    Best right out of oven

    R. LaBree from Minneapolis

    These are great right out of the oven, and even taste good after a week. I added macadamia nuts in a second batch for a bit more crunch!

    Easy and wonderful

    Amanda Keller from Richland Center, WI

    Made these with my high school home ec. class for a cookie exchange fund raiser; they were super easy! Unfortunately, they looked so good, the school lunch ladies served them for lunch instead!!! At least I know I can make more quick.

    Solves the Problem

    Eileen Dunne from Edison, NJ

    What a great recipe!! Have a son that is allergic to raisins so I made this recipe with the cranberries and was he happy as was the rest of the family. The cranberries give that added color.

    Baaam

    Belinda Brothers-McKinnon from SAINT JOHN, NB

    We really enjoyed these cookies, someone had to bright idea to add chopped walnuts and slivered almonds, so we did half and half. They were amazing, and those on diets felt justified, because of the cranberries which everyone knows are wholesome and natural and really good for you. :)

    I made these cookies twice in 1 week because everyone at my job loved them. The recipe was so easy and you can really add whatever you like to the cookie. I added pecans with the cranberries and white chocolate chips. They were awesome!!!

    Michelle Earnshaw from Ramona, CA

    I can't wait to try these! It made me think that you could use other dried fruits, and semi-sweet, or milk chocolate morsels, to make different variations!
