White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Meet the perfect fall cookie or the cookie with the longest title ever, whichever you prefer. Now that you have met, let me tell you a little about these little gems. A few years ago before I even knew the world of food blogging existed, my sister made these cookies for a family event. After my first bite, they were one of my favorite cookies ever, and also had a combination of flavors that I thought were to die for. When I asked her where the recipe had come from it opened my eyes to one of my now favorite sites. Since I have known about these for so long, I was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to make them. I saw that the cookie jar was empty and also I had some dried cranberries in the pantry, it was time.

When I told Blair about these cookies, his nose wrinkled, and I thought oh great I will just have to eat all of them myself. What a tragedy! Too bad that when they were fresh out of the oven and he had taken his first nibble, he was immediately hooked. Did I mention that our house smelled absolutely amazing too? I ended up freezing about 12 dough balls to make at a later date, which happened to be last weekend. Turns out it was so nice to have the option of some freshly baked cookies from the freezer. I think I might try that out some more in the future.

Just a little something that I would like to point out. For the past few months I have been using Google docs to create a printable version of each recipe for you, thank goodness some of my blogging friends showed me an easier way. At the bottom of each post, you will now see a green printer-friendly button that you can use to print out recipes. You have the option of removing the images as well. This makes my life much easier!

    I make a version of these as well around the holidays. Try substituting 1 1/2 tablespoons of orange peel instead of the cinnamon. I also use fresh cranberries when available. This is an added step (quartering them and rinsing the seeds), but well worth it. I may need to bake some soon!

  2. I love these cookies too, I make a similar version around Christmas! I freeze balls of dough all the time, I love having the ability to eat a freshly baked cookie whenever I want. :)
