"Left out the raisins. Really good flavor. Made these to go on the Christmas goodie trays for neighbors. Yummy and pretty cookies! Hubby really loved them."
"I thought they were a good blend of somewhat healthy (oats, fresh cranberries, raisins) and chocolate chips. I cut down the sugar a little, and they were still yummy enough to disappear quickly."
"Very tasty. I did not have any raisins so added dried cranberries instead. A nice addition for those who do not like raisins. I noted that the amount of salt is not listed. I added 1/4 tsp of salt."
"I have been making these cookies for well over 10 years. They are my most requested and popular Christmas cookie. They are just a delicious burst of flavor. I'm making some now!!!"
"My husband and I make these cookies, minus the orange zest, plus walnuts. Delicious cookies for anytime. They are colorful for the holidays."
