White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies Recipe
The recipe is simple enough with easy to find ingredients. You can pick up dried cranberries and white chocolate at any grocery store.
To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets or cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
Then, in a bowl whisk together the flour, rolled oats, baking powder, and salt. I use just the regular quick oats that you would use for making oatmeal.
In a large bowl, use a handheld mixer to mix together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Mix for about a minute or until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add in one egg and one teaspoon of vanilla and mix until combined.
Then, mix in the oatmeal/flour mixture until the batter is just combined.
Lastly, add in the white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. A spatula or wooden spoon is good for mixing the chips and cranberries into the batter. The batter will be thick.
Baking White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
At this point you can chill the batter for later use or roll into cookies now. I like to use a small cookie scoop to roll the dough into balls and then place them on the lined cookie sheets.
The cookies will spread, so be sure to leave about an inch and half of space between the cookies. You should be able to get a dozen cookies on each baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Let chill on pan for five minutes before moving to rack to cool completely.
White Chocolate Cranberry cookies taste awesome as is. But to dress them up a bit, I love to add a drizzle of white chocolate over the top.
