These cookies are soft and chewy and loaded with white chocolate, dried cranberries, pecan and oats for a delicious holiday cookie!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the flour,oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl, set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Then add the egg and vanilla and mix together for 1-2 minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  4. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the mixer and mix until everything is well incorporated. Then fold in the chocolate, cranberries and pecans.
  5. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out even cookies and place them on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Let cool for 5 minute before removing the cookies from the pan.


Use rolled oats, not quick oats in these cookies. Rolled oats give the cookies that great chewy texture.

These cookies will spread a bit as you bake them, so make sure to leave enough space between the cookies on the baking sheet.

Depending on your oven, these cookies may need a couple fewer or more minutes to bake. Mine take 10 minutes exactly. You’ll know the cookies are done when they are slightly brown around the edges.
