White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

I served these cookies at Bridget's not-farewell in December. I've heard this is a copycat recipe for a Mrs. Field's cookie, but I've yet to see this cookie at any of her shops. It's good. If you just told me the name of the cookie I'd probably shrug my shoulders . . . you're just going to have to trust me on these. After the last guest left my house I had two extra large disposable turkey pans full of these cookies . . . I was EXCITED they were hanging around my house for the holidays. It's a good cookie, chewy and delicious. Try it.


3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
3/4 cup dried cranberries
6 ounces white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl using an electric mixer combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix well to cream together. Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well. Fold in the oatmeal, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips- making sure that all ingredients are uniformly distributed. 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. Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer cookies to cooling rack.
