Cranberry Cookies

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

These Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies are soft, thick, chewy and absolutely delicious! They are perfect for sharing with family and friends.  Mix in whatever chocolate you like to make the perfect cookie for you!


  • 3/4 Cup Butter softened
  • 3/4 Cup White sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 3/4 Cup flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups Quick Oats
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Craisins or sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 cup dark or white chocolate chips


  • Combine the butter and  sugars until well blended. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing in between, and then blend the vanilla into the mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the 1 3/4 flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients slowly mixing between each addition.  Add in the last 1/4 cup of flour 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough is no longer sticky, but it is not crumbly. If the dough becomes crumbly, add water 1 teaspoon at a time and mix well until dough holds together again.
  • Stir in the cranberries and chocolate chips. Use two tablespoons of dough to make balls and place them on a cookie sheet spaced 2 in apart then slightly flatten them.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350˚F for 9-11 minutes or until the center is just set. DO NOT OVERBAKE! Let cool 2 minutes and then move to cooling rack to cool. Enjoy!
