One of my favorite cookie recipes

(By the way...I have a batch of these in the oven as we speak.)

Easier oatmeal cranberry white chocolate chip cookies

1 c butter (2 sticks) softened
1 c white sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 c oats
1 c dried sweetened cranberries (Craisins* or off brand--whichever you prefer)
1 c white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375.   2. Cream together butter and sugar.  3. Mix in eggs, milk and vanilla.  4. In separate container, mix flour, soda, salt, and oats; add slowly to butter mixture.  5. Stir in cranberries and white chocolate chips.

Decide how big you want your cookies to be, and choose teaspoon or tablespoon to drop dough onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-13 minutes until golden brown.

*The back of the Craisins package calls for 2/3 cup butter, and different proportions of everything else.  Makes a smaller batch, too.  This...this is a better recipe than theirs.


  1. Sometimes my wife brings home cookies from her mom's. I like them with coffee. Good for the soul.

    1. I've been wanting these particular cookies for a while, and got off my butt and dug the butter out of the fridge yesterday to soften.
