Oatmeal Cranberry Almond White Chocolate Chip Chewies

Someone called me recently and asked if I'd be willing to be/can be  held accountable for the amount of cookies she eats when she makes one of the recipes from my blog. Ha, not a chance!! She had made the Oatmeal Chewies from a previous post and had also added raisins. So I got to thinking that by changing up the ingredients a bit you could make a Christmas cookie out of them, so I tried it last night. Verdict? Yes! Definitely delicious! and worth your time. At least in my opinion. ☺

Ingredient List:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats
1¾-2 cups all purpose flour (Gold Medal)
1 cup dried cranberries
¾-1 cup white chocolate chips
½ cup slivered almonds
Powdered Sugar

Size 30 cookie scoop.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a mixer bowl and beat till fluffy.

Add the next three ingredients and mix. Scraping down sides as needed for even mixing.

Mix in oatmeal.

Then add flour; mix.

Add the dried cranberries, white chocolate chips, and almonds. Mix again.

Scoop them with a size 30 cookie scoop and roll in the powdered sugar.

Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your fingers.

Bake @ 350° for 12-15 minutes. Don't over bake them if you want chewy cookies.  MMM, delicious!!

Enjoy and be blessed!
