Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

"I took a chewy Cape Cod version of an oatmeal cookie recipe and substituted cranberries for the raisins, and added a few extra spices. A favorite at my house and easy to make! (These are a very chunky cookie.)"

    Great cookie! I followed the easy instructions and the cookies came out perfect. I really loved the cranberries replacing the usual raisins. Thanks Wendy for a good recipe.

    Thanks for a great recipe. I had tried another oatmeal cookie and they seemed on the dry side. Yours are very good. Thanks

    While I would give this cookie a five star for taste, I found the dough a little stiff and dry and my cookies came out kinda hunky,didn't really spread the way I like. I thought I was very careful about measuring out the dry ingredients?? The middles were soft but I prefer a cookie that is soft and moist all over with a little crispiness to the edges.Mine only needed 10 mins. any longer and they would have been very dry. I left out the nuts and added white chocolate chips. Very tasty just did not have the texture I like. Thanks for the recipe.

    Yummy cookies and easy to make.


Hello! I am a thirty-nine year old mom with two children. I am originally from Xenia, Ohio where I have lived longer than anywhere, but have lived in many different places. Ohio is one of my favorite states...I love the different seasons here! I love to remodel and decorate homes, when I have the time, and of course, I'm very passionate about cooking!! There is a long line of great cooks in my family and I am trying to put together a cookbook for them, from recipes they've shared with me. I have no favorite cookbook...I love picking up new (even better...very old) ones from yard sales, Ebay, Amazon, or wherever I find a good book with a good deal! Love the Food Network and my favs to watch, when I have the time, are Giada De Lorentis & Tyler Florence.
