Do this guys sound familiar? yes, I know, I already updated an oatmeal cranberry cookie recipe. But this one has chocolate!
Last Friday it was my friend JM's bday. He lives in Atlanta so he got a package in the mail with one of my Spanish easter cakes and a box of these cookies. Not bad huh?
I wanted to try a new recipe for oatmeal-whatever cookies. Because you can really add whatever it is you want. Raisins? Apricot? Dark chocolate?. Your choice. Plus they have oatmeal. That makes them healthy, right? Right.
It didn't take me long to find a right combo of ingredients. This recipe comes from the 'Craisins' bag.
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups dried cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cream butter and sugar together until fluffly. Mix in the eggs one at a time. In a bowl, combine oats, flour and baking soda. Add to the wet mixture and mix well. Stir in the cranberries and chocolate chips and incorporate with a spatula. Drop by tablespoonfuls in an ungreased baking sheet. Press with a fork to flatten (they don't get flat during baking). Bake for 15 min or until lightly golden.
