Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate, Dried Cranberries, & Walnuts

Happy Saturday, everyone! =]

Around this time of the year, I usually like to bake my Kris Kringle cookies with white chocolate, dried cranberries, and walnuts.  This past week I encountered a similar recipe on two peas & their pod that included oatmeal, but no I thought, why not throw all the ingredients together?  I'd say they turned out pretty awesome!  I love nuts in EVERYTHING (no jokes please) but if you're allergic to nuts, feel free to omit them from the recipe.

Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate, Dried Cranberries, & Walnuts

½ c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 egg 
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. oats
1 cup of dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 cup of white chocolate chips

1 cup of chopped walnuts

Beat together the butter & sugars until smooth.  Next, add the egg & vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  Add this mixture slowly to the wet ingredients, mixing after every addition.  Finally, add the oats, dried cranberries, white chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts.  Your mixture should look something like this...

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
