In My Kitchen: White Chocolate Cranberry Oat Cookies

I’m not usually a big fan of white chocolate. But for some reason, this recipe has easily become my favorite cookie recipe.

The white chocolate chips taste sweet and creamy, not like white chocolate. The cranberries are tart and the oats are sweet, nutty and chewy. Basically all these flavors and textures really mesh together well – enjoy!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Yield: 2 dozen cookies

You’ll need:

  • 2 sticks (8 ounces, 1 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant oats)
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.

3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides as needed. Beat in the milk and the vanilla extract until combined.

4. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. On low speed, gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter/sugar mixture until just incorporated. Turn mixer off.

5. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, stir the oats, white chocolate chips, and cranberries into the cookie dough, stirring just until incorporated.

6. Scoop 2-inch balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1 and 1/2 inches between so they have room to spread.

7. Bake, one sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden and set at the edges and still slightly soft in the center. Repeat with all cookie dough.

8. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

9. Enjoy!
