Makes about 36 cookies


Total Time: 1 hour
Level: Easy


  • 3 cups Diamond Walnuts
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


Preheat oven to 350. To toast walnuts, spread evenly on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan. Bake, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and fragrant, 7 to 10 minutes. Coarsely chop and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and oats; add to sugar mixture and stir well to combine. Stir in dried cranberries and toasted walnuts.

Drop cookie dough by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
