This make-ahead, giftable cookie is one of our Editors' favorites. The indulgent white chocolate plays nicely with the tart-sweet cranberries, making this oatmeal cookie a favorite for any dessert fan.

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating until blended.

Step 2

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in cranberries, pecans, and oats.

Step 3

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2" apart onto lightly greased baking sheets.

Step 4

Bake at 375° for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 5

Microwave white chocolate and shortening in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl on HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring once. Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate, letting excess drip back into bowl. Place dipped cookies on wax paper; let stand until firm.
