White Chocolate-Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie

This one is all Ms. ChinaNob – all I contributed was my sweet tooth.  I could eat these until I stuffed myself so round I looked like a weeble-wobble.   The addition of the whole wheat pastry flour gave it a nice crumb, almost like a scone.  On top of vanilla ice cream, these might be induce hallucinations.

White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup dried cranberries
4 oz. white chocolate chips or chopped bar
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375F.  In a large bowl, using electric mixer, cream together sugar, brown sugar and butter.  Stir in egg and vanilla until combined.  Add cinnamon, baking soda, salt & flour and mix well.  Finally, fold in the oatmeal, cranberries, walnuts and chocolate chips.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 inches apart on baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool 2-3 minutes on sheet, then transfer to cooling rack until cookies have firmed up.  Then attempt to eat only one.  Cry as you fail.  Eat another cookie to compensate for unworthy feelings.  Repeat as necessary.
