Cranberry Hootycreek Cookies

These cookies are pretty easy to fix, and they are highly addictive. They started out as a gift jar recipe that I've adapted to skip the jar part. They have dried cranberries, white chocolate, nuts...what's not to like!

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.
