Hey Everyone hope you are excited as I am about the upcoming Holiday!!!

I love oatmeal! I love it in cakes and in cookies and even in soup. But my all time favorite treat is oatmeal cookies, this recipe takes the good old oatmeal cookie to the next level. Adding fuits as a filling to the oatmeal cookie dough not only make this a healthier dessert but it also makes it super yummy.
Soft warm juicy peaches, dotted with heavenly cherries topped with oatmeal cookies that are crunchy on top and chewy on the inside.
What could be better?you ask?
I have the answer.. A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of this beauty and you're in for a treat!

For the topping
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

For the filling
4 cups Sliced & Peeled Peaches
1 1/2 cups pitted Fresh or Frozen Bing Cherries
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°f .

Make the topping,
Beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add the vanilla and eggs and beat again.
In a bowl add the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt; Stir with a whisk.
Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed until blended.
Cover and chill 30 minutes.

Make the filling

Arrange the fruits in a pan coated with cooking spray.

Dollop mounds of chilled dough over peach mixture at even intervals.
