Same Old Cookie, Yummier Twist

Yesterday I felt the insane need to bake something.  I looked in our pantry and saw a big bag of Craisins that I knew I could do something with.  So I thought...hmm, muffins?  Nah.  Too messy.  

And then it hit me.  Oatmeal craisin cookies.  I'm not a fan of raisins at all so this seemed to be an acceptable substitution.

Just use your favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and instead of adding raisins put in the craisins.  It's really easy and is a great cookie for upcoming fall picnics and even a new alternative to Christmas cookies (I will definitely be making a batch or two of these for friends).  Not to mention your place will smell so yummy after your cookies will done.

That's my favorite part of baking.  Enjoy.
