Studding chewy oatmeal cookies with cranberries gives them a bit of bright color and a slight tang. Any dried fruit can be substituted.

    These are the very best cookies!!! My family loves them. I make a batch with dried apricots as well. Adding a few chocolate chips or white chocolate chips is also a good variation. I use Chinese All Spice instead of cinnamon, Yummy!! Enoy!!

    Can I add white chocolate chips to this recipe? If so, how many?

    Baked these cookies with great trepidation because they sounded healthy -- oatmeal, cranberries. These are D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S. I will eat one of these kind of like a pick-me-up bar. They stay tender and it's hard to eat just one. I will definitely make these again! Thanks Martha -- sorry I doubted you. Now, if only you would respond to questions presented by your followers on this website. I've seen folks ask question only to find them waiting...

    Just baked these cookies and last batch is still in the oven. The house smells divine and the cookies are sooo delicious and perfect. I used quick oats and reduced the baking time to 14-15 mins only. This recipe is a keeper. The cookies are firm enough on the outside and soft on the inside. I found all the ingredients just went so well together and not oversweet at all. I totally recommend to give it a try if you are still thinking.

    This is one of my oldest and most favorite cookie recipes, and I still have this special holiday cookie issue on my bookshelf! It's simple but so good, and I like the dried cranberries with the oatmeal over more typical raisins.

    This is definitely my boyfriend's FAVORITE cookie recipe now! The cranberries REALLY make the oatmeal cookie amazing :) The only difference probably is that I didn't "smoosh" mine down as much, so they were slightly thicker. I also found that 12 minutes was the magic baking number when it came to baking time. :)

    Long story short...I love an all natural cranberry orange instant oatmeal from target. So I zested an orange and used the juice to soak the cranberries before I began step 1. I then followed the recipe (upping the salt and cinnamon to 1 teaspoon and using dark brown sugar). Before adding the cranberries I drained them well then added them with the zest. They came out amazing!!! A great rich flavor with surprising tart berries and rich warm winter scents. Perfect. Perfect Perfect.
