This is the same method as making chocolate chips but the ingredients differ slightly and the flavour is really good.
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups sifted flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (quick cooking, not instant)
- 1 pkg. Cinnamon Chips (baking aisle in store)
- 1/3 cup white chocolate melting disks, chopped
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy (3-4 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time and add the vanilla. Beat well and scrape down the sides of the bowl often.
Combine the sifted flour and baking soda, beating well to combine (give it a couple of minutes), stir in the oats, cinnamon chips, chocolate and cranberries on low, just enough to combine.
On parchment lined cookie sheets, use a 1 tbsp. size scoop and put 6 on a tray. If using a convection oven, bake for 6 minutes, rotate the trays and bake a further 6 minutes. Let cool for a minute and then transfer to cooling racks. Repeat process until all cookies are baked. Makes 4 -4 1/2 doz. cookies.
Let cool and boy, of boy these are tasty.
Pour a cup of coffee or tea, invite a friend over (or not) and enjoy the lazy afternoon together.
