These patriotic Red, White & Blue Oatmeal Cookies are perfect to bring to a holiday party. This easy cookie recipe feeds a crowd too.With the Fourth of July quickly approaching {I can’t believe I just typed that. Time is flying by.}, I love to create patriotic desserts or snacks to share at our July 4th picnic each year. Today, I am back with another Cookbook Re-Creation recipe. These delicious Red, White and Blue Oatmeal Cookies are perfect any time of the year, not just for the July 4th holiday.

Red White Blue Oatmeal Cookies Feature 3The Oatmeal Cookie recipe in The Village Baker’s Wife by Gayle & Joe Ortiz is my tried and true recipe for Oatmeal Cookies. They are moist, chewy and delicious. I love a soft and chewy cookie and these oatmeal cookies come out perfect EVERY time. My Red, White and Blue Oatmeal Cookies are adapted from this recipe.

Red White Blue Oatmeal Cookies TrayI am not a big fan of raisins, as the original recipe calls for, so I added dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and dried blueberries instead to round out my “red, white and blue” theme.

Red White Blue Oatmeal Cookies IcingAs a child, I loved iced oatmeal cookies. I drizzled these with some icing but this is totally optional. The icing brings me back to my childhood. If you are not a fan of the icing, they are just as good without.
