Spiced Cranberry Apple Oatmeal Cookies: A Little Something to Nibble on While I’m Gone

By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way to Seattle for the International Food Blogger Conference sponsored by Foodista. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! Not only am I going to meet some of my favorite food bloggers and Twitter friends, but I’ll be learning some great tips and strategies to hopefully make SGCC bigger and better. Plus, I’ve never been to Seattle before and I’ve always wanted to visit there.

I’m arriving a day early so that I can check out some of the sites, especially the famous Pike Place Market. Tomorrow, I’ll be out there, shopping ’til I drop and I can’t wait!

I wanted to leave you with a little something to nibble on while I’m gone and I couldn’t think of anything better than these fabulous Spiced Cranberry Apple Oatmeal Cookies. I found a version of these little beauties on Smitten Kitchen’s web site many months ago and fell in love with them. Deb makes hers with white chocolate chunks, but I’ve tweaked the recipe to include cinnamon-spiced dried apples and cranberries. She says that they are “scandalously good”, and I agree. I think that they are To. Die. For., and I hope you do too!

Hope you all have delicious weekend!

    This sounded like such a fun event! Guess we’ll just have to read everyone’s experiences this year. Delicious cookies. The sinfully cinnamon spice sounds great.

    This is too funny. I am baking off a batch of SmittenKitchen’s salted oatmeal cookies right this VERY MINUTE! I added dried cherries (and the called-for white chocolate) to mine, and they’re very tasty.

    When I opened SGCC today, I saw the picture and thought, “Hm. Those look like the SK cookies I’m making…” Too, too funny. Have a great trip!
