Makes 12 smallish cookies, 9 larger ones
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
Cost: $1.75 for batch
1/3 C butter, melted (you can get away with 1/4 C, but you'll have to reduce the oats a bit)
1/3 C brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 C oats
1/8-1/4 C white chocolate chips
1/4 C dried cranberries
Combine butter with sugar and mix in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, and baking soda. Mix that in with the wet ingredients. Add oats (I use quick). The mixtures will be quick thick. Add white chocolate chips and cranberries and mix those in (don't be afraid to use your hand to mash them in if you need to).
Plop dough onto cookie sheet and smash it a bit as it won't spread during baking. Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes depending on how crispy you like your oatmeal cookies (we like ours soft and went the 8 minute route). Note: We made large cookies. If making small ones, you'll want to reduce the baking time a tad.
