Two Peas and Their Pod: Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Dried Cranberries

Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Dried Cranberries

During the holidays I have to make my oatmeal cookies with white chocolate and dried cranberries. It is a must! They are the perfect cookie for this time of year! The dried cranberries are nice and sweet and go perfectly with the white chocolate chunks. And of course the oatmeal background is fabulous! I included these cookies in my goodie bags. Here is the recipe! The recipe below makes about 2 1/2 dozen. If you need more, go ahead and double it, I did and they turned out great! Enjoy!

Oatmeal White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

½ c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. oats
1 cup of dried cranberries-I use Craisins
White chocolate- I chop up good white chocolate, but you can use white chocolate chips too! I use about 1 cup or so. Use more if you like!

In a mixer, beat butter and sugars until smooth. Mix in eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix in slowly to wet ingredients. Add your oats, Craisins, and white chocolate.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes! Don’t let them get too done…they are better when they are soft!

Oh my gosh, these look amazing! I love a cookie that seems like it is tailor-made for this time of year -- and this is one of those cookies. It makes me want to break out into "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree!" My hubby, who doesn't eat chocolate, will love these!

The pictures really look great! I'm jealous of the new camera. I can't wait to try these. I just had a white chocolate cranberry cookie the other day that was missing something. I think the oatmeal will solve the problem!

I love the festive colour of the cranberries. With the temperatures dipping well below zero your post on ice cream was just making me...well cold. Brrr. I am sure it was delicious though but this post reminds me of warm kitchens and homey goodness:D

I have a recipe similar to this one and I haven't baked it yet. I'm feeling a little bad about that and now that I've seen yours, I feel the need to get back in the kitchen. White chocolate and cranberries are a great mix!

These are delish! I want to make another batch but I know I'll wind up eating at least 1/2 of them by myself so do you know how I can make it lighter? Can I subsitute some of the butter with yogurt or applesauce and if so, how? thanks
