Triple Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal (cinnamon chip) Cookies!

Whew. What a name!

These cookies are from Bon Appetit & they were recently featured on several blogging websites for the “12 days of Christmas cookies” series. YUM! I decided to try them ~ I figured that the tart cranberries & sweet chips would be a great combo. I had a few left over cinnamon chips (from my pumpkin craze a few weeks back) so I threw those in too. I would HIGHLY recommend adding the cinnamon chips to the recipe. You only need a 1/4 c. to make a difference. These did not last long in our household!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2  cup extra dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon chips
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped  fresh or frozen cranberries (chop in a food processor)
  • 2 ounces milk chocolate or white chocolate, chopped (for drizzling, if desired I omitted this b/c I was lazy & didn’t have time to let the chocolate set)

Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350.Whisk together the dry ingredients. In a large bowl (or stand mixer) beat together the sugars & butter, add eggs one at a time, and vanilla. Add in the dry mixture until just incorporated. Stir in all of the chips & cranberries by hand.

Drop these by large teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on the sheets. Bake one at a time for approx 13 minutes. The recipe says to bake Tbsp sized cookies for 16 minutes…. I like my cookies smaller & softer 🙂 so my timing ended up being a bit less! Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Cool completely (and then drizzle with melted chocolate if desired). ENJOY! (makes about 55 cookies if you make them in “brit size” vs. Bon size 🙂

These cookies were incredibly moist. And the balance of the richness (cinnamon) tartness (cranberries) sweetness (white chocolate) and bitterness (super dark chocolate) was just AMAZING! Give them a try~ they were actually better than I thought they would be… and Steve liked them too!
