Gourmet Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Cookies

Updated on January 30, 2012

Gourmet Cookie Recipe

Cranberry Walnut Cookies

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

1 Tablespoon Rum Extract

6 oz. / 1 Cup Dried Cranberries

2 Eggs Well Beaten

Soak Cranberries in above mixture at room temperature for 30 minutes.

In a separate bowl combine:

2 ½ Sticks Real Butter (room temp – do not melt)

1 ½ Cups Brown Sugar

2 ½ Teaspoons Cinnamon

½ Teaspoon Ginger

½ Teaspoon Nutmeg

Blend well with mixer. Add:

1 ½ Cup Self-Rising Flour (if you use all purpose, also add 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda)

3 Cups Old Fashion Oatmeal (not instant)

1 ½ Cups Chopped Walnuts

Egg/Cranberry Mixture from Above

Stir in with wooden / heavy spoon until well blended.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a greased cookie sheet, place golf ball sized dough balls and then press down to form a “patty.” Bake for 12-15 minutes (or until edges are dark golden brown). Remove from the oven and let cool ON THE COOKIE SHEET (the heat from the sheet will finish cooking the middle).


Melt white chocolate chips on the stove or in the microwave. Using a spoon, spread melted chocolate on the bottom of the cookies then place chocolate side down on waxed paper. Drizzle zig-zags over the top and let cool.

Yields 2 ½ dozen large cookies OR 1 dozen colossal sized cookies.

      This recipe sounds great. I like the idea of cranberries in oatmeal cookies.

      I am adding this to my Recipe Index for HubPages.

      Thanks, um fella! :) I read a couple of your hubs -- impressive start! I hope your fiance will bake you some cookies - when I make them, I have to make sure that I am going somewhere so that I can deliver batches around (otherwise, I'll make myself sick eating them!) They are delicious!
