Cranberries are so delicious and really do remind me of the holidays. These cranberry pecan oatmeal cookies are super tasty and with the tart bits of fresh cranberries, delicious pecans and the white chocolate chips throughout, there is amazing flavor in every bite. Cranberries seriously are perfect to add to most dessert recipes when fruit is the main ingredient. I have recently made a Cranberry Orange Pecan Loaf that is AMAZING as well as a Cranberry Orange Pecan Crisp that uses fresh cranberries and boy are these desserts delicious.
Look at those fresh bits of cranberries. I made these cookies for my daughter and son-in-law while they were visiting over the Thanksgiving weekend and every cookies got gobbled up. They are both in the military, my daughter, Nikki, is in the Navy and Justin, my son-in-law, the Marines. It was great having them out here to celebrate the holiday.
