WCCCO Cookies {White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies}

The BEST white chocolate chip cranberry oatmeal cookies!

Yay, it’s Friday! It’s also my mister’s 27th birthday! At midnight, I told him “Happy first birthday as my husband!” Then I proceeded to tell him how he’s old and how he’s lucky to have a beautiful, younger (by 5 months) wife. 

Now, onto this week’s recipe! Sometimes I get winded saying the name of these amazingly delicious cookies. White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal cookies is quite the mouthful. Which is why I think I’ll just start calling them WCCCO cookies. I’ve been making these for a couple years and I’ve yet to find someone who doesn’t loooove them. They even turned a non-cookie lover into a WCCCO cookie lover. That’s right– I convert people with these cookies.

Here’s what you’ll need!

quick oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, 1 egg, baking soda, butter, salt, brown sugar, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries (not pictured: vanilla extract)

Combine 1/2 c. butter (softened), 1/4 c. brown sugar, 3/4 c. sugar with an electric mixer
Have I mentioned that I L-O-V-E my new KitchenAid mixer? LOVE!

Add 1 egg and 1/2 teas. vanilla extract

Add 1/2 teas. cinnamon, 1/2 teas. baking soda, 1/4 teas. salt, and 1 c. all-purpose flour

Fold in 1 1/2 c. quick-oats (not instant), 3/4 c. dried cranberries, 1 1/4 c. white chocolate chips

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, placing about 3 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet (or in my case, parchment paper). Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes– just until the edges are lightly golden.

  1. Oh, you beautiful woman, you! I’m not joking when I say I’ve been missing this recipe for YEARS. 5 or 6 years ago, my neighbor brought me a plate of the most delicious cookies, with cranberries and white chocolate chips . . . and I was an idiot and didn’t ask for the recipe before I moved away. Every year or so I remember them and google around to find a recipe, but haven’t found any that looked quite right. This looks JUST like those cookies! I can’t wait to try them! And hopefully my husband won’t eat ALL of them this time 😉

  2. I have made these cookies before, and you are right. I have never met anyone that doesn’t like them! I think they are addicting. I can’t wait to try your recipe. I linked to you from Sweet Tooth Friday!

  9. I have a stockpile of red, green, and white swirl white chocolate chips I got on clearance after Christmas and had a hankerin’ for some cookies tonight. I searched through Pinterest and came across this recipe. I loved that it was a no chill dough and had simple ingredients. They were quick to whip up, and turned out wonderfully! Great recipe 🙂

  10. I just made these cookies, but I substitiuted gluten free flour for the all-purpose. I brought some still warm cookies to my daughter’s softball practice and all the mothers ate them before the girls could get any. They were a huge hit and most of the mom’s couldn’t believe they were gluten-free. The cranberries add just enough tang to off-set the sweet. Great recipe thanks!!

  11. I have made these many times as cookies or bars and often add chopped macadamia nuts….they are great!

  12. I made these today and they were soooo good. I made half the badge with chocolate (because my mom can’t eat chocolate) and the rest with chocolate and WOW, Were they yummy! I did add an extra tablespoon of brown sugar. Next time I’m totally doing these with almond for a little extra crunch. Thank you for sharing your recepie!

  13. These are the best cookies!!!
