Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
For someone that doesn’t care too much for cranberries, I have them in almost every form in my household right now. I have them frozen, dried, and I have cranberry juice! So why not bake with them right?
As I have stated before, I am not a fan of cranberries but, now they are my new favorite fruit to bake with. I’m not sure what it is but when they are baked they taste so great, especially in a bread, muffin or cookie.
I absolutely enjoyed these cookies; they are a soft crunch with the bittersweet taste of cranberry. Although these cookies are great, and pretty much a healthy little snack; if you eat one maybe, but I knew I would fail at eating just one L…they wouldn’t last a day in my house if I didn’t give them away.
