Triple Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

It’s been awhile since I’ve had this much time to bake! School let out for break yesterday, so this upcoming week will be full of baked goodies and breakfast recipes to help spice up your holiday week.

If you haven’t been able to tell, I love cranberries. Their tartness is a wonderful contrast to the sweetness that baked goods have, along with being festive and pretty. When I stumbled upon these cookies on Epicurious, I knew that they had to be in my mouth instantly. These cookies will make those people who claim to “not like cranberries” quickly fall in love with this magical fruit. The distinct tartness of the cranberries pairs so well with the sweetness of the chocolate, and the texture of the oatmeal in the background is exactly what you need to make these cookies oh-so-amazing. After stuffing yourself with thumbprints and fudge until you feel like you’re going to explode, I hope that you’ll try out these truly awesome cookies. Have a very happy holiday! 🙂
