We are at the halfway point of Cookie Week! Day 4 is here already. Is it just me or does time seem to fly by these days? Oh well, we’ll salute it with a cookie. Today we’re baking Coconut Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. I almost didn’t even start this recipe. I am not a big fan of dried cranberries and it seemed like a meh cookie to me. When it came down to it I told myself that other people would like it so just do it already. Well the joke’s on me because these cookies are fan-tas-tic!

This kind of cookie can easily be a little dry and bland so I wanted to avoid that from the start. In the summer issue of Bake from Scratch magazine they featured a section on how to bake the perfect chocolate chip cookie. There is a recipe for each type of cookie (crispy, cakey, chewy, etc) and a chart showing which ingredients are important to that cookie type. I decided to start from that chart and work my way up to the cookie I wanted.
