How To Make Magic 5 Cookies (Holiday Edition)

With mouthwatering ingredients such as white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and pecans, these magic 5 cookies are fully loaded with taste and flavor.

Preparation: 1 hour 15 minutes
Cooking: 11 minutes
Additional Time: 34 minutes
Total: 2 hours



  • cupsall purpose flour,spoon & leveled
  • 1tspbaking soda
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • ½tspsalt
  • 3cupsold fashioned rolled oats
  • 1cupunsalted butter,(230 g), softened to room temperature
  • 1cupbrown sugar,light or dark, packed
  • ¼cupgranulated sugar
  • 2large eggs,room temperature
  • 2tsppure vanilla extract
  • 1tbspmolasses,optional
  • ½cupwhite chocolate chips
  • ½cupcranberries,dried
  • ½cupcoconut,sweetened shredded
  • ½cuppecans,chopped


  1. Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and oats together. Set aside.

  2. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together on medium speed until smooth, for about 2 minutes. 

  3. Add the eggs and beat on high until combined for about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the vanilla and molasses and mix on high until combined.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined. With the mixer running on low speed, add the white chocolate, dried cranberries, coconut, and pecans.

  5. Chill the dough for 1 hour in the refrigerator. If chilling for longer than a few hours, though, allow to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before rolling and baking because the dough will be quite hard and the cookies may not spread.

  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

  7. Roll balls of dough and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes until very lightly browned on the sides.

  8. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
