CRANBERRY ORANGE PECAN OATMEAL COOKIES

A flavorful oatmeal cookie packed with flavors from cranberry, pecans, and orange zest topped with a melted white chocolate drizzle.

This recipe for Cranberry Orange Pecan Oatmeal Cookies is a recipe that I created a few months ago and would love to share  with you.

Each year, I always try to create a new recipe for Christmas to add to the usual 10 or 12 kinds that I make.  This is the first time that I started with an oatmeal cookie base.

I added the cranberries, pecans, and orange zest to a basic oatmeal recipe. This combination of flavors just seem to melt in your mouth.

Scoop dough into balls and place on baking sheet. 

Bake and transfer to a cooling rack.

Melt white chocolate baking discs and drizzle over the cookies.

I actually tested this recipe the first time,  by chopping the white chocolate discs and baked them in the dough.

The cookie was delicious,  but my family preferred having the white chocolate drizzled over the cookie.

  1. This recipe is delicious! I substituted 1 full cup of raw honey for sugar and used imitation vanilla (because we are on a budget), as well as 2 and 1/2 cups of fresh cranberries instead of dried, and crushed walnuts instead of pecans. I beat everything by hand. DELICIOUS, THANK YOU.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments. Your adjustments absolutely sound wonderful. I actually made some yesterday and used fresh cranberries and pecans in them too! I think of recipes as just a guideline and we can adjust them to what works for our families. I always love when people give me new ideas on recipes.
