Hoping you all had a great Thanksgiving if you celebrated! We are now looking forward to Christmas in our house. We love to bake so we will be sharing lots of our goodies with friends and family. I try to vary our cookies from year to year but there are several that my family MUST have each year. On Sunday I will highlight several of these cookies but today we made these for Thanksgiving but they are delicious anytime!
Verdict: These cookies are yummy and make a simple oatmeal cookie seem a bit extra special. If you want to add a special touch for Christmas melt a few white chocolate chips and drizzle the chocolate over the cookies to make them look extra pretty.
In the bowl beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg and then the vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to the bowl and beat until just mixed.
Stir in the oats, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips and mix until fully combined.
Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Using a medium cookie scoop (2 tablespoon size) drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Roll the cookie dough into balls and very gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly.
Bake in separate batches for 10-13 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
