Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sometimes you just need to roll up your sleeves and bake cookies! When you find yourself staring at the back of a bag of the Trader Joes bag of chocolate chips wondering if you have everything add some oatmeal and cranberries to the mix. Then you can easily try these Oatmeal Cranberry  Chocolate Chip Cookies and your friends will think you became some master baker overnight (its our secret)
These are made with unsweetened cranberries which give these cookies an amazing tart flavor to balance the sweet from the chocolate chips. Almost all cranberries on the market are sweetened so if you want to try the tart flavor order a bag from Honestly Cranberry.   They are grown by the Brown family in Wisconsin on their fourth generation farm that has been commercially producing cranberries since 1873. Once you taste a "real" cranberry it is hard to go back.
