Cranberry and Oatmeal Spice Cookies Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 2 baking sheets.

Stir flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cloves in small bowl to blend. Set aside. Using electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large bowl until blended and smooth, about 1 minute. Mix in egg and vanilla. Mix in flour mixture. Stir in oatmeal and cranberries.

For each cookie, drop one tablespoonful of dough onto sheet, spacing 2 inch apart. Bake until tops and bottoms are lightly golden, rotating baking sheets, front to back and top to bottom halfway through baking to ensure even browning, about 13 to 15 minutes total baking time. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.

DO-AHEAD TIP: Cookies can be made up to 5 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

Number one cranberry oatmeal cookies
We have had all kinds of oatmeal cookies and loved them, but this cookie has to be the best oatmeal cookie we have ever ate. If you dont think you like cranberries because you tried them at Thanksgiving day when you were a kid, try them in these cookies as they give a whole new burst of flavor you never imagined. This recipe is the top cookie recipe for our family now.
