How To Make Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

  • Fresh Cranberries
  • Pecans
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt

If you’ve ever made oatmeal raisin cookies you will notice that this recipe is very similar. You start by creaming butter and sugar, then adding one egg at a time and lastly the vanilla. In a different bowl, stir the flour, cinnamon, sugar and baking soda. Take that bowl and add the mix to your wet ingredients bowl.

When that’s all combined, you can fold in the chocolate, cranberries, pecans and oats.

Oatmeal Cookie Tips

  • Don’t pack the flour. Be sure to scoop it gently and level it off evenly.
  • Don’t over-mix. Once ingredients are mixed together stop without over mixing.
  • Use softened butter. Like most cookies, don’t try and use cold butter. You can do this quickly by filling a glass with very hot water. Then once it has warmed the glass, pour it out and cover the stick of butter with the warm glass. This will soften the butter.

    I made these as written & they were really good! However, that’s a lot of butter. Can I do 1/2c butter & 1/2c applesauce?

    I made these for Xmas and they are just delicious. Very tasty and will definitely make them again.  My neighbour’s sweet tooth certainly agrees.

    Love this recipe exactly as presented. My family, friends and coworkers, all love these cookies. I have been making the same cookies for years and am thrilled to have a new one. My daughter says they are the perfect combination of flavors. Thank you.

    Husband won’t stop eating them LOL
    So I melted the butter too much and the dough was not as solid so I baked the first batch about 5 minutes longer and then put the remaining dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then they baked great after that. Christmas week all the white chocolate baking chips were wiped off the shelf so I bought a full size white chocolate bar and chopped it up. Worked great. Bought fresh cranberries from the produce section of the grocery store and cut them in to quarters.

      Thank you for this! I was looking for a way to make this gluten free

    These are excellent! I made some healthy changes:  Used gluten free old fashioned oats, Lily’s sugar free white chocolate chips, ghee in place of butter, dried cranberries rehydrated in apple juice, and toasted my pecans prior to adding them. I baked them on parchment covered cookie sheets. My oven runs a bit hot so my cookies were done in 8 minutes. A definite keeper!

  6. These yummy cookies were a BIG hit in the neighborhood. I passed out a few with each Christmas card and everyone loved them. Of course I saved some for me…
