White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

I found this recipe on Pinterest a while back and finally got the chance to make them today.  They are as good as I thought they'd be.  I especially love the tartness of the cranberries against the sweetness of the rest of the cookies.

White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from two twenty one

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cups dried cranberries
  • 1-1/4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In mixing bowl, cream butter with sugars; mix in egg and vanilla.
  3. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together and stir in.
  4. Fold in oats, cranberries, white chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans.
  5. Roll into 1" balls and place on cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass or measuring cup dipped in sugar.
  6. Bake 12-14 minutes or until cookies are set and starting to brown.  Cool on a wire rack.

I mixed these up by hand, but the original recipe called for using an electric mixer. Either way works.  Just be sure your butter is really soft if you're mixing by hand.  When it's time to add the cranberries and white chocolate chips, etc., you'll want to mix those in by hand.

I added the coconut and pecans to the recipe, because they just sounded good with all the other ingredients.  I also flattened the cookies slightly before baking them because I just rolled the first pan I baked, and they didn't really spread out.  Even flattened, they don't spread out much, but that's OK - they're good!  I'll definitely make these again.
