Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Jody Ayers


We love anything cranberry and these cookies are by far the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. They are quick, easy and a single recipe makes at least 4 dozen 2-3 inch cookies. They are perfect for the little helpers to assist with in the kitchen. They would also be great for cookie exchanges and I think Santa may even find a few on his plate this year.

How to Make Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together until creamy.
  3. Add eggs and Vanilla and mix well. Meanwhile, in another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to creamed sugar and egg mixture and mix well.
