Honey Oats Cookies with Ginger and Cranberries

Cookies… just  the name will make anyones mouth water ,everyone has  some cookie they just can’t resist. I need  one with my morning cup of  coffee to keep me going through the morning madness.

Cookies appear to have their origins in 7th century Persia shortly after the use of sugar became relatively common in the region.They then spread to Europe . By the 14th century, they were common. Most common modern cookie, given its style by the creaming of butter and sugar, was not common until the 18th century.

Cookies can be made with array of ingredients. This is medley of my favorite  flavors , having experimented with different things this is my best combination. Cookies with oats are a bit soft not biscity so i prefer to bake them full 15 mins. I used ground ginger powder.
