Chewy oatmeal cookies are Stan’s all-time favorite.

Need I say anymore? That’s enough inspiration and reason for me to make these delectable cranberry pecan cookies! These chunky, melt-in-your-mouth cookies are the perfect addition in his lunch box.

I’d say when Cranberries and White Chocolate get married the result is pure bliss.Β Β πŸ™‚ I make a few different kinds of oatmeal cookies but this is my favorite and near the top of his lists too. There are so many fun things you can do with the combination of cranberries and white chocolate and cookies are just one of them.

Happy Baking!
