Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 12 mins

I took a chewy Cape Cod version of an oatmeal cookie recipe and substituted cranberries for the raisins, and added a few extra spices. A favorite at my house and easy to make! (These are a very chunky cookie.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Mix flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix together well.
  4. Drop by spoonful on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  5. Cool for 2 minutes and enjoy!
  6. (These are also very fab with dried cherries and chocolate chips! YUM!).

Great cookie! I followed the easy instructions and the cookies came out perfect. I really loved the cranberries replacing the usual raisins. Thanks Wendy for a good recipe.

Thanks for a great recipe. I had tried another oatmeal cookie and they seemed on the dry side. Yours are very good. Thanks

While I would give this cookie a five star for taste, I found the dough a little stiff and dry and my cookies came out kinda hunky,didn't really spread the way I like. I thought I was very careful about measuring out the dry ingredients?? The middles were soft but I prefer a cookie that is soft and moist all over with a little crispiness to the edges.Mine only needed 10 mins. any longer and they would have been very dry. I left out the nuts and added white chocolate chips. Very tasty just did not have the texture I like. Thanks for the recipe.
