White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
I originally made these at the request of my old chorus director, who also worked at Starbucks (I think he'd had the combo in a cookie there, once). I was surprised but very pleased they came out so tasty! These days, these are pretty much the only cookies which are requested and I make on a fairly regular basis.
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar [150 g]
6 ounces white chocolate chips (170 gr)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
1 cup all-purpose flour [140 g]
1/2 cup butter [114 g]
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup packed brown sugar [55 g]
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant) [132 g]
1.Preheat oven to 375°F.
2.In a large bowl using an electric mixer combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix well to cream together.
3.Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
4.Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.
5.Fold in the oatmeal, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips- making sure that all ingredients are uniformly distributed.
6.Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes, just until the edges are lightly golden.
7.Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer cookies to cooling rack.
