oatmeal craisin m&m cookies

I wanted to make oatmeal raisin cookies with chocolate chips, but soon discovered that I did not have raisins or chocolate chips. What I did have were craisins and dark chocolate m&m’s.


What a wonderful and tasty substitute To my surprise, these cookies tasted and smelled like Christmas.


Try using an ice-cream scoop to get cookies evenly sized.
