Grandma's Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Grandma's Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Prep Time 20 Minutes Cook Time 12+ Minutes

My grandma claimed to not like sweets. She was a great cook, but many of the things that she liked didn't necessarily appeal to my childish palate. 

There was one recipe that we both agreed on - her oatmeal cookies.

She liked it because they weren't very sweet.

I liked them because...well, they are cookies!

Because these are a cake-y textured cookie that isn't overly sugary, they make awesome snacks and are best when crumbled into milk.
