Cranberry Hootycreeks

2008-01-18@13-55-17
Cranberry Hootycreeks are the most amazing cookie. Yummm…white chocolate and cranberries. For us, the ingredients take a bit of planning since they are not all available here, but this cookie is worth the wait.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5/8 cup all-purpose flour (5/8 = 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (chopped candy bar)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, beat together 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until fluffy. Mix well with dry ingredients. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges start to brown. Cool on baking sheets, or remove to cool on wire racks. Devour.

    If you like these cookies you might like cranberry oatmeal cookies. Take a standard oatmeal cookie recipe. Substitute the cranberries for raisins. I also like to add chocolate chips.

    Another cookie you might enjoy is the infamous Neiman Marcus Cookie.

    (Recipe may be halved):
    2 cups butter
    4 cups flour
    2 tsp. soda
    2 cups sugar
    5 cups blended oatmeal**
    24 oz. chocolate chips
    2 cups brown sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
    4 eggs
    2 tsp. baking powder
    2 tsp. vanilla
    3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

    **Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey Bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.

    Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.

    This cookie became a family favorite 10 years ago. I like to use Ghirardelli Chocolate chips either the dark or milk chocolate.

  • Thanks Resa for the tips & cookie recipe. We’ll definitely be bringing back pounds and pounds of cranberries.
