Chewy Toffee Oatmeal Cookies

Generally speaking, I’m not a cookie fan.  Too bad for my hooligans, right?  I do frequently make cookies, but I send them in to my GI Joe’s work every Friday, so the kids just get a couple each.

Last week, I made a double recipe of my favorite oatmeal cookies, so I could send some, we could eat some, and I could freeze mounds of cookie dough to bake later.  I love these because they combine the tartness of cranberries, the chewiness of oatmeal, and a bit of both white and milk chocolate, along with the buttery crunch of toffee. This cookie can be all things to all people!
