Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I like the holidays, but don't you guys think it becomes way too stressful? Buying the perfect gift, decorating the house, and semester exams. Ugh, don't even get me started about exams! Mine isn't until After winter break, so instead of relaxing I have to study! Yuck. At least I get more time to study, though, right?
Do you see these cookies here? These aren't any old cookies. They're Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies..in other words the carefree, relaxing, melt-your-worries-away cookies. Buttery soft oatmeal cookie dough and tart dried cranberries are the perfect match. Who ever invented this combination was a genius!
