CWCCO Cookies

Second times the charm! I decided to try these cookies again for Thanksgiving (what better cookie than a cranberry cookie right? LOL). After contacting MrsPresley, who I got the original recipe from – she explained that she used instant oats while I used old fashion whole oats the first time and maybe that might be the reason for my thin dough? Version 2 definitely came out better with her suggestion!

PS- To all my beloved foodie friends… HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

    I had the same dilemma when a recipe called for oatmeal and all I had was oats. My mom, who is also a nutritionist, said to put the oats in the food processor. The problem with the oats is they are too big so they don’t cook long enough so the batter is thinner and the cookies are chewier.
    I’m excited to try this recipe!
