Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies packed with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Feel free to add dried cherries or blueberries instead of cranberries or milk/dark chocolate instead of white.
14 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Zest of one medium orange
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cups dried cranberries
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
Add butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar to a large bowl. Use an electric mixer on medium speed and beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla extract and orange zest; beat well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add to butter mixture until mixed well. Stir in oats, cranberries and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons on to cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.
