Day Five: Cranberry Oatmeal Chip Cookies

This is Day Five in a 10 day series featuring homemade gifts. Click here to start reading at the beginning of the series.


Who doesn’t love to receive fresh, homemade baked goods, especially during the holiday season? This is the time of year when every cook pulls out her favorite recipes and starts her oven. One of our favorite things to give during the Christmas season is a plate of homemade cookies. Besides being delicious, these cranberry and white chocolate cookies are so festive and pretty! Mom has made them for years and years, but originally she found the recipe on a bag of dried cranberries. Image

Assemble ingredients. The large bowl contains butter and brown sugar, and the smaller bowl contains all our dry ingredients mixed together. The smallest bowl holds our dried cranberries, and the measuring cup has white chocolate chips. IMG_0951
