Best ever Oatmeal Cookies

On my cookie craving, I came across this recipe on the bigger bolder baking site and decided to try it. I substituted cranberries instead of raisins because that’s what I had on hand. These turned out delicious and they were absolutely spot on! I altered the measurement of sugar and it was just right.
