Yummieee cookies ~ and the oats make them chewy. The only things I changed were the amount of sugar (and they were plenty sweet) I put about 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar. And I used a stick plus 3 Tbsp. of butter instead of 2 sticks....Also used some dried cherries since I didn't have enough cranberries. *Lots of flavor ~ Love the orange in it*

I had recently tasted some wonderful cranberry-orange cookies and found this recipe shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, they came out bad! Maybe it was me but the came out "poofy" more like a bread instead of a cookie. I will try it again - I'm not giving up!

great cookies!! this is a recipe i would definately make again & recommend.. it really did make soft, chewy, flavorful cookies!! **PREPERATION: i added extra orange zest, extract & cranberries... **BAKING: baked on Pampered Chef stoneware on bottom shelf (this always produces soft chewy cookies i find..) for about 15 mins (it takes a bit longer to bake on stoneware) **MODIFICATIONS: next time i'm going to add white chocolate chips & use flavored cranberries...

Great cookies, very easy to make. I used 1 tablespoonful of Cointreau (orange flavored liqueur) instead of orange extract, and orange-flavored dried cranberries. Yummy! Next time I'll use even more Cointreau.

I really enjoyed these cookies. They are a great way to trick the kids into eating oatmeal and cranberries! They had no clue until I told them. The orange flavor adds a great depth to the cookies. They were so moist and chewy. These cookies have made my permanent recipe list!

In place of cranberries, I put fresh, chopped apricots in the cookies and a little extra cinnamon. They are excellent! FYI: The batter is very sticky. My first batch of cookies were HUGE because I put heaping spoonfuls on the pan. You only need to use very small tablespoon-size spoonfuls and they turn out very moist and very good!

Just made a batch... Very good Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies. A little on the sweet side and could use a bit more cinnamon. Other than that wonderful recipe.
