The Absolute BEST, Most Divine, Decadent, Warm & Chewy Cookies on the Face of This Planet

My afternoon has been pretty awesome. The neighbor is on his riding lawn mower. There's no television playing. It has been a peaceful day.

This is what Marley is doing:

And, this is what Vincent is doing:

And, these are what I'm chowing down on:

I admit, I really didn't think these cookies were going to turn out as divine as they did. However, I think I could eat an entire batch in one sitting!! I found the recipe on the back of a dried cranberry package and I was inspired when I realized I had all of the ingredients needed. So, if anyone else wants to experience The Absolute BEST, Most Divine, Decadent, Warm & Chewy Cookies on the Face of This Planet, here's the recipe.

Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies


  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats  (I used rolled oats.)
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 5 oz. package of Craisins Dried Cranberries (I used the cherry infused ones.)
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips (All I had on hand was dark chocolate and they're still awesome!) 

Preheat oven to 375° F. Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2-1/2 dozen cookies.

All credit for this recipe goes to Craisins, from the back of the bag! 

Tip: After the first cookie sheet was finished and I realized the cookies didn't flatten out a bit, I mashed them down with a fork to give them more of a cookie look. Hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as I did!
