Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies are one of my husband’s favorite cookies.  Hard to think I would try to change our favorite oatmeal cookies recipe.  Well, I decided it was time for a change, omitted the cinnamon and added orange peel, orange juice and dried cranberries.  The results, let’s just say my cookie monster thinks they are fantastic!  That is all I need to give this recipe 5 stars.
