White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

On a whim, I bought fresh cranberries at the grocery store this week.  I have never cooked with fresh cranberries  so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I decided to try them in cookies first.  So glad I did!!  These were so good we made them twice in one week.

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

1 stick of butter, softened *
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup oats (quick or old fashioned)
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup fresh cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (I used pecans, walnuts would be good too!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Mix in egg and vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients, mixing well.  Mix in oatmeal, chocolate chips, cranberries and nuts.  Scoop 1 inch balls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake 8 – 10 minutes.

*You can do a combination of butter and shortening (or coconut oil) to make crisper cookies.  Totally up to you.  I have made them both ways…and both are delicious.  However, the all butter recipe tends to freeze better.
