Oatmeal Cookies With Raisins and Cranberries

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by dawnie2u

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.
