Whew! As much fun as Thanksgiving cooking was, I’m actually kind of glad to switch over to other late-autumn treats (if you’re looking for some good leftover turkey ideas, check out the leftover panini recipes on my other food blog – Panini Happy). Cookies call my name all year round, and as we enter part 2 of “the holidays” I find oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks especially irresistible.

Food Blogga Cookie LogoThis recipe makes a good number of cookies (especially if you make them a little on the small side, like I did) which makes it possible to eat a few out of the oven, save a few to have around the house and still have enough left over to freeze and share later. At least that was my original intent – I have to admit I’ve already tapped into the “freeze and share later” stash. I’m hopeless!

I’m submitting these cookies to the Eat Christmas Cookies roundup on Food Blogga. Have Christmas cookies you’d like to share? You can find out how to participate here.

These would have been great to submit to the Cookie Challenge… you’ll have to do that next time she does cranberries!

I’m not familiar with the Cookie Challenge – what is it? Sounds like something I’d enjoy!

Your not allowed to blog about the item you submit prior to the submission date (Dec. 1st) but she might make an exception for a new guest!!! I’d love to see these cookies in there!! 🙂

There aren’t enough cranberries in cookies these days. I love the idea of the oatmeal with them.

Now that is a nice cookie!

I made these cookies today- because I have yet to find the perfect oatmeal cookie recipe- and I thought these were great. I made some substitutions because I didn’t have cranberries or white chocolate on hand. I instead added cinnamon to the oats and flour mixture and threw in cinnamon chips instead. YUM! I can’t wait to make the cookies as is!

Glad you liked them! I still haven’t tried cinnamon chips but I bet they’d be good in this recipe.

I would have tapped into the “freeze and share” stash too. Who could resist such a deliciously chunky, bumpy cookie? And I love your little Christmas Chinese take out box. I got a few at Target, and these make perfect gift boxes. Thanks, Kathy!

Not sure which I like best: this recipe, the styling or your photography. Cookies are so hard to shoot (in my opinion), but you managed to not only MAKE cookies that look great, but style & shoot them in an appetizing manner to boot!

These cookies look SO good- I love the white chocolate/dried cranberry combo. And I love your blog- I usually ignore the recipes on the back of the box, but you make them look so appetizing- I need to try more of them!

I made this today. I added vanilla extract, orange rind and a bit of dark chocolate as well…It tasted good…..Without vanilla extract, i felt it was a bit eggy…..Thanks for the recipe.

I love this recipe! They tastes kind if funny though so I added more sugar and they taste great!
