Very yummy! I used raisins instead of the dried cranberries and regular butter and everyone loved them!

I used regular butter and old fashioned oats instead of quick oats. I like old fashioned better for baking. I also added chocolate chips. Very nice taste - turned out chewy, just the way I like them. A great fall recipe!

These were amazing! I used regular butter, added some raisins and mini chocolate chips. Very chewy, too.

2nd best Oatmeal cookie I have ever made. I make per the recipe with one change, I used pecans. My husband ate 5 of them and insisted I send some to our two army kids. LOL, who did he think I was baking them for. Truely great recipe, cant wait to try it again with some different fruit combos.

My family loves oatmeal cookies & I wanted a cookie to serve to B&B guests with hot apple cider when they arrived on a cool autumn day, so I tried this one. It is one of the best cookies recipes I have every tried! Our guests said that they were the best oatmeal cookies they had ever had & asked for the recipe! I especialy like the apples & cranberries together. I didn't have any reduced fat butter, so I used about 1/2 reg butter (all I had) & the rest non hydrogenated soft margerine.Because my husband watches his cholesterol, I used 1/4c egg subtitute instead of the egg & skim milk. I also cooked them in a convection oven at 350 for 12min & they turned out great! It made 51 cookies.
