Calories 210kcal


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ uncooked quick cook oats
  • 1 ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup pecan pieces
  • 12 ounces white chocolate like Lindt, Ghirardelli or Scharffenberger
  • About ¾ cups crushed pecans to decorate the cookies optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a medium bowl, stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix to combine.
  • In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix just until the cookie dough comes together, and the ingredients are well combined.
  • Add the oats, cranberries and pecan pieces and stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • With a small ice cream scoop or with 2 spoons, scoop round balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Each ball of dough should be about 1 large tablespoon in size.
  • Bake the cookies for 8 to 9 minutes. The cookies may look a little undercooked in the center, but they will continue to firm up as they cool. Do not over bake.
  • When the baking is done, remove the cookies from the oven and allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheets for about 2 minutes, then remove them to a cooling rack.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Once the cookies are completely cool, cut the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a small bowl.
  • Dip only half of each cookie, one at a time, into the chocolate and gently shake to remove excess chocolate.
  • Set the cookies on parchment paper to dry and sprinkle with crushed pecans, if desired.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Cookies are best for 2-3 days.
