55 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

Sweetened dried cranberries lend color and sweet-tartness to these oatmeal cookies. Make them up to three days ahead, and store in an airtight container.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare cookies, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, quick-cooking oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and ground nutmeg in a bowl. Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and cranberries; beat at low speed until combined. Shape dough into 55 (1-inch) balls. Place the balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until almost firm. Let stand on the baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheets; cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 3

To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar and remaining ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spoon mixture into a small zip-top plastic bag. Snip a small hole in 1 corner of bag; drizzle glaze over cooled cookies.

These were delicious! They have a slight cinnamon flavor that is perfect for fall. We were short on craisins so added about half of those and half chocolate chips. Brought them to a football tailgate and they were a huge hit!

This is a good soilid recipe if you are looking for a crispy oatmeal cookie. I wanted more soft oatey & chewy goodness so this was not what I was searching for!

I added some cocoa powder to give it a chocolate hint and they came out great. The glaze is not even needed.

This recipe is wonderful. I agree with another reader that the glaze really finishes off the cookies nicely. I made these last weekend and got such rave reviews that we're making them again today!

These were very simple to make and taste delicious. The drizzle really finishes them off and gives them a bit of a zip.
