  • ½ cup butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats not quick or instant
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees with the rack in the center. Prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper or spraying with non-stick spray.
  • Beat the butter, sugars, and egg in a large bowl using an electric mixer, on medium, about 3-5 minutes, until smooth and slightly fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix thoroughly. Add to the butter & sugar mixture one cup at a time, blending on low. Stir just until the dry ingredients are mixed in, being careful not to over mix. Add the oats, white chocolate chips, and dried cranberries and mix on low until just combined.
  • Scoop dough by tablespoon-sized scoops and place on preparing baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Press the cookie dough down slightly to flatten into discs. (If you prefer very thick, rounded cookies, you can skip the flattening step!)
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown on the edges. Cool on wire rack. Cookies will stay fresh, tightly covered, for about 3 days at room temperature.


To freeze cookies, either freeze after fully baked and cooled, or freeze the balls of dough and bake straight from frozen, adding a minute or two to the baking time.
Dark chocolate chips instead, of addition to, the white chocolate chips, are delicious!
