Last year, I saw recipes for cookies like this floating around the internet. A friend brought some to my house and they were so good. How can you go wrong with white chocolate chips and cranberries?
I decided to make them yesterday, but didn’t want to look up the recipe. Googling is so hard, you know?
So I tweaked the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe from the back of the Walmart brand oat box. As soon as I finished making them, I noticed the recipe on the back of the Craisin package. Oh well. My tweaked recipe tasted buttery, with the sweet-tart flavors of the white chips and cranberries. And the recipe made a lot. Enough to munch and freeze some for later.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup butter or margarine, softened (I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbs. milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 4 cups oats (quick cooking or regular, I used regular)
- white baking chips, 11 oz bag
- 1 cup dried cranberries
Mix the butter and sugars with an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs, milk and vanilla.
Stir the baking soda and salt into the flour. Add to the mixer bowl and beat until combined. Add the oats to the bowl, mixing until combined. Stir in the white chips and cranberries.
Drop by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet or baking stone. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes. Don’t over bake them.
