Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

How To Make Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies
- Old Fashion Oats (NOT quick oats!)
- Fresh Cranberries
- White Chocolate Chips
- Brown Sugar
- Baking Soda
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 theses cookies and they were a hit! They just disappeared in about 20 minutes, so no picture to share. Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe
I made this for the holidays and they were a big hit. Some batches I made with walnuts and others with pecans. Both were delicious. I can’t seem to get fresh cranberries anymore, would this work with dried cranberries?
They were awesome…i didntnuse fresh cranberries I rehydrated cranberries came out great
These cookies were a big hit at my Christmas cookie party at work. No leftovers to bring back home. YUM!! I added zest of 1 orange and 1/2 c of coconut and they were DELISH. Thanks for posting this recipe. Will definitely be making these again.
These were better than expected and they look so pretty. All the flavors just pop. This will be a must every Christmas. So good!
My hubby who doesn’t like cranberries just said these may be the best cookies I have ever made!! Winner! I did make these with gluten free free oats and flour. I also added a bit of orange zest because I couldn’t resist! Yum! Thank you!
Hi there. Has anyone used walnuts instead of pecans?? What was the feedback?
found this recipe and made it for the cookie exchange party. They were a hit! My husband is crazy about them. Getting ready to make more today.
I Make These Every Christmas For The Last 20 Years, I Absolutely Love Them!! Compliments On These Everywhere I Take Them!!
Delicious cookies! I’ve made them twice now. Recipe is fairly forgiving as well. I made a bunch of cookies today and let the dough get too soft so they spread quite a bit, but they still taste great.
