oatmeal-cookiesThese are my favorite cookies to make.  The cranberries are nice for the holidays, but the flavor in these are scrumptious all year ’round.  This is my own special take on a classic.

1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1+1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat together butter and sugars until creamy.

Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat together.

Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.  Mix well.

Add oatmeal.  Mix well.

Add cranberries and almonds.  Mix well.

Add white chocolate chips.  Mix.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake about 12-14  minutes.

Yummy! 

Warning: If you plan on eating some of these yourself, stash a few off to the side.  These have a way of magically disappearing off the plate very quickly…  😉
