How To Make Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies
I always start by preheating the oven, before I get going and forget. Have you ever started cooking, go to put food in the oven, only to realize that it was cold?? No?
Okay, well then just preheat your oven to 375℉ so that is not your story for this recipe either.
Then, in a large bowl, combine the butter and sugars and stir until creamy and well combined.
In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and oats and stir until all of that is well combined. This is where it all comes together.
You add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix everything up until it is mixed well!
Then add in your eggs and vanilla, and mix that good as well. Fold in white chocolate chips and cranberries, making sure to over-mix things.
Using a small cookie scooper or dropping the dough with a spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 7 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. They may not seem done, but the edges browning indicate that they are and will make sure that the centers are nice and chewy. Yum!
Let your cookies cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a rack to finish cooling.
