I always love experimenting with cookie recipes. I usually create a base that I like and add different ingredients to make the cookies extra special. Today, I took one of my oatmeal cookie recipes and tweaked it by adding mini chocolate chips and dried cranberries! These cookies are not too sweet but they do have just enough sweetness with a bit of tart. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
