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

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries and white chocolate. These are a favorite Christmas cookie at our house, but they taste good anytime of the year!

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

3. Using a mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until smooth. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the oats, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips.

4. Roll cookie dough into tablespoon size balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Don’t let them get too done…they are better when they are soft! Let cookies sit on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

    Do you have any advice for changes I need to make at 7,000 ft elevation? I made them at 5,000 ft and they turned out great, but just tried making them at 7,000 ft and they weren’t so great.

    Thanks for this recipe! We made it and instead of craisins we had frozen whole cranberries from Thanksgiving that we pureed in a food processor with the sugar and butter and used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of white chocolate and the cookies turned out divine!! Even my kids who HATE cranberries liked them. My hubby took them to a meeting and everyone loved them! Many were shocked to know they were cranberries (they thought the red flecks were raspberries). Thanks again.

      You are welcome! Love the idea of using whole cranberries.

    Hi! I am going to be making these cookies this weekend and I am super excited. They look so delicious. But I have a question: do these freeze well? I’m making tons of cookies this year and I’m trying to make a bunch ahead of time because i have an 8 month that likes my attention:) (I’ll only be making them a week ahead of time)

      Yes, you can freeze these cookies! Enjoy!

    Let me say, I was very disappointed by this recipe. I have been following Two Peas for almost a year now, and have had great success with all of the recipes I’ve used. That was not the case with these cookies. Something about the proportion of the ingredients must be off. 1 cup of cranberries and chocolate chips each was WAY too much for the amount of dough, and the dough itself was dry and crumbly. Even when I was taking the cookies off of the pan I had trouble with them breaking. Overall very disappointing recipe.

    Wow, these are so tasty! I love how they aren’t too sweet and can really appreciate that. :) These are good any season. I am eating one warm out of the oven right now.

    P.s. the ingredients calls for one egg but your instructions say “eggs” :)

      Glad you like the cookies! And I just updated the recipe, it was a very old post:)

    Made these today for my boyfriend who is deployed and they turned out a-m-a-zing! One little change though, unfortunately I did not realize I had NO vanilla in the house, so I substituted some almond extract which gave it a great flavor. I will definitely be making these again (like, tomorrow lol). Super easy with wonderful results!

    These cookies are amazing! I’m so glad I discovered your recipe. The oatmeal base is absolutely perfect. I have now made several different batches, tweaking the flavors based on what I have in the pantry. By far the white chocolate, cranberry is #1 in my house. They’re even great in the spring. Happy spring to you and your family!

    These are hard as a brick when they cool
    Other recipes I’ve tried are much better
