cranberry white chocolate cookie

Happy holidays everyone! I hope you’re able to take some time off to spend with friends and family. I am on winter break from school, and my husband and I are spending the holidays with my in-laws. Yesterday I baked cranberry white chocolate cookies, which turned out wonderful, so I want to share this recipe with you! It’s super easy and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

IMG_4234In a large bowl, add butter, white sugar and brown sugar.

IMG_4243Mix well until smooth.

IMG_4250In the same large bowl, add eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Mix well.
Next, add the flour/oat mixture (from the medium sized bowl) and stir to combine.

IMG_4258Add cranberries and white chocolate. Walnuts optional. I made two batches, one with walnuts and one without.

IMG_4268Use a tablespoon or ice cream scooper to spoon cookie dough onto baking sheets. My dough size was 1.5-2 tablespoon, which made 4 dozen cookies. Bake for 12-15 minutes (adjust to cookie size) until edges are golden.
