Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
I am not usually a cookie baker but these turned out delicious. I doubled the cranberries and left out the rains and white chocolate chips since they were not handy. I also used Trader Joes orange flavored cranberries which kicked them up. Definitely will make again
Wonderful without the raisins, but with the raisins only 3 stars.
These cookies were quite crumbly and did not meet my expectations. Would not make them again.
These cookies were very good. I loved the use of oatmeal in the cookie for added texture. I did not care for the raisins in combination with the cranberries so will probably leave those out next time. I also would like some additional crunch so will probably add in some chopped pecans the next time I make this recipe. The cranberry and white chocolate flavor combination worked very well! I loved the addition of the orange zest for additional complementary flavor. This is a very nice holiday cookie!
these were really good-I made a couple changes. I omitted the vanilla chips as I don't like them. I substituted 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I also didn't add the raisins but did add about 1/4 cup more cranberries. Everything else was as is and I liked the way they turned out. Oops, I also made them larger. I never like it when a recipe calls for a teaspoon of batter, I always like using a tablespoon. I just cooked them longer. They were crunchy outside and soft inside.
A tasty cookie- I might make again. I only had jumbo eggs and that may be why I wasn't as thrilled with them as anticipated, as they were super soft. I don't like candy chips, so I went heavier on the fruit, keeping the cranberries and raisins, and adding a little over a cup of chopped dates. If I'd had pecans I would definitely have added 1/2 c or so. If I make these again and only have jumbo eggs I'll maybe add some coconut and/or a little extra oatmeal for some additional density. I was also peeved that the recipe failed to specify fresh or dried orange peel; all I had was Penzey's orange peel, so to be safe I only used 1 1/4 tsp, which was plenty. Baked at 375? for 10 minutes and they were just right, although I used a steel pan and an aluminum pan and discovered that the steel pan was better because the cookies didn't spread so much.
I made this exactly as the recipe stated (after the first batch I had to turn the oven down to about 360). They were AMAZING. No tweaks other than the temperature. I just found my go-to holiday cookie recipe!

The base dough for this recipe is excellent. I used pistachios and fresh cranberries. I still had my oven set to 350 and forgot to change it.. but they turned out great anyway. One of the best cookies i've ever tasted.
