25 Days of Cookies Day 18 - Apple Chai Oatmeal Cookies

I found this recipe a while back on the Oregon Chai website and fell in love!  They have what I consider to be all of the yummiest holiday flavors - Apple, Oatmeal and Spice!  For me, I omit the chocolate chips and the nuts so Wayne and I can both eat them... for the holidays I add dried cranberries in place of the raisins.
