Festive Cranberry Oat Cookies

These cookies that I adapted from another recipe call to mind ones my mother used to bake. Instead of stirring in raisins like she did, though, I add bright red cranberries for festive flair.

    For the price of these ingredients, the taste just wasn't what I expected.
