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?
