A crispy chewy cookie my mom used to make when I lived in Oregon. Dried cranberries are also divine in this.

  • Blend butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl sift flour, baking soda, and salt together. Stir into butter mixture. Stir in the oats. Fold in nuts and cranberries. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, spaced at least 2 inches apart. These cookies spread.

  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are crisp and the centers appear dry. Cool on wire racks and enjoy.

Having read the reviews and what the submitter Sarah says about dried cranberries also being good in this I think the recipe means to use fresh chopped cranberries. If you do then you get quite a lot of moisture from them and the cookies do spread. I have also used dried cranberries and then I add a splash or two of milk and they are fine. The mix with the fresh cranberries is more tart. Hope this helps. Read More

for the most part a good recipe but they were kind of blah--if i use this again i will definitely increase the brown sugar and maybe add white chocolate chips. Read More

I'm no baker and these cookies rock! I changed a few things... 1/2c whole wheat flour 1/2c all purpose (1c total). only used 1 stick butter (8T). 1T white sugar. bit of cinnamon nutmeg orange zest. used Pecans instead of Walnuts. Baked for 12 minutes (rotate 1/2 way) and they were chewy and delish! Read More

These cookies are pretty yummy but they require about 20 minutes at 350F. Mine didn't flatten either. Read More

I substituted left and right with white flour and a mix of craisins and raisins but it really quick and tasty. They didn't spread for me so I smashed them. Read More

This is the worst cookie recipe I have ever tasted in my entire life. They were dry bland and did not spread at all. I threw all of them away after I tried two of them. I recommend adding white sugar to the recipe to make them better. Really anything would be better than this!!! Read More

Well we did eat them. If you live in Texas just buy HEB Central Markets refrigerator version it is much better and cost just as much per cookie! And don't waste your money on Kroger's version they are not near as good as HEB's! Read More
