Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

cranberryoatmeal

This cookie comes with a little story. When making my Christmas cookie list, I asked my husband what he wanted. He came up with such plain, un-Christmasy, cookies such as peanut butter, chocolate chips, oatmeal. Now, don't get me wrong, these cookies are all delicious. They just don't scream Christmas to me. But, I thought I could turn the oatmeal request into something festive. I have always wanted to make Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies, so this was my big chance. I found the following recipe on the Ocean Spray website.

Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 6-ounce package dried cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in sweetened dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 ½ dozen cookies.

To make them just a tad more festive, I used the other half of the white chocolate chips, melted with a bit of shortening to make a little drizzle topping!
