Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies


I saw an Ocean Spray magazine ad for a non-gf version of these cookies recently. The cookies looked so good, I decided to try to make a GF version. My first attempt was successful and these cookies are as good as gluten! The flavor profiles of the dried cranberries, oats, and white chocolate come together quite nicely!

·⅔ cup butter, softened                                    ·1 tsp xanthan gum
·⅔ cup brown sugar                                           ·1 tsp baking soda
·2 large eggs                                                        ·½ tsp salt
·1½ cups old-fashioned oats                            ·6 ounces dried cranberries
·1 cup GF all-purpose baking flour                  ·⅔ cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375˚. Using an electric mixture, beat butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.

Drop teaspoon-sized balls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

Makes approximately 2 ½ dozen cookies.

Yum! I also love the white chocolate/cranberry/oat combination. The only way to make it better is to add macadamia nuts!
