Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I whipped these up at about eleven o’clock at night after a batch of florentines went wrong! I wanted to bring some cookies with me when I went to see a friends new baby. I used the oatmeal cookie recipe from The Cookiepedia.

Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

These were really great chewy cookies! I refrigerated them for about half an hour as Tara recommends to enhance the chewiness and they were divine!

Enjoy! These would make an excellent Christmas cookie!

Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen


1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

2/3 cup light brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup plain flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats

2/3 cup dried cranberries (I used Craisins)

100g white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper (I used 2 good non stick trays). Cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon into a small bowl. Pour the flour into the butter mixture and combine on low speed. Pour in the oats, cranberries and white chocolate chips and stir until mixed.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes to enhance chewiness. Scoop tablespoon sized balls onto the baking sheets (I flattened mine with the palm of my hand since the dough was cold). Bake for 12-14 minutes, rotating tray halfway through.
  5. Place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Store in a sealed container.

    Thank you very much for the recipe. The PDF document is so helpful. Thank you. Hope you had a nice time visiting your friends baby.

  2. Oooh this look great!

    My boyfriend loves Oatmeal and raisin cookies, but they aren’t my favourite, I would get 1000 girlfriend points if I made these!

    Definitely going on my”too make list”

    Thank you!

    • always good to get in some brownie points! They’re pretty quick to whip as well. I made some M&M sugar cookies awhile ago that might be more to your taste if you’re not crazy about oatmeal.

    I recommend tossing in about a tablespoon or so of orange zest. It really ties in well with the other flavors. ^_^

  4. These look yummy!!
    I even have a small stockpile of whole cranberry’s in my freeze, i save them so i can make cranberry pumpkin bread all year.
    wonder if they would turn out good rather than dried. Might have to try this out tonight!!!

  5. Looks so yummy! I have such a long list of goodies to bake from your blog! :)

  6. The combination of cranberries and white chocolate sounds awesome!

    Could we have ingredients weighed in grams – rather than or as well as cups – still confusion in the UK about what is a cup of butter
