oatmeal cranberry cookies

You're about to witness a rare sight: Chelle in the kitchen! I will be the first to admit that I'm not the most domestic person, but I'm slowly learning how to cook meals and bake desserts. Personally, I have taken a liking to baking, probably due to my sweet tooth. Each year around Christmas I attempt to make these delicious oatmeal cranberry cookies (with a secret ingredient of white chocolate chips!). They turned out the best ever this year, and they're a huge hit in my family! Crisp and golden on the outside, yet soft and delicious on the inside, these babies are worth the extra calories as a perfect after-dinner treat. Give them a try, you won't regret it! You can find the recipe I use here at food.com

Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

A few of my own tricks: Use a pinch of extra cinnamon, add in an extra egg yolk, and soak the dried cranberries in hot water for 10 mins and strain before folding them into your dough. Mm, delicious!
