Dried cranberries add sweet-tart notes. These drop cookies would make a nice holiday gift.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Place sugar, butter, and sour cream in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until smooth. Add vanilla and egg whites; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring until blended. Fold in cranberries and chocolate chips.

Step 3

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until edges of cookies are browned. Cool on pan 5 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.

1.5 cups of sugar is ridiculous. I cut to 1 cup and even that was too much. At 15 minutes they were crispy and at 12 minutes they were chewy and soft. Both were okay, but I'm just not crazy about the flavor combination. Probably won't make again, but I'd go to 3/4 cup sugar if I did.

These were a little too cakey and sweet for my cookie preferences. I also used white chocolate chips, which may have contributed to the too sweet taste.

This is a great cookie. I used all white whole wheat flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup of fat free greek yogurt and 2 tbsps of egg whites (from the one in a carton), and the cookies were fine. I think 1.5 cups of sugar is a bit too much. Next time I'll cut it to just 1 cup. And oh, I also added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon to see if it tastes like Trader Joe's dunkers.

I used dark chocolate chips, though white chocolate would also be great, and Craisins. Delicious recipe!

These are very good cookies - when you add 1.5 cups of sugar to anything, it's going to be good. I also used white chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. The only problem I had was that most of the cookies ended up in the trash because they stuck horribly to the parchment. I don't know if this happened because of something I did wrong or because of the dough....

I just made these cookies and they turned out fantastic. I used dark chocolate mini-chips and cherry flavored cranberries and substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream. Fantastic!

We loved these cookies. They came out moist on the inside and had great texture from the cranberries, chocolate chips, and oats.

I thought this recipe was great, didn't taste like "healthy" cookies at all! I made half the batch with white chocolate chips (which my boyfriend prefers) and half with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (which I prefer). Both turned out fantastic. Only thing I might do next time is add more cranberry as I really like more tart to offset the sweet.

Soft cookie as compared to crisp but very tasty and satisfying. My husband and I both enjoyed them and I will make them again -- soon.
