Our corner of the world is blanketed in snow right now and some snow day baking seemed called for. So I made my (great) Aunt Polly’s Oatmeal Jumbos. They were my favorite cookie growing up and I still love them. Her recipe calls for raisins but I used dried cranberries this time and cut them into heart shapes instead of circles.

Perfect for this heart-crazy time of year. Or anytime of year.
