Oatmeal Cookies with Mixed Berries; Gluten Free & Regular

These are the BEST oatmeal cookies ever!  I have played with the recipe over the course of a couple of years, and they are always a huge hit with my family.  Made with dried mixed berries (cranberries, blueberries and cherries) instead of raisins, they are full of flavor.  This recipe is for the gluten free version, but it could easily be converted back to the regular version by using an equal amount of all-purpose flour instead of the Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix, and regular old fashioned oats instead of the certified gluten free.  Enjoy!

Oatmeal Cookies with Mixed Berries

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 1/2 cups certified gluten free old fashioned oats (I like Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix (this is gluten free)
1 5 oz package of dried mixed berries, equals about 1 cup (I like Walmart's Great Value brand)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix well, all ingredients except oats, Baking Mix, and dried berries.  Stir in oats, Baking Mix, and dried berries.  Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheet (I used non-stick spray).  Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove from cookie sheet.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
