Delicious oatmeal cookie recipe made with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Perfect after school snack or dessert. A simple DIY recipe tutorial!
Oatmeal cookies are what I grew up on. Every time I visited my grandma’s house she greeted us with a fresh batch, and my mom was always making them so we’d have a treat in our lunch boxes.
Times haven’t changed. Now my mom makes oatmeal cookies for all of our family get-togethers and I like to bake them for my own kids to put in their lunches!
2 1/4 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Oatmeal
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 cup Butter flavored Shortening
½ cup Evaporated Milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup White Chocolate Chips
¾ cup whole dried Cranberries
I use Bob’s Red Meal Quick Cooking Rolled Oats. All Bob’s Red Mill oats are kiln roasted to give them that delicious wholesome flavor. You can learn more about Bob’s Red Mill by visiting their website, and you can even print a coupon to be used in-store.
In a large bowl stir together with a spoon the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Add Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Oatmeal.
Stir till well combined.
In mixing bowl cream the brown sugar, white sugar and shortening together.
In a liquid measuring glass, add evaporated milk, lemon juice, vanilla, and eggs. Stir.
Add liquid in measuring glass to the mixing bowl and combine on low-medium speed until well mixed.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients from the large mixing bowl into the mixing bowl mixture on low-medium speed until well mixed.
Add chocolate chips and dried cranberries to the cookie dough mixture.
Gently stir until well combined.
Drop cookie dough by the spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees. Watch the edges of the cookie. When they begin to brown they are finished baking.
Yields about 3 dozen cookies depending on the size of your spoonfuls.
These cookies really are so good!
While a fresh out of the oven cookie is delicious with a glass of milk, I think these cookies taste even better the next day after they have cooled and sat. I think the flavors are much stronger.
The white chocolate chips and cranberries add a yummy twist to the classic oatmeal cookie.
