  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped cashews


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter, vanilla, and eggs with a whisk or hand beater until well mixed and fluffy.

  4. Add the creamed mixture and the cranberries, white chocolate chips, and cashews to the flour mixture. Stir together gently until the ingredients are well mixed.

  5. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or just until the edges begin to turn golden. Let the cookies cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before removing them, and then let them finish cooling on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container for up to one week - but ours have never lasted that long!

Recipe Notes

Because these cookies have so many tasty little morsels in them, you may need to get in there with clean hands to get the dough to mix together completely.
