Merry Christmas Eve my lovely readers!
I hope your Christmas Eve (and Christmas) are beautiful and I hope you get to drink lots of wine. Or eggnog if that’s your thing.
I really recommend the wine…
These cookies are really special ♥
They have tons of cranberries and white chocolate in them, and I promise you, they do not taste like raisins.
Raisins=no but craisins=yes.
Especially with white chocolate in oatmeal cookies.
When I was really little, and my mom and one of her best friends (whose recipe this is) would make the oatmeal cookies around Christmas time. And I would watch. And color my coloring books. And help when they would let me. These cookies were always one of my favorites, but my dad’s favorite is chocolate chip, and he would normally win the cookie battle when my mom asked, “What kind of cookies should I make?”. Anyway, this year I decided to make them and add the white chocolate and cranberries, since it’s Christmas and all.
I’ll be taking a blogging break tomorrow, but I want to leave you with a few more recipes in case you want to make some last minute cookies tomorrow, or even After Christmas cookies!
(After Christmas cookies are definitely a thing).
1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar–packed
1 small package instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 c. oats
1 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375* F. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Cream butter, sugars, and pudding together in a separate bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in oats, white chocolate chips, and cranberries. Scoop in to 1 inch balls and bake for 10-12 minutes. They will seem very soft, so let them cool slightly on the baking sheet before removing. Enjoy!
I just love how pretty and festive they are, plus they’re sooo good.
Have a beautiful, wonderful, amazing Christmas.
