  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your cookie sheets or cover them with parchment. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir in the oats.With an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then scrape down the sides of the bowl; add the honey and vanilla and beat until blended. Add the flour mixture in two additions, beating until well combined. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts.
  • Drop the dough by the heaping tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets. Bake until the centers of the cookies are soft and no longer look wet, 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Great recipe! I doubled the recipe, omitted walnuts, added (1 bag-Nestle for a doubled recipe) white chocolate chips. Chilled 48 hours. Did not spread, cooked a little longer due to being chilled. Held their shape really well. DELICIOUS!

    Perfect combination of ingredients! I love that the cookies look brown and yet are so soft!

    I'm a sucker for oatmeal cookies and these did not disappoint. Terrific cookie, makes a TON. Had an amber honey on hand, and the honey taste really came through. A friend who hates walnuts even liked these.
