Cranberry and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I have made these cookies more time than I can count, and they never get old.  For the first time, Casey made this batch and I thought I should document this momentous occasion of his first baking adventure. 

I shouldn’t be surprised, though.  When I mentioned that we could bring cookies to his grandma, he jumped on the chance to make them for her.

Oatmeal cookies are a great place to start for a novice baker.  They are so easy to put together, and cook super fast.

We’ve had a hard time keeping out of these babies.  They’re hidden until we get ready to leave.  After all, they are for one special lady.

Cranberry and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the brown sugar and butter.

Mix in the egg, vanilla and milk.  Stir in the flour, baking powder and soda and salt until well combined.

Stir in the oats, dried cranberries, walnuts and white chocolate chips.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop cookies onto cookie sheet with using a tablespoon.  Cookies should be about 1 1/2 inches wide.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown.

    No, all the chunks are just from the cranberries, white chocolate chips, walnuts and oatmeal. It’s a pretty chunky dough!

    These do look good (and I’m a sucker for oatmeal cookies, cranberries, and white chocolate, so it sounds like a winner for me!). I might want to try them with cherries, too.

    I just made these cookies for me and my mom and they are AMAZING. The flavors are perfect. After licking the batter bowl clean we also had a very difficult time not devouring the entire tray of cookies..

    I made these today, while they are very yummy, they were not as full and chunky as yours turned out. Any tricks?

    That is odd! Did you use all of the chunky ingredients, like oats, walnuts, cranberries and white chocolate chips? If so, and you place them by heaping tablespoon onto a cookie sheet, they should hold their chunky form through baking. I know sometimes if I forget the baking powder, they go flat as well.

    Adrienne. Yes, I used it all! Oh well, sometimes cookies can be fickle. Thanks though, and they were still yummy regardless.
