I just love the many flavors and textures in these Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.
So we had “the talk” with our 9-year-old twins last week. No, not that “talk.” The one about Santa.
We figured it was coming this year because last year one was asking a lot of questions, and the other one was holding on strong. What's funny, though, is that weren't upset about who's really buying and bringing the presents. They were fine with that part.
You know what bothered them? They were truly irritated to learn that my husband and I had been eating the cookies year after year!
If the Santa in your house wants something special this year, bake up some Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies to leave out on Christmas Eve. They're chewy, filled with texture and flavor, and they smell like cinnamon. All good things, in my opinion. And “Santa” will love them.

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
To get the fancy look with the white chocolate drizzle–which I wanted since I took these to a cookie swap–just melt some additional chocolate chips. Pour into a small zipper baggie and cut off the tip. Drizzle across the cooled cookies. The melted chocolate will harden quickly.
These cookies aren't much harder to make than regular oatmeal cookies, but they're so decadent. I just love the combination of chew and texture with the addition of the smooth white chocolate chips and the chewy dried cranberries.
The tartness, sweetness, salt and cinnamon is another flavor combo that makes me happy. I will admit to enjoying a cookie each morning with my hot tea. Yum!
