Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Ingredients

I used two flours for this recipe to achieve the texture I wanted. 

  • cake flour
  • bread flour
  • baking soda
  • sea salt
  • some old-fashioned oats
  • unsalted butter
  • granulated sugar
  • light brown sugar
  • an egg
  • pure vanilla extract
  • a few white chocolate chips
  • fresh cranberries

How to Make Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and oats.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chips and cranberries using a rubber spatula.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough and arrange them 2 inches apart.

Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges.

Remove from oven and let cool on a baking sheet for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely.

How to store cranberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies

Store oatmeal cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. You can also freeze the cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 months. 

Can I switch the two flours for regular flour?

Yes, you can; however, the soft texture of the cookies may be slightly different. But they will be just as delicious. 

Can I use dried or frozen cranberries instead of fresh ones?

Yes, you can use dried or frozen cranberries instead of fresh cranberries to make this recipe. Frozen cranberries might cause the color of the cranberries to bleed. For best results, use fresh cranberries.
