Initially I was going to back away from this recipe due to the number of ingredients but then I read them again and realized that I had almost all items on hand. The recipe came together so quickly and easily, even with the number of ingredients you must add in. I also put in a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon because I love that combination with the oatmeal. Had to leave out coconut and nuts due to preference/allergies of those who would be eating the cookies,but will include them when I make again for home. Flavor was delightful, the almond extract is really a plus with the vanilla. My only problem and reason why the recipe did not receive 5 stars was in the actual baking, the cookies spread quite a bit, ended up very flat. Next time I will chill dough for a few hours and see if results differ. Very moist and a rich flavor, unlike many cookies of this type that tend to be dry or cakey. Definitely recommend, especially if you are an oatmeal/cranberry fan like I am!!!

I love this recipe, and it has been a great success every time I have made these cookies. I made a few tiny changes; I used butter instead of margarine and left out the coconut. (I was making them for a work function and someone is allergic). Thanks for sharing!
