It’s already Day Three of Fall Cookie Week! Yesterday was the first day of my Fall Open House. Things are off to a slow start, but that’s usually how these things go. I’m hoping for a busy weekend.


Did you get a chance to enter the giveaway? If you haven’t yet, be sure to visit yesterday’s post. I think it’s a cool giveaway! It’s small pieces from my Gift Shoppe all packed up in a pretty little basket. 


Personally, I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal cookies, but I figured they were a must-have for fall baking. I jazzed mine up a bit with some white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. 

The end result may have me rethinking my aversion. These are fabulous! 

White Chocolate and Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies


Here’s what you’ll need:


2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened


2/3 cup brown sugar


2 large eggs


1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats


1 1/2 cups flour


1 teaspoon baking soda


1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt


1 5-ounce package dried cranberries


2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips



Let’s get baking:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking power, and salt. Set aside.


Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. About three minutes.


Beat eggs, one at a time, and add with the vanilla to the butter mixture. 


Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour mixture in three portions, mixing each just until incorporated. 


Using a spoon or spatula, stir in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. 


Drop spoonfuls (about 1.5 tablespoons) of dough two inches apart on to an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten dough balls with your fingers.


Bake 10 to 12 minutes until cookies are just becoming firm. Remove cookies from baking sheet with a spatula. Allow to cool completely.

    Adding chopped pecans and orange flavor makes these cookies a “to-die-for” treat

    These look amazing!!! Do you have any suggestions for a substitute to eggs… Or would i be able to only use the yolk for this recipe, my son has an egg white allergy…I have been trying to steer clear of eggs period…looking forward to finding a way to make these!

    These look delicious. My favorite cookie of all time is my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe with White Chocolate Chips, Craisins and Pecans substituted in for the choc chips! This looks like it might be a little healthier!

    certainly like your web-site but you need
    to check the spelliong on quite a few of your posts.

    A number of them arre rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform
    the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.
