My daughter Eliza is a cookie loving fiend. She will eat just about any cookie she can get her hands on but put a box of oatmeal cookies with cranberry and chocolate in front of that girl and she practically inhales them. These cookies were actually a late-night addition to the 12 Days of Cookies and I am really glad now that they made the cut.
You see, Eliza had been away visiting family for Thanksgiving, so that entire weekend I spent creating, testing, baking, and photographing all of these cookies. I miss her so much when she is away that it was a great way to keep my mind occupied in her absence.
The day she came home I decided to use the last of the cookie making ingredients to whip up a surprise batch of cranberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies just for her. She was so excited to come home and see the big platter of cookies, and it was nice to sit at the table and share cookies with her while hearing all about her trip.
