For the cookie party: White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Bars

I'm always on the lookout for potential Christmas cookie recipes.   We give away many dozens of cookies each Christmas, and I keep tins of them in the freezer for gifting, taking to holiday parties or events, or serving to family or guests.  So when I see a recipe that looks good, I'm apt to either give it a try right away or file for later use.  In fact, I have an entire Pinterest board titled  Christmas Cookie Exchange,  where I've pinned many want-to try recipes.  You might enjoy visiting this fun board for your own cookie ideas.

Recently, I found and pinned this recipe for  White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Bars from Karly at Buns in My Oven.  White chocolate and cranberries are both such festive flavors, don't you think?  And I really like the idea of baking them into moist, chewy bars rather than a crunchy, crispy cookie.  Karly promises that these bars are "soft, chewy, and completely addictive".

Hope you'll try this recipe on the next cool rainy day!


  1. I make Raspberry-Oatmeal Bars which remind me a little of these. It's an oatmeal and dry yellow cake mix mixed with butter and pressed (half) into a 9x13 pan, then spread with raspberry jam, and topped with the other half of the mix sprinkled on top. So good.

  2. Sounds yummmy.... not a fan of white chocolate but would replace with dark chocolate
