Day 2: Triple Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies





Day 2 of my 12 days of cookies: Triple Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. Yeeeeesh. How long can a cookie’s name get? That’s okay, because these cookies will leave you speechless anyways.
These cookies were a hit! Best eaten the day of. The mixture of the three chocolates fuse together with the dried cranberries. It may seem like a lot of mix-ins, but it really doesn’t take away from the cookie dough itself. I haven’t made oatmeal cookies in so long that I almost forgot how good they were. Thanks for the reminder, Epicurious! These cookies get that beautiful golden trim around the outside, with a hearty and chewy inside. Under bake them a bit for a chewier bite (like I do)!
I really love this time of the year. The internet explodes with plenty of desserts and food porn. It seems as if December is when bloggers try to bake as many sweets as possible, leaving me drooling all over my computer screen. It’s also my favorite time of the year because I get to watch Love Actually everyday and not seem like a crazy person. Although, I’m pretty sure my DB hid it somewhere from me to stop me from playing it so much. What can I say… It’s the perfect Christmas movie! I adore everything about it. What are your favorite holiday movies?

    These look so yummy. These will be one of my 12 days of baking. I hope mine look half as good as yours-My cookies never flatten beautifully like yours. Merry Christmas Kim.

    Long time reader of your blog and this is my first time to comment! :) I love your blog!

    White chocolate cranberry cookies are such a big hit with my boyfriend. He loves them! This variation would be great to try!

    I love Love Actually! It’s one of my favorite holiday movies next to Elf. hehe. Will Farrell is so cute/funny in that movie! It seems like you have great taste in movies (I love 500 Days of Summer too! I’ve watched it so many times, it’s great!)

    Happy Holidays!

    Thanks for the recipe! But I’ll leave it for after Christmas. I have to stop eating sweets or I won’t be able to wear anything by then…

    I love FAMILY STONE! Such a great film for Christmas… I watch every year since it was released.

    Happy Holidays!

    I found these last year during your 12 Days of Baking. I tried them and instantly fell in love! They’re like a warm hug for my stomach. :D I even managed to teach them to a friend… and she’s never baked a cookie in her life!

    Thanks so much for passing along this little gem. It’s definitely become a Christmas staple at my house.
