Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a problem with chocolate chip cookies.  I love them.  They are my favorite.  I like them chewy though and not crispy.  My favorite way to make them is with oatmeal, a trick I learned from a friend because then they are even chewier.

These cookies have lots of goodies them.  And they are delicious!

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 
  • 1 cup craisins
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup sliced almonds

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.  Add one egg at a time and vanilla, blend well.  Pour the flour, oats, baking soda, & salt into the bowl and mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips, craisins, coconut, & almonds.

Drop by the tablespoonful full onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are just lightly browned.  Let them sit for a minute or 2 on the hot pan and removed, (this gives them time to firm up slightly so they don’t fall apart when they are piping hot).

This batch makes A LOT of cookies, about 30.  They are best cold, but I’m a cold chocolate chip cookie kinda gal.

  1. Ooo–yummy!!! I’m the only one in my family that likes coconut (and I LOVE it), so I’ll have to use the coconut because then there will be plenty of cookies for me because no one else will eat them! (big silly grin)
