One Christmas soon after my husband and I got married I received a subscription to Gourmet magazine as gift from my dad and his wife.In the holiday cookie issue there was a recipe for Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I loved the idea of traditional cranberries and the red and white color for a holiday cookie, so I decided to give it a try.
From that time on Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies have become a tradition in our family. Christmas is the only time of year I make this particular cookie and for that reason it is a special treat we look forward to.
This year for the first time I was unable to locate this favorite recipe from Gourmet magazine. Should have scanned it! Lesson learned, but I did not want to go without making this cookie so I decided to give the Ocean Spray recipe a try.
The cookies came out more cake like than the thinner chewy version I usually make. It is all about personal preference here so depending on how you like your cookies this might be a recipe you would adore.
