31 Days of Cookies: Dark Chocolate, Cranberry, Oat and Pistachio Cookies

There's something for everyone in these nut, oat and chocolate holiday cookies from Cooking Channel.
By: Stephanie Le

On this 15th day of cookies, our guest blogger shares a kitchen-sink-style holiday cookie: They've got everything.

Christmas season is all about the cookies. They are Santa’s favorite treat, after all. These cookies are chewy, soft in the center, crispy on the edges, and full of oats, dark chocolate, cranberries and pistachios. They’re also super easy (and fast) to whip up. You can mix up a batch, scoop it out into balls and keep them in the freezer until you want a freshly baked treat. They’re perfect for those unexpected holiday visitors!

You can typically find her patiently waiting in the longest lines with her camera and empty stomach hoping to get a taste of the next big thing. Her first book, Easy Gourmet (Page Street Publishing), was published in 2014. She spends her days on recipe development and photography, and she blogs about her food adventures at  I am a Food Blog , winner of Saveur’s Blog of the Year and Best Cooking Blog 2014.
