Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Macadamia Chip Cookies + a Giveaway!

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

I was perusing Pinterest the other night when I started coming upon a bunch of different holiday cookies. Most of them were your typical peppermint chocolate chip cookies or maybe even mint ones that were green in color. This got me thinking... what kind of cookies haven't I had in a while but would love to try? And the answer was something with white chocolate chips (my recent fave!) and dried cranberries! I typed in the search bar "cranberry white chocolate chip cookies" and up came this recipe. Let me tell you. It DOES NOT disappoint. I measured out all of the ingredients that we would need and then I let Mason help me mix the ingredients (he actually did a GREAT job!) but then I put them on the cookie sheet myself (I did learn something from the last time). He was SO excited to help that he ran and got the chair from the dining area and brought it into the kitchen all by himself. I don't know what's gotten into him lately but he totally has the baking bug and is totally the best helper!

  1. MMMMmmmmm!!!! These are one of my favorite. I love that you used oatmeal in them. I haven't tried them like that before. I also love that Mason was busy helping you out in the kitchen. He makes a great assistant!

  2. I have a recipe similar to this that I love!!!! In fact, I posted it on my blog once, but the girl who gave me the recipe asked me to take it down. Boo.

  3. So, because there is oatmeal in these, does it mean it's totally ok to have them with my morning pot of coffee? Because I need these in my life, and I'm pretty sure I'd have no issue polishing off a half a dozen with a good hot cup of joe.

  4. Okay, I'm going to need to try these!! I have developed a new love of all things cranberry. And I already love white chocolate, so these are a no-brainer right? And healthy too, yes? HA!

  5. Talk about a cookie with everything delicious in it! Brian would kill for these ;)

  6. We were totally sharing a cookie brain this month! I love oatmeal cookies so I think I'd love your version too!

  7. Oh yum! Now I'm drooling all over my keyboard. I love that Mason helped! I really need to start baking more with the kids.

  8. You are totally speaking to my heart with these cookies! My three favorite things in a cookie are oatmeal, cranberries, and white chocolate chips. I cannot wait to make these this season! Thank you so much for sharing this.

  9. These look so yummy!! And they seem like the perfect cookie to bring to Thanksgiving. You've got a cute little baker in training. Seems like he was having a blast helping out :)

  10. Yep! Those sound delicious. And now I want cookies, soooo bad!
