This year, I am SO ready for holiday baking. In the beginning of this month, I slowly started stocking up on baking supplies from Aldi –hands down they’re the cheapest! Last year, I started out late and I kept forgetting essential items like powdered sugar or baking chocolate. Not happening this year!
One item that I’ve recently fallen in love with is the cookie scoop. I have one in small and medium for perfect sized cookies every time. Paired with parchment paper sheets, my cookie game is on point!
The key to perfect cookies is following the directions! Most recipes, you must cream together the sugar and butter. This is essential…see the photo above how smooth the batter is!
Bite-sized oatmeal pecan cookies with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries...yum!
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 350º. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir with a fork and set aside.
Using a stand or hand mixer, add butter and sugars to the bowl. Mix on medium until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time. Finally add vanilla extract.
Slowly pour in flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
Stir in oatmeal, white chips, pecan and dried cranberries. Batter will be thick.
Using a small cookie scoop, place onto cookie sheet in rows of 4. 16 should fit a regular cookie sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until brown. DO NOT OVERCOOK.
Store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
These cookies freeze well. Just place on cookie sheet and freeze instead of baking!
