Triple-Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time

This is a decadent cookie for the holidays. I don't find the drizzle necessary as they are really beautiful without it. This is from Bon Appétit Magazine (December 2004) and is featured as part of their Christmas Cookies special. The ranges for chocolate chips and cranberries just depend on how loaded you want your cookie. (The original recipe calls for the max. amount but I find that a bit much.) You can add some orange zest to the batter for a little extra seasonal flavour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in large bowl until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and oats and stir until blended. Stir in all chocolate chips and cranberries.
  2. Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until edges are light brown, about 12-16 minutes (depending on how soft or crispy you want them). Cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool completely.
  3. (If drizzling: Stir chopped milk chocolate in top of double boiler until melted and smooth. Using small spoon, drizzle melted chocolate over cookies in zigzag pattern. Let stand until milk chocolate sets, about 1 hour. ).

These are a really good cookie, kinda of crisp/chewy, a nice presentation with the cranberries and the white chocolate drizzle. I didn't want to use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate, a baggie tends to blow out if the chocolate is too warm, so I dug out the turkey injector (minus the needle), filled it with the white chocolate & drizzled the cookies in no time at all. No mess or waste because of the rubber plunger, it worked great. Update, I took these to work, a co-worker took one bite, moaned and said "you have got to give me the recipe!"
