Just plain old DELICIOUS!! I love the adaptation from the mix in a jar recipe. Worked perfectly. My yield was about 60 cookies though, not 36 as stated in this recipe, and the original mix in a jar recipe. No problems there - my hubby loves them!! I do too although they may not be the best 'breakfast choice' :o)

I only had fresh cranberries on hand so I chopped them up and they worked nicely. I did add 1/2 tsp orange extract to the dough since as another reviewer noted orange and cranberry go well together. It gave the cookie a nice subtle hint of orange without overpowering.
I too added about 1/4 cup of additional oatmeal and baked for about 16 minutes due to the moisture in the fresh cranberries. A really wonderful cookie bursting with flavor. Thanks for sharing.

This cookie was good but not quite what I had expected. I think next time I will add more Oats to the mixture and maybe some spices.

Good recipe, but they were lacking a bit in flavor for my tastes. I made the following modifications: used 2 cups oats instead of 1 cup, added 1/2 cup golden raisins to the 1 cup of cranberries, then soaked them in orange juice and rum overnight, added zest of one orange, added 1/2 tsp orange extract, added cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. Added a lot more depth of flavor to the cookies.

These are really great cookies. Easy to make. I didn't add nuts, we don't really like nuts in cookies and they were still very good. I got more cookies from the dough, 53, and I had to bake mine longer, 11 minutes.

I received the ingredients in a jar (minus the eggs, vanilla, and butter) for Christmas. I just made them and they are EXCELLENT. I had to find the recipe! The ingredients were so pretty in the jar that I plan to make some up and give them out as gifts.

Used applesauce for the butter and egg beaters, no nuts. I'm kind of lazy tonight so I poured the batter into a greased cake pan, baked, cooled then cut into bars. Absolutely delicious! Hubby who hates cranberries ate more of these than I could count and my little girl ran off with a handful too. Very good will be making again, thanks!
