I needed a new holiday cookie, so I tweaked an old 4-H recipe. This updated oatmeal cookie with cranberries and nuts is my family’s all-time favorite. —Tammy Hoggatt, Omaha, Nebraska

"these were fantastic. One of the best cookies I ever ate (husband agrees). I left them in till they were golden and I thought they were over cooked, at first, but they were wonderful. They were really crispy but also had a little softer spots inside. I made them just as written, except I didn't chop the cranberries. I got about 40 and they were normal cookie size-not huge, not small. The sweetness was perfect. As one reviewer said, they are a bit crumbly when you try to portion them out and put them on the pan. I found if I just squeezed them together and left them in a ball, more or less, that they turned out that way. I just made them yesterday and we're already talking about making another batch (and that's even with me having Christmas goodies sitting around)."

"Very good! Soft on inside, crispy outside. So, I think we all agree 60 cookies is just not going to happen. I got 40 and they were on the small side. I forgot the pecans and the cookies were still wonderful but I know pecans will be better yet, so next time! I cut the white sugar in half and omitted salt."

"These are fabulous, but true enough, not even close to 60 cookies. They were a bit crumbly too to put together."

"Yum. Both crispy and chewy so it's the perfect combination. I really love the extra zing the dried cranberries added. They are easy to make, but I only got 48 small cookies. I used old-fashioned oats."

"A very good cookie. I used toasted walnuts instead of pecans, didn't have enough pecans. I'll try them next time. I just realized I forgot to chop the cranberries, l would not chop them they were great. I will make these again. Janet. VFE"
