Happy Tuesday! Does it not feel like Wednesday today? It definitely does around here. Isn’t it the worst waking up and realizing it’s not Wednesday or Thursday…or Saturday, for that matter?
Even though I woke up and realized it was Tuesday, I still had one thing on my mind: cookies. Who am I kidding? Cookies are always on my mind.
Not gonna lie, I was pretty darn excited when I concocted this recipe in my head. I mixed everything together, scooped ‘em out and into the oven they went.
Then I got nervous when they didn’t spread. But then I realized I only included baking soda and these were a tidbit healthier than normal cookies. Then I remembered these are jam-packed with white chocolate chips. Still healthy, right?
As soon as these came out of the oven and I shoved on in my mouth, I knew these were winners. They’re stuffed with cranberries, white chocolate chips, and other amazing things.
Just an FYI, these do NOT rise. They’re just mounds of goodness.
Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Stuffed Cookies
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and applesauce until fluffy. Add vanilla, egg and canola oil and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and oats. With mixer on low, slowly beat in batches of dry mixture into wet mixture until well combined. Fold in cranberries, walnuts and white chocolate chips. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat or grease it. Scoop out tablespoon-sized cookie onto baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden.
Just so you know, these are addicting. But they’re worth it.
