Top | Cookies, Brownies, and Bar Cookies
(recipe, Kim Carlson)
A friend pressed this recipe into my hand (OK, sent it in an email from her iPhone) and said it was the best cookie recipe ever. I was intrigued because it's a flourless oatmeal cookie. When I adapted the recipe, I left out the M&Ms and increased the chocolate chips; I also lessened the total amount of sugar, but increased the brown sugar by 1/2 cup. The cookies are plenty sweet and nicely chewy — every bit as delicious as she promised.
If you prefer dried cranberries to raisins, feel free to use them. Also, if you prefer to use creamy peanut butter, that's OK, too.
