White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Same Cookie, different song.



















Last week when I made the Oatmeal Scotchies I also made these little gems. All I had to do was divide the batter in half before stirring in the chips. So I may have cheated a little by not baking twice, but why not bake once and get two cookies? I am flying out of town today for a week, so I may not get a chance to post this week. Perhaps I will do some reviews of the food I eat while out of town. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this oatmeal cookie spin-off.


White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange
3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract in large bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats, cranberries, and white chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 1 - 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
