Review This Recipe
Who would have thought?...yum!
I wouldn't have ever guessed that the nestle Crunch bars would have made such a good combination with the oatmeal and cranberries. My grandfather's favorite type of cookie is an oatmeal cookie, but he does not like cookies that are overly sweet. I made these cookies just to try them out and decided to offer him a taste, and he loved them! the children whom I babysit for love them too. So, they appeal to many people...those who like sweet cookies and those who like cookies that aren't too sweet. These are just perfect cookies for anyone! Thanks for another awesome recipe!
