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.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch

- 2/3 cup butter, softened

- In a bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
