Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal CookiesA terrific oatmeal cookie bursting with chunks of creamy white chocolate and sweet-tart dried cranberries in every bite. Try them with other dried fruits, too—like dried cherries or blueberries, or chopped dried apricots.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chunks

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In medium bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir in oats. Set aside.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add honey and vanilla; beat until blended. Add the flour mixture in two additions, beating until well combined. Stir in cranberries and chocolate chunks.
  4. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets. Bake until the centers of the cookies are soft, about 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes; transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
