I just worked with them a little and they baked up just fine.) Bake at 375 F for 10-13 minutes.
These were a fun recipe to try. They reminded me a lot of trail a cookie!
