Sometimes I forget how good oatmeal cookies are. Given the choice between oatmeal cookies or chocolate chip cookies I would always pick chocolate chip. The oatmeal always scared me away.
They are totally underrated though. Just because they say oatmeal doesn’t mean they’re all healthy and nasty.
These white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies are anything everything but nasty.
In fact these cookies are my new favorite cookies.
Moist chewy and rich. These cookies are so heavenly, I could’ve sat there and ate the whole tray.
But I was a good girl, and took some to work with me. My co-workers were very very happy.
These cookies also gave me a chance to put my new cookie jars to good use! I just love cookie jars, and aren’t these adorable? I couldn’t pass them up.
Please make these. They really are so amazing!
I’m sure Santa would put you on the nice list if you gave him these cookies! 😉
