This is the best cranberry oatmeal cookie I've ever tasted. Slightly crisp on the outside, but oh so chewy on the inside. I can't believe it hasn't been posted yet! It's from the Crisco site. Note: If you use old-fashioned oats, the cookies will come out crisper and less moist; If you use quick oats, the cookies will be chewier and more moist. Also, bake until cookies are *just* set, where the center of the cookie still looks a little wet.
