  • 1 cup unsalted butter - 2 sticks at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips


  1. In a large standing mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix again.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients - the oatmeal, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix until just combined. Don't over-mix!

  3. Then add the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, and stir them in by hand. Roll dough into approximately 22 cookie balls, and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for at least two hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place about 8 cookie balls on the pan, and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown. Remove to cooling racks.
