Lace oatmeal cranberry and almond cookies

As a child I never ate oatmeal cookies and the first time I made them was for a gift to a friend. It was then that I fell in love with the deliciousness of oatmeal cookies.


  • 3 packs of instant oatmeal
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1-cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1-teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1- cup of flour
  • 1-teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or cherries
  • ¼ cup whole roasted unsalted almonds
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix the butter and the sugar together. You can use your hands to cream it if you don’t have a kitchen aid mixer.
  • Next use a spatula or your mixer and add in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Once the egg and vanilla is mixed in well add the oatmeal packets, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Mix everything well.
  • Last fold in the cranberries, almonds and white chocolate chips (if you desire).
  • Lightly roll the cookies into 2” balls make sure to generously space them out, as they will spread a lot.
