I adapted this recipe for my husband who adores oatmeal cookies. I added dried cranberries and chopped nuts to make them a little healthier. I used a scoop to make them today and I ended up with 43 cookies instead of 48. When I used a tablespoon, I ended up with 48 cookies.

Starting out with the oatmeal cookies is a plus right there, & then, adding raisins AND cranberries AND nuts! Well, that's just right up my alley, & since this cookie-lover likes bars, that's how I made my batch! And, yes, I HAD to use rounded cups of the fruit! Very, very NICE TASTING!
