I'd probably leave out the cranberries myself but I do like the idea as an addition to a traditional pumpkin recipe.

I purchased some pumpkin cookies at the grocery store the other day and they just weren't what I was hoping for.. nothing beats home made pumpkin cookies!

Too true! I always end up disappointed when I buy cookies store bought. Even some times at bakeries. Not always as fresh or as good as home made.
