All About Me...In 30 Days!

all about me
Day 24 - a recipe...

I LOVE this cookie recipe! It is from Ocean Spray and I usually see it in magazines in the corner of an advertisement for their dried cranberries around the Christmas season. I love to make this recipe, eat these cookies and sometimes, I will even share these cookies. I am actually making them this weekend! Some of my girlfriends and my mom are coming over for an "Ugly Christmas Sweater and Cookie Bake-n-Swap" party! Fun, fun, fun! I'm sure I will have picture proof of our "ugly" sweaters to post after the grand event!
Now the only change I make to the original recipe, is that I swap out the white chocolate chips for semi sweet chocolate chips...since I'm not a white chocolate fan. :)



2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 6-ounce package Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)


Preheat oven to 375ºF.

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.
