White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

For some reason oatmeal cookies tend to get shoved to the sidelines, while chocolate chip cookies get the spotlight. But oatmeal cookies are packed with so much flavor and awesome textures. The oatmeal gives cookies a nice contrast to the sweetness.

These oatmeal cookies are exceptional and combine the best of the oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie worlds with the addition of white chocolate chips. Instead of the traditional raisins for oatmeal cookies, I added cranberries. There is something about the zing of the cranberry that beautifully pairs with the sweet white chocolate. My family said they were some of the best cookies they had ever eaten.

How to make the best white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies

These cookies don’t require a mixer and the chilling time is limited, making them quick to stir-up and bake with minimal dishes afterwards.  Actually, it is important not to chill the dough for too long. Leaving the dough in the refrigerator for several hours hardens the dough too much and the cookies won’t spread. About 30 min of chilling is ideal, it firms them up just enough to keep them thick.

If you’re not a cranberry person, you can try my chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe. It uses brown butter to make them extra special. In fact you could use that recipe and substitute white chocolate chips and cranberries for the chocolate chips.

    I made these for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about them! I may or may not have eaten half of the batch myself… 🙂 They were to die for! Thank you for this delicious recipe!

    I made these they were awesome…. I put my own twist on the recipe I used dried cherries and put pistachios in them as well didn’t use the cranberries. They were to die for. They were awesome before as well Thank You

    I was wondering if you have ever made these without the white chocolate chips? Not that chocolate isn’t always the best option. ??.?. I’m going to pin the recipe for later.

  1. […]   Since there are probably about 30 million recipes floating around the internet already for regular oatmeal cookies, I decided to add an extra bit of fall flair by adding some maple buttercream to make them sandwich cookies. Besides, sandwich cookies are so much fun to eat! First of all, because you get to eat two cookies at once, and second, because you get to frosting with them! However, if you want a simpler treat, feel free to make the cookie sans frosting. For another way to dress up oatmeal cookies, check out my Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. […]
