Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I made these cookies this past Saturday for my co-workers at Barnes & Noble. We were gonna be up all night for the Breaking Dawn release party. These cookies were definitely quick and easy and delicious! I got a ton of compliments! Sorry, I didn't take a picture, I was in a hurry! Here's one from the Ocean Spray website.


2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened (I used both; see Jennie's tips for chocolate chip cookies)

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt1

6-ounce package Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Sweetened Dried Cranberries

2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips (I used Ghiradelli chocolate, YUM!)


Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in sweetened dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

P.S. I like to use a small ice cream scoop from Pampered Chef to scoop the dough. I love how the cookies come out about the same and they seem to cook a little more evenly.

P.P.S. Sorry about the weird spacing. My computer is freaking out and my "U" is deciding to be difficult. Sorry if I am missing any of those! :-)

These sounded so great, so I made them on Sunday afternoon! So delicious! I added a bit of vanilla even though the recipe didn't call for it. I also switched the proportions of white chocolate chips and Craisins...I added more white chocolate chips and fewer Craisins. ;)
