Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Cookies

This post is sponsored in conjunction with ChristmasCookiesWeek . I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the ChristmasCookiesWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

These cookies are simply addicting. Do not underestimate these little gems! They are soft, chewy, and full of the flavors of the season: Oatmeal, cinnamon, cranberries, white chocolate chips, and nut, will make this the cookie of the season.  In fact I love them for breakfast!

I love these cookies so much , that I make a batch or two  of dough in November, form the cookie dough into the balls and flash freeze them on a pan (slightly flattening them like in the directions) until they are frozen and then packaging the frozen cookies in a freezer bag. Then I can just reach in and pull out however many I need / want to bake at a time, place on a pan to thaw for 15- 20 minutes till thawed and bake according to recipe directions. Makes for easy baking during the holidays when you need to bring treats at a moments notice.

I love to pair these cookies in a gift basket  with my Double Chocolate Cranberry Almond Bark. They make a great combo that is fun, festive, and tasty!



Jan's Tip; To help keep cookies light and fluffy, do not scoop up out your flour from a bag or container, as it will pack down and make a heavier cookie. The better option (but a bit more laborious.. but sooo worth it). it is to use a measuring spoon and spoon out your flour a little at a time, then level off the measuring cup carefully, trying not to pack down the flour as you do it. This really does help keep your cookies light. (Since none of use an old fashioned sifter anymore do we??)
