Hooty Who?!

The ingredient list sounded delicious: cranberries, white chocolate chips, oatmeal, pecans....and then I got to the name and it sealed the deal: Cranberry Hootycreeks. HOOTYCREEKS! I love it. Even the internet doesn't know how they got that name. When I presented them to Mr. Lawyer he said "hooty who?!" They are delicious and I just know that they'll be even better tomorrow (as all oatmeal-based cookies are). I did have to substitute regular chocolate chips for the white chips but it was still delicious.
