Pumpkin Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

These cookies are like all the best parts of fall rolled into one delicious cookie! Pumpkin, oatmeal, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips all make an appearance in these cookies. I have to admit, I found this recipe as an effort to clear out some space in the pantry. We had a giant can of old-fashioned oats and a big bag of Craisins that have been taking up valuable space! I searched for oatmeal + craisins in the Pinterest search box, and voila!

Here is the original photo from Annie's Eats of the original cookies.

And here is the recipe...

2 c. flour

2 t. cinnamon
3/4 t. ginger
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cloves
1 dash allspice
1/2 t. salt
1 c. butter, at room temperature
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 c. pure pumpkin
1 1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. craisins (dried cranberries)

1. Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a stand mixer. Gradually add in pumpkin, and then dry ingredients.

2. Using a spoon, mix in oats, chocolate chips, and craisins until just mixed in evenly.

3. Use a large spoon to portion out mixture on baking sheets covered in parchment paper.

4. Cook at 350 degrees for 12 - 14 minutes, or until cookies begin to brown.

Yum! I am linking this post up with the following link-ups:
