How to make Easy Apple Oatmeal Cookies

I was really craving oatmeal cookies, but I didn't have oats, so I used 2 packets of instant oatmeal and they ended up tasting so delicious.  The apple cinnamon flavor adds a different dimension to the craisins and chocolate in the cookie. 

    Sift flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl.  Using an electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in a large bowl until smooth.  Beat in egg and add the vanilla.  Add the flour mixture, instant oatmeal, chocolate chips, pecans and craisins.
    Place tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart.  Bake at 350°F, for about 16 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. 
    Cool for about 5 minutes, if you can wait that long, and enjoy!
