This is a delicious cookie that is fun and festive during the holidays, and also a little different from some of the normal cookie fare you might see in the month of December. The oatmeal gives a crunchy texture and the cranberries make the cookie wonderfully chewy. And the chocolate drizzle? What better way to top off this yummy cookie?!

Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
1/2 c. butter
1 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. baking powder
1 c. quick-cooking oatmeal
1 c. chopped cranberries
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
chocolate for drizzling (I melted 1 c. of semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Beat butter until creamy. Add next 5 ingredients and beat until combined. Stir in oats, cranberries and walnuts. Drop on greased cookie sheet and bake @ 375 for 10 to 12 minutes and let cool. Melt chocolate chips in 30 second intervals in microwave until almost completely melted. Be careful not to burn the chocolate! Spoon the chocolate into a ziploc, and snip a tiny section off a corner. Drizzle over cooled cookies and let set.

Makes about 36 cookies.
