Two dudes in my family aren’t fans of chocolate chip cookies. CCCs are generally my go-to cookie because I have my favorite recipe memorized and can make them from scratch without too much thought.
Since there is usually some grumbling from a portion of the dude crowd whenever chocolate chip cookies are made, I’m trying to mix things up and make more oatmeal raisin type cookies that they enjoy.
Since I had some white chocolate chips and some cranberries in the pantry for some holiday treats I’m gonna make, I thought I’d use some for these cookies…so that everyone could enjoy them!
