Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Jody Ayers


We love anything cranberry and these cookies are by far the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. They are quick, easy and a single recipe makes at least 4 dozen 2-3 inch cookies. They are perfect for the little helpers to assist with in the kitchen. They would also be great for cookie exchanges and I think Santa may even find a few on his plate this year.
