You've never had oatmeal cranberry cookies this loaded before! Tons of chai spice, soft cranberries, and sweet vanilla glaze make these oatmeal cookies a crowd-pleaser every time!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 1 -1/2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place butter and sugar in the bowl of a large stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla to bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Add oats, flour, baking soda, spices, and salt to mixer and mix on medium speed until dough comes together. (dough will be slightly sticky) Gently stir in cranberries.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough into 1-in balls and place on prepared baking sheets 1-2 inches apart. Bake cookies at 350F 9-10 minutes or until edges are golden (cookies will appear underdone in the middle---this ok) Cool cookies 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  • Make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk all glaze ingredients until smooth and drizzly. Drizzle glaze over slightly-cooled cookies and let set 10 minutes. Enjoy!
