White chocolate Cranberry & Coconut Oatmeal cookies

Christmas is all about gifting to friends and family. With just a few more days to go, I am planning to share a few cake and cookie recipes here and this is first of the lot. My husband is a big fan of coconuts in cookies while the kid loves white chocolate. As for me I have been wanting to make oatmeal cookies for a long time and so I incorporated all three, added some cranberries to overcome the sweetness and a teeny bit of lemon zest for some freshness. These taste delicious and make perfect holiday gifts.

Prep time: 15 mins; Baking time: 12 mins; Makes - 18 cookies

~*What U Need*~
Unsalted butter - 1/4 cup, room temp
All purpose flour - 3/4 cup
Old fashioned oats - 3/4 cup
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
White sugar - 1/4 cup
Egg - 1/2 of an egg
Lemon zest - 1/4 tsp
Dried Cranberries - 1/4 cup
White chocolate chips - 1/4 cup
Coconut flakes - 1/4 cup

How I Made it:
Preheat the oven to 350F. In a bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, and baking soda; set aside. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add egg, lemon zest, and mix well. Add the flour mixture and gently mix till you see no traces of flour.

Gently fold in the coconut and white chocolate chips and cranberries. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form 1 tbsp balls, flatten it a bit and bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool for 2 minutes before using a spatula to move onto a cooling rack. Repeat with the entire batch.

Serve with a glass of milk.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
